Like Water For Chocolate is the 4th album by Common, released on March 28th 2000 via MCA Records. The LP is named after Spanish romance novel Like Water For Chocolate by Laura Esquivel, a phrase which originally meant for someone to reach the peak of their anger. However, as he told MTV, Com’s take on it is more interpersonal, connected to his personality and character: I first saw the title and thought that its was real interesting, and I was like, ‘Man, this is different. So, I used Like Water For Chocolate to represent the water side in me, which is a Pisces, and the chocolate represents the soul, the blackness in the music. Across the project, Common discusses a wide range of topics - mainly ghetto oriented - from pimping to Black Panther tributes. The album also boasts his most successful single, The Light, a rare instance of a non-misogynistic romance song in hip hop.
