Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Common Market
Title: Tobacco Road
Label: Massline Media

Sabzi and RA Scion definitely believe in a slow build. The first eleven seconds of "Tobacco Road" are a simple but hypnotic beat. Next up is a simple but effective piano riff all the way to the 35 second mark, at which point Scion's voice is finally heard and the beat is laced up with a little extra bass. The impatient short attention span rap fan will have moved on by this point, but that's their own loss. The intelligence of a Common Market track musically and lyrically is second to none and "Tobacco Road" is no exception. "No opportunity was offered us, I had my sights on/bein gone 'fore they cut the lights on, Brian's Song." This is just a taste of their new full-length album of the same name but it tastes pretty damn good to me.
