HipHope.com has been off for a while, but coming back, the first thing we do is get to go see Common perform a free concert here in NYC, Brookfield Plaza. Manhattan’s downtown, World Trade Center area. Common performed great all night and had the crowd rocking. He brought a woman to the stage and acted like it was a date, got to know her on stage for a few minutes while the band played. He came back and spit several freestyles about her that were mind blowing. Opening for him was Lion Babe, a dope singer with a great voice, an awesome producer and a lot of energy. She was good, but went too long because we were all standing in the heat waiting for Common to come on. But she was nice though.
The first minute and a half of the show….
