Common - Soul by the Pound

Music video by Common performing Soul by the Pound. (C) 1992 Columbia Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment


"Soul by the Pound" is the third single from rapper Common's 1992 debut album, Can I Borrow a Dollar?. Its beat, produced by Immenslope, is similar to much production from Common's second album, Resurrection. Its beat contains samples from "I Like It" by DeBarge, "Feelin' It" by Ultramagnetic MC's, "Sneakin' in the Back" by Tom Scott, and "A Chorus Line" by Ultramagnetic MC's (Tim Dog). It is considered to be a "black solidarity" track, but has been attacked for its misogyny. A music video was made for the "Thump Mix" version of this song, but not for the album version. "Soul by the Pound (Thump Mix)" contains samples from "Pot Belly" by Lou Donaldson, "I Know You Got Soul" by Eric B. & Rakim, "Jazz (We've Got)" by A Tribe Called Quest (Q-Tip), "Tonight's Da Night" by Redman, and "Check It Out" by Grand Puba with Mary J. Blige. The "Thump Mix" can be found on the Guidance Recordings compilation album 2001: A Rhyme Odyssey.
