Over at, Jason Newman has a rundown of last week’s Smirnoff Signature Mix Series show in NYC – a new series that unites some of Hip-Hop’s best and brightest MC’s and producers, who remix some of their classic tracks. Last week we brought you Common’s reworking of “The Light” courtesy of Just Blaze, and he performed this track live alongside such heavyweights as KRS-One and Q-Tip.


After Tip rocked a quick 20-minute set, Common stuck mainly to the uptempo tracks from his past two albums, hitting the crowd with “The People” and “Go” before showcasing his remix with Just Blaze of the Dilla-produced “The Light.”
