State of Clarity is one of the gems from Jazzmatazz volume 4, featuring Common. We sought to match the synergy between Common and Guru by pairing Pierce with New Jersey's Silent Knight. The song also features poet D. Noble, a North Carolina native. Producer Beats by Pete sampled The Beast's instrumental arrangement State of Clarity to make the track. Enjoy!
