In a dope interview that aired last night on Last Call with Carson Daly, Common talked about a variety of things in his vast world of music and acting. First, the new movie Luv, in which a few nice clips were played, and his role and inspiration there. Plus, his book One Day It'll All Make Sense, his response to people who don't associate hip hop and positivitity together (a smart one that cites the history of hip hop and brings it back to the present), and finally: the lead headline in the post title - his upcoming music.
Common says he's looking to release an EP associated with Luv sometime in January, and then following it up with his first ever mixtape (yup, that's right... first ever!). AND, we can expect a new album sometime in 2013. So Common's keeping things moving musically and that news alone is something I'm excited for.
This was already one of the more solid tracks from Cruel Summer to me, and I was always curious why 2 Chainz was even on the song with such a short verse. This was a good come back and 2 Chainz did his thing by himself.
I bet this is a real surprise, I have a Big Boi track in my Top 5(internet sarcasim). Once again Big Boi delivers, to bad this one didn't make the final cut, but I will be adding it to my iPod none the less.
Having Kendrick Lamar on your album has become as important to rappers as a Stove to a chef. Even though only on the hook I think most people will attract to the song because they'll see featuring Kendrick Lamar. Dope song regardless, and Scarface is still a beast even after not releasing much in the past.
