common’s “misunderstood” – off his forthcoming album, finding forever, produced by devo springsteen who samples nina simone’s “don’t let me be misunderstood” – released in 1964 on her album broadway-blues-ballads

nina simone – don’t let me be misunderstood:

common’s rhymes sound so effortless…some of his best lyrics in recent memory…

he knew the president wasn’t addressing him

though dead presidents wasn’t dressing him

two kids from hot sex, no protection-n

people don’t see how aids is affectin them


she dance and she dance she dance for dem

her body move – but her mind was manican

thinkin – i dunno where they hands have been

relationships with men have been so damaging

she thought back to when she was at howard and…dreams of doing scenes with terrence howard and

broadway plays and dancing with alv n em
