Common and Black Pegasus Presents A Holy Grail Seven INCH 45
Heads up!!! One of the most important vinyl releases in the recent history of vinyl releases is coming down the pike!!! Black Pegasus Records and M.C. Common Sense aka the world renowned lyricist Common just announced a rare release of Common’s early demo work Seven Sense coming exclusively on vinyl…uh oh!!
In the video below, Common speaks on the impending release, how it came together and what it means to drop these early works with Black Pegasus Record’s Marc Davis.
Here’s the official line on the release…DJ’s and vinyl enthusiasts are going to get perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to set the 1’s and 2’s on fire in a special way!
25 years ago on Chicago’s south east side on 87th street where you have up and coming M.C. Common Sense recording his debut album with future hip hop music production legends Twilight Tone and No I.D.
Can I Borrow A Dollar the debut album heralded a new hardcore jazz sound with non orthodox lyrical imagery and officially putting Chicago on the rap music map! But just like most albums some songs make the final cut while others disappear into obscurity never to be heard.
Luckily Marc Davis, child hood friend of Common Sense now known as Common preserved one of the only recordings of the original Charms Alarm and the U.A.C. Free Style.
Now for the first time these holy Grail songs are debuting on Black Pegasus Records on a super limited edition colored 7inch and part of the newly formed Seven Sense Series. The new series will be unreleased demos from Common and his original music family and spear headed by Marc Davis and original U.A.C. member David “Moe” Grant.
