*Come 2011, the world of Hip Hop will be introduced to another phenomenal collaboration. Common revealed that he will be releasing his ninth studio album, fully loaded with one of the greatest, Nas, on a remix of a track called “Ghetto Dreams.”
In true Common fashion, the album, “The Dreamer, The Believer,” will only contain a few collabos.
“When somebody buys an album they’re looking to hear you,” he said. “They’re buying your album for you or a song that they love that you do, and you have to be able to stand on your own.”
But he obviously likes to throw in something with a twist every once in a while.
Not to mention he and other Chi-town artists, Lupe Fiasco and Jennifer Hudson, recorded a track for the sports series, “Replay,” where athletes get to rematch the game that forever shook their careers.
For Common, he felt right at home.
“I love sports so much, so anything I can do revolving around sports, especially basketball or football, I’m there,” he says. “I felt honored and inspired to be working with Jennifer and Lupe. It was a win, win-win, win.”
