Common Speaks On Conception Of "Sweet," G.O.O.D. Music Compilation

The Chicago, Illinois native says the concept for his latest track came from the sample.

Last night, Common dropped off “Sweet,” a No I.D.-produced cut off his upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer. During an interview with, Com recalled first hearing the beat and explained that a sample on the track helped him come up with the concept for the track.

“The beat was already hard and I was listening to the sample talking about, ‘Sweet, you look so sweet.’ I was like, the only way I can use this is if I talk about niggas that’s out there that look sweet,” he said.

He also touched on the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation, which Kanye West announced via his Twitter page a few weeks back. While he hasn’t yet contributed to the LP, he’s confident he’ll appear on the album.

“We had talked about it before, but it was actually some new news to me that it was going forward. But I’m definitely looking forward to it and I obviously want to be a part of it. I’m G.O.O.D. Music family forever. Even though my album is not coming out on G.O.O.D. Music, I’m still a G.O.O.D. Music affiliate and artist. That’s my family forever.”

    • Sean O'Loughlin

      WTF you talkin' 'bout you ignorant ass nigga? Man, I swear ever since Hov and Wayne had that so-called "beef", everybody gets all hyped up whenever Hov spits something or some random other artist spits something. THERE ARE NO DISSES, PEOPLE! Guys are just rapping. Plus, Common is apart of G.O.O.D. Music, which is Kanye's label, so you know they have close connections with Hov. I swear what people be commenting about on these blogs and shit are ridiculous. SMH.

      what makes u think he was going at jay-z when common is G.O.O.D music family?



  • fuckallyall

    Common is a joke to hiphop and rap really... he is a legend but he seemed to have wanted to personify ridiculousness when he decided to go all M.O.P and adopt some really nonauthenic aggressive way of rapping... come on common... You + DBlock attitude is just simply ... not credible AND stupid. Rap and Hollywood are NOT completely the same. There are limits to the roles you can embody as a rapper without looking like you are trying too hard to come accross a certain way... common is soft. and he knows that. he is the personfication of a sweet mofo and here he is all buffed up and acting all 730 and shit... comeon... made me sick... and mind you i have every com album since the first. I accept everything except for this strange attempt to pretend YEAH I'M AN ACTOR SO EVERYTHING IS A ROLE... well yeah.... who am i to say dont go there... true... i am just saying... it makes you look stupid and contrived in the artform you blossomed with so bro... listen to the little man in your head who has been telling you that this "persona" you embodied on this track is really really fake and stupid. You actually are sort of portraying the bitch in yourself com... thats why i couldnt believe this when i heard it. You do not have to do it this way to come hard. This is what you've proven all these years and now you come like this? Just plain stupid. unbelievable... what the fuck for anyway?

    • Chi Representer

      @fuckallyall, you obviously are not from Chicago and don't know shit about Com Sense, he is the furthest from soft and it definetly ain't sweet up in these Chitown streets, which is where he is from, he represents Chicago to the fullest, therefore the CHI reps him, he is most definetly a STREET nigga and even if he wasn't nigga's in the Chi will ride for him from the MOES(Stones), to the GD'z(Gangsta Disciples) to the BD'z(Black Disciples) on down to the 4CH'(Four Corner Hustlas), so watch your mouth muthafucka, cause get caught in the Chi slippin talkin that soft shit see what happen to you!!! That's all I'm able to say!!!

    • VB
