One of my favorite old school rappers, Common, is releasing his 8th album, Universal Mind Control, on December 9, 2008. Besides Kanyes' album, this was another album ive been waiting impatiently for. I Heard a couple tracks and Common takes a different approach to his fans. Instead of the usual concious hip hop by Common, this album seems to have more of a "fun" and "party" vibe. The tracks I heard are pretty good, what do you think? :
Common Ft. Pharell - Universal Mind Control
Common Ft. Kanye West - Punch Drunk Love
Common Ft. Pharell - Gladiator

Eighteen and unstoppable, London born Jourdan Dunn, only two years in the game and already known as the next Naomi. While shopping with a friend in Primark at the age of 16, Dunn was discovered and signed that same year to Storm Management in London, the same agents who discovered the famous Kate Moss. Early 2007, Jourdan debuts at the fall Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren shows in New York and Milan along with snagging French and American Vogue editorials. As well as the cover of Italian Vogue. She was the first black model to walk for Prada in over ten years. At only 17 at the time, that's pretty remarkable. She says she's known for her long legs and standing high at 5'10. In my opinion, Jourdan is becoming one of the fresh new darker faces that the modeling industry so badly needs along with Chanel Iman and Arlenis Sosa, two other upcoming supermodels of mixed descent.
