The new Grammy family. This past weekend in Los Angeles, Chicago natives No ID, Common and Da Internz hit the studio to likely work on tracks from either A.) Common’s new album B.) Common’s new mixtape C.) Common’s new EP or D.) all of the above.
And as a sign of solidarity, the entire crew repped the new Internz Grammy-inspired ‘Write Ya Life’ snapback collab with Thousand MS. If you like, you can grab one here. Hit the jump for more shots. Would’ve loved to have been a fly on the wall for this session.
Produced by J. Period.
Common picks up where he left off on “I Used To Love H.E.R.” for this new joint from DJ/producer J. Period’s new project, Rage Is Back. The project drops February 12th, so definitely keep an ear out for that. Check this one out while I take some time and revisit Resurrection. Props to Billboard.
Despite conflicting reports from Q-Tip and Big Sean (both of whom said they’ve contributed to the project), tonight in an interview with Vulture, Common claimed that G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Winter is not coming out. Frowny face.
Does G.O.O.D. Music really have a Cruel Winter album coming?
Oh, yeah, nah, nah. I don’t think that’s happening. It was more of a rumor — cats been creating, but everybody’s been doing their solo album. So that’s what that is.
I’ve heard so many rumors about Cruel Winter from people who claim they’re involved and are allegedly “working on it,” and I’ve also spoken to people in the camp who say it’s not happening, so who knows what to believe. All I know is that there’s a gaggle of G.O.O.D. people in Paris right now working on something, and that something is likely Kanye’s album. Who knows.
Chicago hip hop great Common dialed in to the Morning Riot earlier today with a lot on his mind. He discussed Chief Keef’s recent arrest, how to stop violence in Chicago and how it relates to his new role in the movie LUV. He also discussed Obama’s second term in office and what he’d like to see happen during the next four years.
During a recent stop at DJ Whoo Kid’s Whoolywood Shuffle radio show, Com chopped it up with Whoo Kid about working with Kanye, his new mixtape, his upcoming acting roles and more. No I.D., Lupe Fiasco and Travi$ Scott on Com’s new mixtape? Yeah, color us interested.

If you picked up today’s Sun-Times you were sure to spot Chicago’s own Common on the cover of the weekly Splash section. In the article Com chats about the upcoming release of the indie film “Luv”, which he stars in, along with touching on topics including settling down with a family and his Common Ground Foundation.
2013 is slated to be a busy year for Common as he preps for the release of his first mixtape, a new album, and a feature film all while still filming AMC’s “Hell On Wheels.” We’ll soon find out if Comm can do it all. Check the full article here.
Com and Jhene Aiko assist Cocaine 80s on the latest drop from the forthcoming Flower Of Life EP. This joint is about as smooth as it gets. If you’re looking for the mp3, you can download it here.
Last night, Com Sense was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and was there to talk about his forthcoming movie, Luv. But also during the interview, Common declared he’s releasing three separate projects in 2013, including an EP to accompany the movie, his first ever mixtape, and an album in the fall. It’d be amazing if he pulls this off, but that sounds rather daunting. Someone hold their breath for me. *I shall remain optimistic*
Look for Common’s film Luv, and the Luv EP due out by the end of this month.
Roc Nation/Artium recording artist Elijah Blake is ready to drop a project of his own after killing hooks for a few of favorite artists and drops the first offering today. This record, entitled “XOX”, features Common and it’s more than dope. Bijoux 22 coming soon.
