Product: [The Dreamer/The Believer] x Common
Common‘s always been a cool dude to me, but I’ve never taken the time to really get into him until now. For some reason, I’ve been obsessed with album covers lately and this one struck me hard enough to make me actually want to check out the overall production. I don’t remember where or when I first saw it but, as you can see above, it’s amazing and the 12 tracks that make up this album follow suit. I previewed TD/TB earlier today and I liked what I heard. Needless to say, Common’s flow is something serious. If you know anything about his work, you know he matches a sort of old school style with strong lyrics that take it all home and actually say something. The album drops on Tuesday (Dec. 20th), but you can preorder your copy right now on iTunes. Whether you’re a huge Common fan or it’s your first time going track to track through one of his albums, The Dreamer/The Believer will have you moving your head and vibing just right. Of course, this is about buying gifts for others, so get it for a friend, but borrow it afterward!
