Deluxe 2LP edition includes the original album plus 3 remixes of the title cut, pressed on blue and butter cream colored wax with gatefold jacket featuring new liner notes from Common and producer NO I.D. Original Lab review:
Common's first album (Can I Borrow A Dollar?) had some promise, but he really solidified himself with Resurrection, one of the best full lengths of the era. A rare sophomore effort that overshadows the debut. It's another of the golden era hip hop albums that was really made as a whole (vs. the hit single focus today). No obvious weaknesses here as the lyricism and beats win games. NO I.D. plays Phil Jackson behind the boards as he puts some magic into the beats. Amazing shit: "Resurrection," "I Used to Lover Her," "Communism," "Chapter 13," "Watermelon," "Nothin to Do" and "Maintaining". Guaranteed this will be glued to your turntable.
