Common’s “Resurrection” To Be Re-Released As 2CD Collector’s Edition


Large Pro’s remixes come to life on August 31, as Common and No I.D. do 24 pages of lost liner notes with Brian Coleman, on the ’94 LP’s re-release.

Within his extensive catalog, many Rap fans consider Common‘s sophomore 1994 album Resurrection to be his best work. The album, released on the new defunct Relativity Records, acknowledged Hip Hop’s decline “I Used To Love H.E.R.,” as well as toured Chicago in “Nuthin’ To Do.” With sample-driven production by No I.D., the album remains cherished by underground and mainstream Rap fans alike.

It has been announced that Get On Down will be re-releasing Resurrection complete with a bonus disc on August 31. That disc will contain two rare remixes by Large Professor, as well as instrumental and acapella versions of “Communism” and “I Used To Love H.E.R.”

The packaging will also include a 24-page booklet chronicling the album. Common and No I.D. sat down with author Brian Coleman to go in-depth about the album’s making and context. Coleman wrote Rakim Told Me: Hip Hop’s Lost Liner Notes several years ago. A fold out poster is also included.

Get On Down will be launching a series of Rap re-releases, stay tuned to GetOnDown.com
