Posted By on December 8, 2009

    Common is currently preparing his new "Believer" album which he says will include production from Kanye West. The Chicago rapper says the new album should hit stores around summer of next year. "I'm actually working with No I.D. and Twilite Tone and Kanye West. Man, we're looking forward to making some powerful music," Common explained in an interview. "I feel really excited, man. [Me and No I.D.] did some preliminary pre-production type stuff, and it just felt so good to be working with him. It felt like, 'Man, life is really, really good.' It's full circle."

     Common continued "You meet up with the person who's partially responsible for beginning your career, and you're like, 'Man, this is really cool — that we meet at this place in our lives and our creative journeys and we really are enthused to work with each other.' [Me and Kanye] know that we want to do some raw hip-hop. That's exactly the direction and feel we want, so that's the basis of it. 'Ye and I definitely know we want to do some pure hip-hop. I'm looking for an early summer release." [Common Talks New Album With Kanye West – Watch Here]
