Common – “The Ladder” [LISTEN]
The folks behind the Catch The Throne mixtape clearly care less about leaving any music to our imaginations prior to its March 11 release date. With Big Boi and Wale’s contributions circulating the Internets, the show continues with a track by Common called “The Ladder.”
The Chicago MC’s penchant for storytelling goes without saying, and made him a perfect candidate to detail Game of Thrones‘ intricate plot on wax. “Threats coming from different ages/ Death is ageless, life is dangerous/ Change is the only thing guaranteed,” raps Common in a way that pertains to both the HBO series and the violence plaguing his hometown.
Our only gripe about this cut is that Common only provides one verse. Stream “The Ladder” below, and give us your thoughts on it in the comments.
