Common Announces New Album, Due In January 2013

Common intends to follow up "The Dreamer, The Believer" at the top of 2013.

Common has announced plans to release his upcoming tenth album in January 2013.

During an interview with MTV News to promote G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer, the Chicago, Illinois rapper revealed that he's currently writing the LP. He also plans to hit the studio with frequent collaborator No I.D., and hopes that Kanye West will join the fold for the project.

"I am writing a new album. It will be coming out in January, and I'm looking forward to that," he said. "My stuff will come at the top of the year maybe some songs out there on the street level, I'm going to work with No I.D. and looking to hopefully work with Kanye [West] and that's some of the major people I'll be working with, and whatever other great talents that I feel are going that direction that I want the album to be."

Common most recently dropped his ninth album The Dreamer, The Believer in December 2011. The LP debuted at No. 17 on the charts with 69,000 copies sold.

      common signed to one nigga (kanye) signed to other niggas (roc) and even if drake money is split 631,000 first week sells x 10 $6,310,000 (even though drake albums cost more than a measly $10 that cheap common shit cost) Drake still winning

    • Shyne's Pe'ots

      69,000 X 10= $690,000.00 dollars dickbrain. That's its first week. And that's his money,not the labels. It was co-released by Warner and HIS LABEL. Unlike some niggas whose signed to one nigga thats signed to another nigga thats signed to 3 niggas. How much is that split?

    • TheTruth

      i bet drake is reading your comment picturing his dick in ya mawf

    despite the critical acclaim The Dreamer the Believer got, I wasn't too impressed. It certainly didn't feel like a Be, or One Day It'll All Make Sense. I know you have to evolve but Com is an artist who is clearly capable of dropping multiple classic albums. Lock yourself up in the studio with Kanye and come back with another album that's gna change the game.

    • dashing

      I'm with you. The Dreamer/Believer was aight, but def didn't live up to the acclaim. I think people were just glad that it didn't sound like Universal Mind Control, which was soo bad it made Electric Circus sound dope.

  • Just Being Honest

    I really liked the The Dreamer/The Believer, shame he's not doing a second version just with No ID again. Great chemistry.

  • MMG Uncut

    Common sucks and no way he gona have a gold album like Ross.

    • Justin case

      The Dreamer/Believer shits on GFID. A true solo album. Not hiding behind a dozen fake industry forced guest appearences like all of Ross' albums. No gettin' battered on his own songs. No silly fairy tale gimmicks.

    • fukrickross

      Rick Ross is a fatass pig. And all of his music sounds exactly same.

      Preach!!!!!! i personally think the dreamer believer is 10x better then god forgives i dont

    • fuck ross

      his album might not sell as well as Ross's, but that doesn't mean the quality of music isn't 10 times better, because it is.
