Posted By on October 20, 2011

     Common recently pushed back his upcoming "The Dreamer, The Believer" album from next month to December. Common dropped a new freestyle while on the Funkmaster Flex show that you can listen to below!

     In related news, Common recently switched from longtime label Geffen Records to Warner Brothers, a move he recently explained to MTV (listen below).

"Point blank, I got a call from [Warner CEO] Lyor Cohen," he said. "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.'" (MTV)
