Common – Strange Fruit (Unreleased)

November 26, 2009

There are many things I dont understand about the album creation process but there are 2 that haunt me most often:

1. I dont understand how artists cant tell that beats they’ve selected are wack
2. I dont understand how songs that sound better than the majority of an album are left off to be unreleased

Luckily, this track doesnt suffer from #1 but it is a victim of #2. Check out this Kanye produced gem from the Finding Forever sessions, Strange Fruit, with John Legend on singing duty. Kanye even chose a NEW Nina Simone sample for this one!
Nevertheless, it’s been unearthed so enjoy
