This is definitely good news. While in our recent review of Big Sean’s Finally Famous, we posed the question, “what if these (No I.D.) beats were given to Common?” As it turns out, Common will reunite with his longtime collaborator for The Dreamer, The Believer, as No I.D. will produce the entire thing, MTV reports:

“That was the first song we did for the album,” Common told MTV News. “No ID said, ‘I got something for you.’ He played that beat, I was like, ‘Oh, sh–.’ I kind of hopped into it, like a zone, a character almost [while] writing it. It was just so raw, something like ’95, but new sounding. Then he put up this Nas vocal [sample] going, ‘Ghetto dreams,’ and then I was like, ‘Oh sh–.’ “

Nas heard an early version of the track and immediately wanted to jump on the song. According to Common, No ID and Nas were in the studio recording together when the producer played the Queensbridge MC the record. “Once Nas heard that — No ID played it for them ’cause they was working — and Nas was like, ‘I’ll get on that,’ ” Common said. “And Nas is my favorite MC, so that was a blessing.”

    Maybe he will redeem himself after completely selling out. He would have a lot of explaining to do.
