Album Notes
When defined the word proverb means a wise saying. Well, when applied to one of Bomb Beach's most profound wordsmiths, the word takes on no less than the personification of its definition. Proverb Newsome has been dropping gems in ears since the early 90s. He first hit the national scene with his group 1Way in 1995 with the project Destination Unknown. Although 1Way is still active and Proverb is still a contributing member of the group, He wanted to try something different. He wanted to say something different. He wanted you to be able to hear more of who he is. Enter A Common Mans Opus, the debut solo project from Proverb. This is a collection of songs that speak directly from the heart of the artist. What he believes, why he believes it, the thrill of his victories and the bitter taste of his defeats. It's all here. This is as personal as he will get. P grew up off of Tamarind Avenue, a notorious area in West Palm Beach, Fl. Although his neighborhood was a little rugged, Proverb's parents taught him to make good choices. When his friends were doing whatever they wanted to do, Prov's pops had him inside doing homework & reading. They were simple people who wanted the best for their son. They worked hard and expected nothing less from him. As Prov matured many of the kids he grew up with were incarcerated while he was being scouted by two major universities to play football. It was not to be. Do to a knee injury in his senior year; he enrolled in college at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. He went there to major in journalism & mass communication. It was there that he pursued his love of radio by working at the campus radio station. He also had his musical horizons broaden by a music appreciation class. This opened up a world of new music to Proverb and influenced him as a musician as well At WVSU the campus radio station, Proverb was introduced to Jazz music in its best element. Back then the DJs actually spun vinyl. There were stacks of classics by Miles, Gillespie, Satchmo, Coltrane, Monk, Sanborn, Spyro Gyra and others. Proverb developed a love affair with Jazz. It was second only to Hip-Hop. "I have been blessed to do radio for over a decade now, and although my show is no longer on the air, U can find out more about it @" "It is madd humbling to be a small part of something soooo very important.......... That's God! To look at my life is to see what God can do if you just believe and trust Him."

Rap is not my music genre of choice, but as you all well know, quality transcends any form. The music is flat out good. (I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Audio Adreneline) and the lyrics hit you where you live. Prov's gift is bringing the never changing message of Truth in a VERY relevant and VERY powerful way. Be blessed!!!!!!!!!!!!


I totaly love this cd! I think it is the BEST!!!!!!

Prov's first solo project, a good thing.
Proverb's been a part of 1-Way for a LONG time, but this is his first solo project. And it goes to show how blessed he is. From the convicting and pure truthful lyrics, to the hot beats and tracks, this album has "must have" written all over it. He's got the experience of the veteran from being around the industry for years. Some people may call his style "old school", it sounds like an instant classic to me. This isn't dirty south sounding or east/west coast or anything like that. It's just a common man's rap about a God that's changed his world forever. I loved this album, the ONLY reason I gave it a 4/5 is because of it's length, only 10 songs. 10 GOOD songs, but it left me wanting more. Prov's been blessed, there's no question about that, I'm hoping that God goes on to bless us with another great album from the man from Bomb Beach.
