Artist of the Week: Common


Artist of the Week: Common


The 'Universal Mind Control' turns into a 'dreamer' and a 'believer' who sets his eyes on the top 10 spot of the U.S. album chart.

Common is eying another top 10 album. The G.O.O.D Music rapper is predicted to easily break the top 10 list on Billboard Hot 200 with his ninth studio effort titled "The Dreamer, The Believer" which is due to come out across the United States on December 20.

He collaborates with Nas, Maya Angelou, John Legend and Lonnie "Pops" Lynn in the CD. On Monday, December 12, he held an intimate listening party at Catch not only to showcase his new music but also share some story behind the making of the album.

One of the personal songs he recorded is "Lovin' I lost". He confessed, "Ya'll know Common be talkin' that love s***." After a bitter break-up, he said "it's hard to take down the pictures." That's when he poured his heart out in his music and turned into a "hopeless hip hop romantic."

Containing a total of twelve tracks, the album "delivers the consciousness Common's audience has to come expect from him, but also a rawness and passion that might come as a surprise. Some might even say that he's rapping with a chip on his shoulder."

Just in time for the album release, Common releases a music video for a song called "Celebrate". It features a surprise party to welcome home a soldier after he served his duty outside the country. The guests of the celebratory bash include fellow rappers Ludacris and Tyga.
