Video: Common Says Lyor Cohen Reached Out

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Comm had apparently been a free agent since the release of his last album, Universal Mind Control, in December 2008.

Common told MTV News. “He was like, ‘Look man, I know who you are. I always told you, you was one of my favorite MCs, and I really meant that.’

“I felt the sincerity in what he was saying. He didn’t tell me, ‘We’re going to do this, do that.’ He was more like, ‘I know how we can do your record, and I want to work this. I want this to be on my roster.'”

The article also mentions that Lonnie’s latest album, the highly-anticipated The Dreamer, The Believer, is due out in November.

Lyor Cohen Interview w/ Complex

Lyor Cohen recently spoke to Complex Magazine for The Shotcaller interview in their latest issue. They press him on his thoughts of a free music industry, why he can’t have any Kid Cudi conversations with his son, and what he thinks of Drake signing with his managers… instead of with him:

Speaking of new artists, many people were expecting Drake to sign with you at Warner Music. Did it disappoint you that he ended up going with Universal Motown?

A very disappointing thing. But I’m a lover of rap music. I want good things to happen to this industry. I have so much good fortune and already have everything. I feel like we have a terrific company, and we’re very old-school in that once we grip someone’s hand, fundamentally we believe that’s a deal. But that’s not this generation. They’ll grip someone’s hand and say they’re coming, but if someone offers them more they will renege. That’s not how we get down.

Did Drake do that?

I’ll keep that between Drake and myself.

Later in the interview, he says some pretty insightful things about what it was like “back in his day” and how none of the shit that people care about nowadays was even an issue back then.

Simmons: I could talk about Lyor better than he can. He’s so nice, he might not say it. He was so in love with the music and worked so hard for the artists. He made a lot of money with Run-DMC and then lost all his money on Whodini. He came from a wealthy family but stayed in a raggedy hotel room… He worked for no money for a long time. He was Andre [Harrell’s] secretary. Andre shit on him.
Cohen: No, excuse me. I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Simmons: I do. Andre had Lyor working hard as hell.
Cohen: I didn’t even know Andre at that time.
Simmons: Andre was the vice president of Rush.
Cohen: Wrong.
Simmons: And Lyor came in.
Cohen: Wrong, wrong. You have a really bad memory… I’m going to tell you how Lyor Cohen was invented… Continue reading this post…
