Common To Work With No ID, Kanye West & Twilite Tone on Upcoming Album

Ynot + Common Sense

Today XXL confirmed what I’d long heard and (kind of) known:  that Rash was to reunite with No ID on his upcoming album, The Believer.  What I hadn’t heard, however, was that he was also returning to the lab with the one and only THE Twilite Tone.  Hey, why not? (Pow!)

This, to my knowledge, is the first time Common will receive production from Tone and Dion since One Day It’ll All Make Sense, which is my favorite Common album if you’re keeping score at home.

During the benefit show for his Common Ground Foundation over the weekend, Com told XXLMag.com that he has already recorded tracks with Kanye and No I.D. for the project, which he expects to hit stores sometime next spring.

No I.D. has been producing songs for the rapper/actor ever since Com first broke out onto the scene in 1992 with Can I Borrow A Dollar? He went on to produce the majority of Common’s next two albums: Resurrection and One Day It’ll All Make Sense.

Along with signing the fellow Chicago resident to his G.O.O.D. Music imprint, Kanye produced the bulk of Com’s highest selling album 2005’s Be, as well as 2007’s Finding Forever.

Common also said he has been in the studio with beatsmith Twilight Tone, who he hasn’t worked with since his debut.

For shits and giggles (Whatever happened to Chantay Savage?)
