Common Speaks On Upcoming LP With Nas, Current Standing With G.O.O.D. Music

Com Sense says his album with Nasir Jones will happen and explains its origins.

Common tapped Nas for his latest single “Ghetto Dreams,” but as previously reported, the duo has much more in store. Speaking with Hard Knock TV, Com Sense reiterated that their collaborative LP is still in the works and that it originated as a mixtape titled Nas (Dot) Com.

“At some point, we will do that. We’d talked about it and we had a good idea to call it Nas (Dot) Com. That was actually going to be a mixtape at one point,” he revealed. “But we decided that we should make it an album. And we will. Nas is working on his album right now and my album is coming, November 22nd.”

He also spoke on his current standing with G.O.O.D. Music, explaining that although his upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer won’t release on the label, he’s still part of the family.

“I’m still G.O.O.D Music affiliated, for sure. I’ll always be,” he said. “Me and ‘Ye, that’s my brother. I’m still part of the whole G.O.O.D. Music family. It’s not coming out through the G.O.O.D. Music label, but I’m still always associated. I’m still part of G.O.O.D. Music.”

Watch the full interview below, where he also speaks on working with No I.D., a potential Soulquarians album and more.

      YADIG, Only new school, wet behind the ears, just started listening to hip hop, skinny pants, kissin men, would even type something like that. That's the problem with this generation, everything your favorite EMCEE is saying and doing has already been done before. Pay Homage little kid, this is why they say HIP HOP is dead, because little fockers like you don't pay homage and ultimately the art form will be killed by kids that kiss each other and wear tight pants.

    • YADIG Is The Dumdest Nig Ever

      Hey Nigie Bitch!!! You Chose To Listen To Fags On The Mic Instead Of Kings. Your Boy Wears Women's Pants And Kissed Another Man In The Mouth And You Still Fuck Wit Em. What Does That Say About You Since You Like These Two Fags So Much?

    smh... nas makes the worst business decisions ever... so fucking disappointing he has become. Common's gay ass squeaky bullshit delivery needs to stay on them neo-soulquarian cocacola commercials... while he gargle on that tennis players nut sack. fuckin queer... seen his dumn ass wandering melrose, tryna get attention cuz he a fuckin faggot ass herb ass mark ass nigga

    • LAMES THESE DAYS

      ^^^ probably a big fan of Common & wanted to work on a song with him but couldn't face the fact that he's music sucks & Common didn't want to work with you.

  • J-Franks

    Too fuckin awesome

  • Brandon Hamm

    Common solo, Nas solo & collab albums will all be great

  • Wayne Is Lord

    the album will be sick. two of the dopest rappers of all time together. i knoe the album will be sick as long as No.I.D produces most of the tracks. Nas has to step out of his element for once and open his mind up to new/up to date production. Nasty was nasty but niggas still wanna hear Nas on some fast pace beats like he was on the Carter 4 outro. If they can keep the beats hot and bring the same chemistry they showed on Ghetto Dreams and you already know the lyrics will be on point. expect a classic people.

    • theCool

      To reiterate, I'm sure you've heard Nas' Illmatic album, and Wayne is really helping Tech N9ne's Strange Music Industry get pushed in the public eye so nothin but love on that and regardless of my previous statement, I am fuckin crazy-excited about a Common album, Nas album, and a Common/Nas album.

    • theCool

      I agree to an extent homie. I like Nas flows over phat beats, but if he "came out of his element" entirely then it wouldn't be representing the Nas that real Nasir Jones fans love so much. Though with Common also throwin' down flows, I can see how this one could be a killer fucking album if it had Drama type production. Your name suggests the only reason you even heard Nas (Not hating on ya, it just seems your into more mainstream type songs thats all) was because he was on the Carter IV, which was a horrible record, that's all I'll say on that.

  • Young Champ

    Looking forward to a new Common album, as well as a collab effort with Nas. Common is one of the last true Mc's left. Yes his style varies at time but he somehow remains true to himself. As for him leaving Good Music label, I wonder how that decision came about cuz him and kanye have great chemistry. Kanye still has Pusha T, Big Sean, Cyhi da prynce and Kid cudi. btw i got a feeling Cudi will be jumping ship soon to. All the people giving hate to Nas. SHUT UP, The man has 3 classics under his belt: Illmatic,ItWasWritten,and Stillmatic. Even Iam and Streets disciple are better than most albums nowadays. He's a Legend Period. Ya'll probably listen to French Montana Gucci Mane and Yo gotti and Rocko Aka Wack people. Holla at me when u Put some Kendrick lamar, Wale, J.cole, Pac Div, and Big krit in your Life Aka Real Hip Hop. Peace

    bad idea common is to intelligent for nas. Nas is always acting if he's educated but says things which are not true historically Get off nas dick. dude had 2 albums which were dope! and always wack beats yes the illmatic beats were also boring with exception of a few

      u stupid bitch. alexander the great shot the nose off the phinx. go get a history book

    • Broward County

      I can't believe that after all this time, somebody FINALLY agrees with what I've been saying for years: Nas drops historically inaccurate "knowledge" in his rhymes, and people praise him for it. Like when he said Alexander the Great shot the nose off The Sphinx... Alexander the Great didn't even have cannon! Nas is cool. But because there are so few real MC's who are relevant these days, he gets elevated to a level of a Chuck D, or KRS One, or Tupac, and he's SO NOT THERE!!!

    As much as I'd like the Nas (Dot) Com project to materialize, I can't see it comin' to fruition. In the meantime, let's hope Necro releases his ish with G. Rap soon.

    Well as Nas says you can hate him forever. You know hater deserves job too.

    It's desperate to see all these Nas haters, who spending bad times hearing Nas' evaluation as "GOAT" while their favorite rappers never get credit because of lameness.

    I hope Common leaves that dumb idea alone and surrounds himself with someone who fits him and is worthy of his talent. Nas' incoherent, nursery-rhymed and complete lack of good wordplay shit-talking on Ghetto Dreams was enough.

      @ bronxnite dont talk shit i listen rap since 1986 so what the fuck are you talking. dont teach me! Nas is a contradicted rapper who says today money isnt important and the next day money is my bitch it was written isnt a classic dumbass. back in 1996 the fans were disappointed that he became some fake ass mafiadon instread of following the illmatic way. but you dont know that because because you werent born then.

      Exactly. Dude got deserved hate for years, because he dropped nothing but gimmick marketed garbage, drops a few mediocre albums, fails at selling out and gets called GOAT out of nowhere. LOL. Nas is a slim version of Rick Ross, I have been saying that for years.

      LOL. Nas & AZ don't have chemistry. A collabo album of them would be whack as fuck, because it would sound fucking forced the whole way through. Nobody cares about that. An album like that would be dope if it was released 1997.

    This album (if anything like ghetto dreams) will be critically acclaimed as an amazing album, but since most kids sleep on real rappers and bump that other bullshit, it will never get proper publicity or recognition.

      I guess Collabo albums are trending, with the state of music sales and record label budgets its a way to capitalize on budgets and fanbases. But collabos been going on for a minute Mos and Kweli Red and Meth Has, Foxy and AZ Freeway and Jake One JDilla and Madlib Madlib and Kweli jayz and Kelly The list goes on now a lot of them are independan, cuz it cut costs and capitalizes resources...more major mc's are now just using an indepent model with the state of the business
