The second single from Common’s upcoming “The Dreamer, The Believer” is the No I.D. produced “Blue Sky.”
No I.D produced most of Common’s early music when he was known as Common Sense. He’s also Kanye West’s mentor.
“It felt good to be able to reconnect with somebody [like No I.D.] who I started with,” he said. “When you hook up with No I.D. and the type of producer that he is – he can do all types of things, but I think that the best you’ll get out of us [together] is the essence of Hip Hop…it was really us being in that studio all the time. We lived in that studio because [No I.D.] had his own spot for us to record in.”
