This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

October 6th – Common Sense releases his debut album, “Can I Borrow A Dollar?”, on Relativity Records on this day in 1992.

The Chi-town rapper, who would later drop the Sense from his name, produced three underground hit singles off his first album, “Take It EZ”, “Breaker 1/9” and “Soul By The Pound”.

Producers on “Can I Borrow A Dollar?” included The Beatnuts, No I.D. and Twilite Tone.

Miss Jones and Rayshel would guest on the set.

Common’s witty wordplay and intellectual conscientious approach on his debut set, would establish him as part of the new wave of conscious hip-hop that would also eventually include Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and The Roots.
