It’s about to go down…

A sneak peak at the making of Common’s first single from The Dreamer, The Believer featuring Nas, “Ghetto Dreams”, which is out now on iTunes.

Earlier this week, MTV News spoke to Common and he revealed that No I.D. produced the entirety of his Warner Bros. debut.

    I hope they worked on more than just “Ghetto Dreams”

    Shame If after such a overdue collabo they just did one song together…

  12. jerry nice Says:

    What’s up with these fuckin artist and not releasing any info whatsoever on their upcoming projects?? If your jay electronica, and you haven’t built a solid fanbase yet, why would there not be a shred of information about your project? Same goes for kanye, jay, and j.Cole…although in all fairness to jay and kanye their supposedly having a listening party tonight and lift off supposedly drops Tuesday

  25. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    That KanJay Zest album may be underwhelming if it’s anything like H.A.M. tho.

    Y’all remember that tune? Or successfully forgot about it?

  26. 911 Says:

    LF: if nahggas is interested in purchasing a new DVD player, this Sony bluray 3D player with the built in wifi, Netflix, hulu, vudu, YouTube and a plethora of apps I wasn’t privy to until now is the way to go. I’m coppin’ one for the front room too. Shits dope.

  27. jerry nice Says:

    Jay and kanye fucked up messing with lex luger, your one of the greatest producers of all-time, why you messing with some kid? I expect lift off to be totally redeeming.

    ==================
    some people swear that HAM song is good….and it even has the white folk adding the term to their vocabulary

    but to me it never happend

  36. 911 Says:

    Yo’ damn, those two albums ain’t even on my iPhone & I thought I had niggas whole discography. Yeah, those sucked. Confirmed.

    So, aside from those two albums they’re pretty consistent from above average to damn near classic is the range for watch the throne. I mean, shit, it’s called watch the “throne”. Let’s hope throne isn’t code for the shitter i.e toilet.

    Daps

  37. 911 Says:

    One, y’all stay trifling.

  38. NovemberEnd Says:

    808 & Heartbreak is decent for what it was

    *ducks*

  39. tHe kiD fRanKiE Says:

    Day 808s is actuAlly good if u goin thru it w a chick
    He’s pretty spot on for the most part wit them songs
    Recent albums for s4l niggas: 808s, MbdtF, LTTP, TML, Miguel etc

  40. Remixznflow Says:

    oh shit… at ts1900 siting!? and missed the chance to throw shots at that cradigan wearing, gold toe socks loving, sun room lounging nigga?

    fuck…

  41. NovemberEnd Says:

    Its funny because when it first dropped I was leading the charge saying 808 was shitty album, during this time he was fresh off winning the sales battle w/ Curtis and it was all Kanye everything. When the album dropped niggas was saying Kanye is genius and this album is genre defining….SMH…I’m thinking he did a Pop album w/ autotune how is that genius?….niggas was spewing a lot of silly rhetoric…months later when all the Kanye hoopla died down I gave it another listen w/out any judgements made…and realized it wasn’t that bad, rather decent actually

    say the nigga that needed a “break from sex with women” for three months… females traumatized you so much you too a vacation…

  48. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    btw

    808s>>>>

    It’s a really good, fun, and UNIQUE sounding pop record. People complain about every rapper wanting the beats of the same heavyweight producers, but in pop it’s even worse. Kanye’s pop album was a lot more inventive and fresh than any other pop album in the years surrounding.

    His best albums are LAte Registration and College Dropout, but 808s still deserves it’s praise.

  49. Charles oakley Says:

    808′s >>>

    Shit ain’t great, but shit was good.
