“It’s been 20 years since the release of “I Used to Love H.E.R.,” the classic hip-hop parable that affirmed Common’s reputation as one of the most nuanced, socially-conscious rappers in the industry. But after two decades, the rapper’s work still has that incisive, intellectual edge: “Kingdom,” his latest song, is a profound exploration of religion and violence in Chicago.” ~ Slate Magazine
