Common dropped the official “Ghetto Dreams video” with Nas on the feature and I never posted it up. This is some really raw hip hop music and I’m a huge fan of this track. It’s set to be off of “The Dreamer The Believer album” which is scheduled to be released this fall through Warner Bros. Not to mention the fact that this video is really dope and I dig that everything was shot in black and white (no Mellohype). Anyways, if you cannot dig this song I honestly don’t know what to tell you other than your hip hop taste probably is misaligned from what it should be. These are two legends and lyrical heavyweights and the instrumental for this song is banging. Everything about this track is super dope and it exceeded my expectations.
Common – Ghetto Dreams Video (Offical)
For some reason I was convinced that Common would never make an album that would exceed the quality music that we all heard on “Be.” Part of the reason that I think “Be” did so damn well was because of the amazing organic production provided by Kanye West (who produced the entire thing). If Kanye would produce another Common album, I think it would be another amazing set of songs. With that said, I’m intrigued as to what he’s been up to. We all know he has the talent, the connections, and the history to drop another banging project, we’ll just have to wait to see how the full album sounds this fall when it drops. I think it’s going to be a treat for hip hop fans…. Click here to read more.. »
