"Blue Sky"- The Dreamer, The Believer
Common's upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer which features "Blue Sky" is now scheduled for a December 20 release. The songs "Sweet," and "Ghetto Dreams" ft. Nas have been put out in promotion of the album. In addition to confirming the new release date, Common also addressed his presence on the G.O.O.D. Music Compilation and discussed his possible collaborative effort with Nas.
In my own opinion, this forthcoming Common release is his most important since 2005's Be. From everything that the Chicago-native has dropped so far, he seems to be going back to basics; no doubt caused at least partially by his re-partnering with producer No I.D. I.D. was responsible for Common's groundbreaking early work including Resurrection. A lot of Common's lyrics on these new tracks hearken back to that record, which should have any fan of thoughtful rap excited.
