More Info:

While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Angeles.  Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?.  Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks.  It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor.  Long out-of-print, Can I Borrow A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last.  This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”.
