Common Raps Common, No Message Says Old Woman

05/22/2009

Breakfast at Sulimays is a web video series featuring three old folks sitting around a cup of Joe in Philly talking indie music and hip hop. Starring Ann, Joe, and Bill, the trio review artists from Dan Deacon to Common. On this featured clip, Ann talks about Common’s “Universal Mind Control,” off his new album Universal Mind Control. After seeming into the song, with her sing-a-long “boomdippitydip dip,” she cans Common for rapping about nothing. “Usually when they rap, they rap about what’s going on, but on this ‘Universal Mind Control’ they are just mishmoshing,” says Ann.

Later in the clip, Bill falls for Bon Iver’s “Blood Bank.” Ann calls it really “emotional.” Oh old folks!
