The second offering of music inspired by Just Wright, starring Queen Latifah and Common. The movie comes out next Friday.

Peace Ya’ll,

This is the “Just Wright” Mixtape: Volume 2. I would like to thank all of you all out there that supported volume 1. This is just a second installment of music that was inspired by the movie, “Just Wright.” It’s getting close to the release date (May 14, 2010) ya’ll. And I am getting very excited now.

Love,
Common

Lonnie promised new music for Volume 3, hopefully it’s not just a rehashing of this unreleased Finding Forever throwaway track.

Music arranged by Twilite Tone. Track list and stream after the jump.

Lonnie delivers his latest vlog to clarify that Common presents Just Wright Mixtape: Volume 1 was just music inspired by the movie and, although he only mentioned a Volume 2 in his blog post on Friday, that Volume 3 will contain some new music that he’s been working on with Karriem Riggins (including a remake of “Next Time”) and No I.D.

If carried out properly, this might actually end up to be a pretty clever way to promote the movie – if all these tapes drop before/around the movie’s release date… so maybe I spoke too soon on Friday. We’ll see.

Don’t get your hopes up, there’s no new Common on this mixtape. There actually isn’t anything Common on it. It’s just presented by Coporate Comm. Accompanied by this message he left on his blog:

Peace Ya’ll

This is straight up feel good music inspired by “Just Wright”. Enjoy!

Love,
Common

This tweet from earlier today reveals that he’s using the word mixtape in the 6th grader “I made you a mixtape” meaning of the word – not “the G.O.O.D. Music has arrived” kind of way.

Maybe it’s just me being impatient for The Believer, but some of us were expecting some new shit on this. It’s definitely a smart way to get the movie’s poster and release date on every urban hip hop blogs.

Video: Trailer for Just Wright starring Common

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Starring Queen Latifah & Lonnie Lynn, who had this to say:

I’m very very excited for ya’ll to check out the new Just Wright trailer. I really dig it and can’t wait for it to come out May 14. (It’s my first lead ya’ll!) Check out my hoopin skills and let me know what you think. I’m writing now and working with No I.D. and I’m also working on a pilot for a tv show that deals with wrongly accused convicts. It’s really a concept that shows the way their life is after jail. Keep me posted on what ya’ll think of the movie.
