The “Be (Intro)” from Common’s Be album ranks near the top of my favorite intros of all time. I played the double bass for a couple years in elementary school, so hearing the play of the acoustic bass by Derrick Hodge really drew me into the song the first time I heard it. James Poyser on the keys and J Dilla’s sample of “Mother Nature” by Albert Jones really makes this one of the best intros of the last decade.
