13. Common “Invocation” / “Hungry” (1997)
Why did I put these two joints together? Well, because Common dropped a split video for them, so I figured I could do that here as well (if you didn’t watch Rap City, YO! or have the Box you probably didn’t know that). I mean, I was going to include both of them anyway. For many, “Invocation” was the pinnacle of One Day It’ll All Make Sense: an amazing jazzy beat and next level wordplay from Com. But in contrast, “Hungry” was a grimier record. Straight MCing — rough, rugged and raw. It just showed the duality of the project, and also the ability of No ID and Common to seamlessly play with sounds while keeping it cohesive.
