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.
