Common Preps New Album For 2013
In a recent interview with MTV News, in support of G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer compilation, the Chicago rap vet revealed he’s currently working the LP, which he hopes to drop in January 2013. Common said he also plans to hit the studio with frequent collaborator No I.D., and hopes that Kanye West will join the fold for the project.
“I am writing a new album. It will be coming out in January, and I’m looking forward to that,” he said. “My stuff will come at the top of the year maybe some songs out there on the street level, I’m going to work with No I.D. and looking to hopefully work with Kanye [West] and that’s some of the major people I’ll be working with, and whatever other great talents that I feel are going that direction that I want the album to be.”
Common’s ninth album, The Dreamer/The Believer, dropped in December 2011, and debuted at #18 on the charts with 69,000 copies sold.
