Common Says Kanye West Is Still His Brother

It’s still all G.O.O.D.

Though Kanye West doesn’t appear on Common’s The Dreamer/The Believer, Com tells that he and Yeezy are still close friends.

“It’s just on Warner,” Com says regarding his new LP. “It’s on my own imprint as far as Think Common, yes, but I’m still G.O.O.D. Music-affiliated. That’s my family no matter what. Business-wise we just didn’t do the G.O.O.D. Music thing, but ‘Ye is my brother for good.”

Common’s last three albums, 2005′s Be, 2007′s Finding Forever and 2008′s Universal Mind Control, were all released via West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint and featured production and guest appearances from ‘Ye. Com also appeared in the G.O.O.D. Music cypher at the BET Hip Hop Awards as recently as last year.

Com’s ninth album, The Dreamer/The Believer—entirely produced by longtime collaborator No I.D.—is set to hit stores December 20. —Carl Chery (@cchery)
