Common in the White House

commonobamaNow I’ve heard about rap concerts going down at the White House in the last few years but damn NPR always find ways to pull off something cool. This time NPRs Tiny Desk Concerts were invited to the White House to record Common perform. This Tiny Mix Tape concert brings a incredible vibe I mean you got to remember this is in the White House one of the most recognised and known buildings in America.

This has to be significant. Especially during Obama’s last month of his presidency to have things like this go down and have real culture going on in the White House. This is truly amazing and a shows how pure art and music is in this day and age and how close to our hearts we do find these things.

Also that we respect artists to the point we look into their views on the world and what people actually have to say not just enjoy the art they create and praise them for their mind and not just creativity.

This is another step forward. Not to mention it’s a insanely good concert. Commons vocals are smooth the music is smooth. Common really does bring a amazing vibe not just rapping but also using spoken word to perfection.

The man seems to be getting more smoother and soulful with age. I mean damn this suits the White House vibe perfectly. It’s respectful it’s smooth it’s jazzy and chilled. Suits the situation to a T. Common is flawless in this performance and totally chilled I really do like when he breaks it down like this with a full band. this is something I’d really enjoy live and as a tour.

A great performance and great show put together by NPR Tiny Desk Concerts. A truly amazing on point performance of Common and band that he put together for the occasion.

Setlist:

  • “I Used To Love H.E.R.”
  • “Letter To The Free”
  • “The Day The Women Took Over”
  • “Little Chicago Boy”
