Video: “Ghetto Dreams” – Common & Nas

With “Ghetto Dreams” it’s evident Common and Nas aren’t watching the throne, they believe they sit atop it. I can’t deny that this joint goes hard. With Nas admitting his short comings I’m noticing his raps are better. Much better train of thought and as you know the flows been there. Maybe I’ll purchase the next Nas CD. Yea right, smarten up!

Throwback Thursday: Love Of My Life – Erykah Badu feat. Common

To continue in my ode to LeBron today’s throwback comes from the the grammy award winner Erykah Badu. I picked Love Of My Life because she won a grammy for it in 2003, LeBron’s rookie year. Yep this was almost 8 years ago. We’re getting old man.

Just Wright : Mixtape Vol. 1

I don’t know why this is being herald on the internet as “Think Wright : The mixtape vol. 1″ because the cover clearly says “Just Wright : The mixtape vol. 1″ As aformentioned elsewhere this doesn’t have any new Common tracks on it but it is a true mixtape. An eclectic array of different types of music. Somewhat a score as you would for the movie.

Catch the movie trailer and a tracklisting cover after the jump. Since they aren’t pressed anymore are they really regarded as back covers?

New Common x Jamie Foxx Album???


I know everyone & their moms wants to do a collabo album these days but I do have to say this one seems interesting. At a show down in Philly, Jamie says that him & Common are making an album. Not too sure if it’s true or not, but that Common freestyle makes me want to get up & run around the block a few times.

Universal Mind Control (Cover x Track Listing) – Common

Universal Mind Control

Here’s the official cover x track listing for Common’s upcoming album, Universal Mind Control. Due out Dec. 9th, but I’m still a little concerned with the 10 track album. This dude needs to be giving the masses more than an EP. I’ll let you be the judge my dukes.

Do The Right Thang – Ludacris
Feat. Common x Spike Lee

Ludacris

This album is shaping up to be on my MUST BUY list for the end of ’08. Every track has a different vibe but still they work towards the same goal, tying it into the title of the album, Theater of the Mind. Luda recruits the help of Chi-Town’s own Common & BK’s greatest director, Spike Lee (how could he pass down the chance to be on a track named after one of his acclaimed movies???). Take a trip down this psychological roller coaster ride & enjoy the effects my dukes.

Common On KUBE 93′s Sound Session


Chi-Town’s savior (yeah I said it, so what???), Common chops it up on the KUBE Sound Session. He talks about his upcoming “Universal Mind Control” album, his creative process working with the Neptunes, upcoming acting roles, his classic catalog, the presidential election & whole bunch more. I’m steadily waiting for him to drop another classic album.
