Common Plans to Drop The Dreamer/The Believer Follow-Up in January 2013

Now that the crew’s long-awaited Cruel Summer album has arrived, Common is ready to walk the solo road once again, announcing plans to release his 10th studio album at the top of next year.

Speaking with MTV News recently, while promoting the G.O.O.D. Music release, Com revealed the plan as well as hoping to bring some of his clique members in for the ride. “I am writing a new album. It will be coming out in January, and I’m looking forward to that,” the Chicago MC unveiled. “My stuff will come at the top of the year maybe some songs out there on the street level, I’m going to work with No I.D. and looking to hopefully work with Kanye [West] and that’s some of the major people I’ll be working with, and whatever other great talents that I feel are going that direction that I want the album to be.”

Also speaking on his G.O.O.D. team’s first collective project, Cruel Summer, Common discussed being inspired by his fellow teammates and being around such diversity. “You get inspired. It’s competition you’re around artists that have such diverse qualities. Because when you have Pusha T, 2 Chainz, and Kid Cudi, you have John Legend, you got Common, you have Big Sean, you got Kanye West, all these different people rapping about different things.”

The Chi-Town vet’s last studio album The Dreamer/The Believer released in December 2011, debuting at No. 18 on the Billboard 200 with 69,000 units sold its first week. —Ralph Bristout (@XXLRalph)
