Nas to Join Common and Q-Tip in Super Group?

It looks like The Standard, Common and Q-Tip’s super group, might have gotten a new all-star member.

In today’s edition of New York’s Daily News, it was revealed that the duo are interested in adding another MC to the crew and while it has not been confirmed yet, collaborator of both living legends, Nas, is most definitely interested.

Q-Tip was instrumental to Nas’s success at the beginning of his career, producing “One Love”—the fourth single off the Nasty MC’s seminal debut LP, Illmatic— and “The World is Yours (Remix).” Nasir also produced the A Tribe Called Quest documentary, Beats Rhymes and Life. Meanwhile, Com and God’s Son recently recorded “Ghetto Dreams” for the Chicago native’s last album, The Dreamer, The Believer. They’ve also both appeared on Hi-Tek’s “Music for Life” and Jadakiss’s “Why (Remix).”

Although The Standard formed in 2007, they have yet to put out any music, instead focusing on their solo material.

Com has been promoting his last record, while both Q-Tip and Nas are steady at work on their next discs.
