Video: Common Talks About The Believer

“For Believer, it was creating raw music, raw hip-hop,” the Chicago MC told MTV News last week. “I just wanted to create good hip-hop music. When I create albums, they develop as I go along, ’cause I have different thoughts and visions. And then as you create the music, it takes its own personality and spirit to it. But the beginning of it is raw hip-hop, it’s just soulful.” …

“Twilite Tone and No I.D., they produced my first three albums and they were the first producers I worked with,” he said. “And Kanye is an extension of them. Kanye always says No I.D. is his mentor. That’s how I met Kanye, through No I.D. So for me to have these three working on my album is going home again. But I’m always gonna offer something new and fresh.”

    1. I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.

    2. You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.

    3. Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?

    4. Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.

    5. Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.

    These are all Rush Limbaugh quotes.How can he possibly be considered for NFL ownership with all this baggage?Money talks but you gotta sell seats too.He’s too divisive,even for his own locker room.

    I’ll keep it real. I left it over a friends house the past 3 weeks and just got it back last weekend. Played a couple of tracks but couldnt really vibe to it. Keep in mind tho, it was the only thing I listened to for more than two weeks straight, which is unusual for me.

    Blood contaminated, vaccinated, lives fabricated
    Exaggerated authorization, Food and Drug Administration
    Testin poison in prison population
    My occupation to stop the innauguration of Satan
    Some claim that it was Reagan, so I come to slay men
    like Bartholemew, cause every particle is physical article

    A space night like Rom, consume planets like Unicron

    No. But I’m pretty sure the impending birth of his new seed freaked him out a little bit (like, “oh shit, I got two kids, I’m REALLY an adult now”), and he went to tag some trains like back in the day. Either that, or public drunkeness.

    As for BP3’s replay value.. I gave it a buncha spins when I first got it, now I’m only marginally aware of it’s whereabouts. MOTM is hanging out somewhere by my desktop compy… Both are good, worthy of re-spins.. I just think the way I’ve listened to music has changed.

    Well, there’s a lot of single women due to the aforementioned high percentage of gays, but I think most of them are strippers. And if you’re not a baller or entertainer/sports star, it’s mad boring. So, I’d say no.

    Housing is dirt cheap tho,especially if you’re coming from up north. I walked past an apartment complex where rent was $99 a month. Granted, it looked like it was from the post-apocalyptic parts of the Terminator films, so I guess you get what you pay for.

    Real talk. Every heterosexual woman wants to be married by the time she’s 30. If she’s a stripper and/or porn star, it just means she gave up on the dream.
