New Common record just months away
Fresh from working on Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music project, Cruel Summer (although he wasn't on that record enough if you ask us), Common has announced he is working on his tenth studio album.
The as yet untitled follow up to last years The Dreamer, The Believer is likely to drop sometime in January 2013 with the Chicago MC revealing to MTV that two big names have already been lined up on production duties:
I am writing a new album. It will be coming out in January, and I'm looking forward to that. My stuff will come at the top of the year maybe some songs out there on the street level, I'm going to work with No I.D. and looking to hopefully work with Kanye [West] and that's some of the major people I'll be working with, and whatever other great talents that I feel are going that direction that I want the album to be."
Let's just remind ourselves of what Common is capable of when teaming up with Kanye West.
