TAG Body Spray | Signature Series

As far as Summers go, 2008 was a pretty big one. From Nas dropping his controversially (un)-named album to Jay-Z returning to the mic and promising to deliver another installation in the Blueprint series, all of the hit-makers were in top form. This summer even marked the spot for Tag Records first signed artist Q. Not only is dude pretty nice with the rhyme skills, but his signing is a pretty amazing example of how far hip-hop has come. Anytime a major corporation backs a project it’s a big deal. When one of the biggest companies in the world backs it, best believe that people are waiting for that album to drop.

But while hip-hop waits to hear what Q has to say, I’ve been wondering where some of the more anticipated releases from this Summer went.

Particularly, rapper Common’s still unreleased Summer album.

Big Com-Sense’s album Invincible Summer was supposed to drop a few months back, but since becoming hip-hop’s goodwill ambassador for Presidential nominee Barack Obama, all’s been quiet with regards to his record. Even so, that hasn’t been a bad thing. Since Common’s thrown his signature hat and b-boy stance into the political arena, one could argue that he’s become even more of a household name. And lest you forget, dude did do Gap commercials. You don’t get more household than that.

In any event, I got to thinking and it seems that the best time for Common to drop Invincible Summer (or Fall, Spring or Winter) would be after the country finds out who’s going to be the president of these here United States. That way Common could either release the record on a positive note or retool the entire project to make a dark, brooding record that reflects how he really, really feels about the way things turned out. Not saying that he’ll be incredibly upset if the other guy wins, but you get the point.
