2015 Press release by Wax Poetcs Japan and Qrates:

A vinyl compilation that captures the timeless moments shared by one of hip-hop's finest MCs, Common; and one of the greatest producers of all time, the late J Dilla.
Wax Poetics Japan and Universal Music Japan proudly present a special vinyl collection of tracks by Common, who has become one of hip-hop's brightest stars, produced by J Dilla, the talented producer who helped Common bring out some of his best moments on wax.

If you know anything about hip-hop, you're probably already aware of who Common is. After debuting with his single "Take It EZ" in 1992, the Academy Award-winning rapper/actor Common has established himself as an important voice in hip-hop. For more than two decades, Common has blessed the world with his music of love, self-awareness and upliftment, characterized by his thought-provoking, poetic lyricism and sample-based soulful production. Some of his most important work have been produced by the Soulquarians, the hip-hop/neo-soul supergroup featuring the world-renowned beat maestro, J Dilla. Wax Poetics Japan has curated a 2xLP colored vinyl compilation featuring 12 timeless tracks from Common’s three albums (2000’s Like Water for Chocolate, 2002’s Electric Circus, and 2005’s Be) that J Dilla worked his magic on.

Show your support to make this project happen here at Qrates before its funding period ends on October 10, 2015!



For the 12 tracks, check out the tracklisting below. All of these songs are certified classics loved by hip-hop fans worldwide. Instead of the usual black vinyl, we have decided to go with marble colored vinyl, to symbolize the mix of the duo’s singular talents. If you love Common and/or Dilla’s music, this is one compilation you do not want to miss.

All plans include A3 (H420×W297mm) sized posters of Common and J Dilla as well as two types of Wax Poetics stickers.


Vinyl Set: 5,940 yen (incl. tax)
