Common Sense (Lonnie Rashied Lynn), a rapper from Chicago, boasted lyrics that were above the average for shunning the usual stereotypes of machoism and violence. The sound on Can I Borrow a Dollar? (1992) and especially Resurrection (1994), produced by Chicago's Dion "No ID" Wilson, was a mellow jazz-hop that well counterpointed the verbose outpour. One Day It'll All Make Sense (1997), credited to Common (no Sense anymore), and Like Water for Chocolate (2000) featured several guests (even jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove on the latter), but indulged in lazy laid-back atmospheres. On the contrary, Electric Circus (2002) was a daring and eccentric opus, reminiscent of psychedelic soul and progressive rock.

Be (2005) and Finding Forever (2007) were more trivial. Universal Mind Control (Geffen, 2009), produced mostly by the Neptunes, targeted the dancefloor. The Dreamer/The Believer (2011), produced by No I.D. in a completely different style (less electronic and more soul-oriented), contains the Nas collaboration Ghetto Dreams.
