One Day It'll All Make Sense

With his previous records (released under the name Common Sense), Common demonstrated that he was one of the few Midwestern rappers to have a unique vision, but One Day It'll All Make Sense is where his talents come into focus. Blending hip-hop with jazz is a '90s cliché, but Common relies on bebop rhythms and street poetry, resulting in an album that has a loose, organic flow. The grooves have deep roots and the rhymes have humor, heart, and intelligence -- few of contemporaries could achieve the emotional impact of "Retrospect for Life" or the gospel-tinged "G.O.D. (Gaining One's Definition)." And that extra layer of emotional involvement gives One Day It'll All Make Sense a weight and spirituality that makes the record special. Certainly few of his peers have made an album as musically and lyrically rich as this, and it's about time others follow his lead.

One Day It'll All Make Sense

I am trusting God with my marriage and my husband. He is very unhappy and considering divorce. I have experienced him walking away from the Lord over the past several years and hardening his heart toward me. I am trying to work on our relationship to make things better, but he seems to be giving up. Trusting God that he has good things ahead for me and for my husband no matter what happens in the future.

For my 18 year old son who suffers from mental illness and addiction to alcohol. That he may find his way back to God and us. For God put good friends and mentors into his life. For wisdom to make right choices. For peace in our family and wisdom for me and his dad on helping him where we can but not letting him take advantage of us.

If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it - does it make a sound?Heck yes it does!!Sound is a physical phenomenon, just like thoughts, light and all other natural occurrences.

The album's recording was put on hold for up to a year as Common was becoming a father. After the birth of his daughter, Common returned to finish the album, albeit with a newer sense of responsibility, which he relates to his transformation from bachelor to father.

-Maya Angelou"Common is a 360-degree human being, and I don't say that about many people. He never needed to "pimp the hood" to achieve his deserved success. He is an eloquent and honorable role model and his memoir is a perfect example of his depth as a human being. In addition, reading about his childhood and upbringing in Chicago is really a trip - because we went through so many of the same experiences albeit decades apart. Chicago is still the roughest and primary "Institution of Hard Knocks," and if you can make it there, you can truly make it anywhere!" -Quincy Jones"Raw in its honesty, profound in its insights, "One Day It'll All Make Sense "establishes Common as a voice that is as compelling on the page as it is on a record. This is not simply the story of an individual artist but a crucial page the history of hip hop itself." -Jelani Cobb, author of "The Substance of Hope"Common distinguishes himself here as a true artist and a writer of deep talent. This book is the story of an artist in constant evolution, one who embodies the strength of the brilliant woman that raised him, the love of the Southside Chicago land that spawned him, and the raw spirit of the pro basketball player who fathered him. I've always heard that the people of Southside Chicago were special. I'm glad their native son Common shows us why. --James McBride Author of "The Color of Water" About the Author

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt. Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface. One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks. May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.) May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl. Possible minor surface noise when played.

And I want to thank the Secretary for being here today, and for, quite frankly, taking the job that he's taken. It's not often I get introduced by a Nobel laureate. But we have, I think, one of the finest and most qualified Secretaries of Energy -- I would say the most qualified since the department came into existence. And he is a no-nonsense guy that knows what he's doing and, like all of you, wants to get this done.

-- talk to my grandkids, then my kids, then my wife, then my staff, but I can tell you one thing, my passion to make sure this is done right, it may exceed my abilities. But I'm telling you this is not anything that I am fooling around with, nor I expect any of you.

Let me point out one other thing. If we don't get this right, folks, this is the end of the opportunity to convince the Congress that anything should go to the states. Your state legislatures are struggling. Your governors are struggling. The members of the House and Senate are struggling. They don't want to take up one another's burden. Everyone in this room, I hope you are, in the best sense of the word, good politicians, as well as having very sharp pencils. So I hope you'll understand the dynamic at play here.

So if this -- six months from now, if the verdict on this effort is that we've wasted the money, we built things that were unnecessary, or we've done things that are legal but make no sense, then, folks, don't look for any help from the federal government for a long while. They're going to make sure -- the folks in the House and in the Senate are going to make sure you wear the jacket, not them.

This is not just an opportunity to help us get out of this mess we're in, but it's an opportunity to begin to lay the foundation for a competitive America in the 21st century. That's something we can never lose sight of. Everyone in this room is has a huge responsibility. We all have the responsibility to make sure this legislation is implemented with maximum efficiency. And we have the responsibility to make sure there's unprecedented transparency for the America people.

And third, to make investments in those areas that would create the jobs of the future. That's why we've invested in new technologies like wind and solar, a new smart grid for America's electricity, a new superhighway of electricity transmission in the United States of America, and health care technology, to lay the groundwork for saving billions of dollars -- it's the one thing that will get us out of this long-term trajectory of nothing but rising deficits.

And today I'm proud to be announcing two allocations of resources that are a good example of how this money should be spent. First, through the Department of Energy, $8 billion in weatherization funding and energy efficiency grants are going to go out to the states. This is funding that will both create jobs now, and make critical investments in making America more energy efficient in the future.

I will be leaving here to meet with -- I assemble the Cabinet about once a week. It's unusual, I know, for Vice Presidents to call Cabinet meetings, but we feel this is so important that I meet with the Cabinet members to sit down and I want to know every week what they're doing, what their plans are, how much money is out the door, how they're attempting to account for it. I met yesterday for a long time with the IG who's in charge of this, Mr. Devaney, and him putting together his staff and the resources he needs to oversee this. As he says, we're not looking to find corruption, we're looking to prevent it. We're looking at the front end of this to prevent errors -- to prevent errors. This is not a witch hunt. This is to make sure that we spend this money well.

So, folks, we have a lot to show for -- show to our constituents. It's important, as I said, that they see that citizens know in your state what long-term investments are being made and that there's a prospect, in their view, that it will pay off. People will support us. They know this isn't going to turn around quickly. I can make an analogy to the crime bill. Years ago some of you I worked with on the crime bill. I wrote that bill in the early '90s; it got passed in '94 because of the great leadership of President Clinton, and we passed the bill. And everybody got all nervous after it got passed -- said, Biden, you talked us into this and we're spending $30 billion and the crime rate is not going to go down in a year. And the crime rate could not go down in a year, it would not go down in a year. It was going to take time to build this in.

But guess what. We were transparent with all of you, we were transparent with the American people. We pointed out exactly how many cops we were funding, how many prisons were being built, how much money was being spent with regard to prevention. We made it absolutely transparent. We went all over the country. You, governors, congresspersons, all made it clear to the American people every time we spent a dollar with a new badge. And the reason why it worked is that people said, okay, this makes sense; I think this will produce results. And it did. It ended up for nine years reducing the violent crime rate on average 8.5 percent per year.
