Video: FSD Interviews Common

After almost four years, I was finally able to interview one of my all time favorite emcees: Common Sense. I’ve been following his career for nearly 20 years and although we’ve crossed paths numerous times, I’ve never had a chance to sit down and chat with him. So luckily before taking the stage at his One Day It’ll All Make Sense book release party (hosted by Moet Rose) he granted us an amazing interview.

Common goes into great detail about his upcoming album, The Dreamer, The Believer (dropping November 22), and explains just how excited he is to be reunited with No I.D., who handled all production duties on the project. Rash promises that more leaks from the album are on the way, and the next single will be “Blue Sky.” He says this is quite possibly the best music he’s ever created and the chemistry with No I.D. is better than ever.

Com also hints that a full length project with Nas is on the way. He champions Nas as his all time favorite MC, and likens their collaborative work to that of John Coltrane and Miles Davis. Nas and Com have some records in the stash, so one can only hope we hear these sooner than later.

Common even comments on “I Used To Love H.E.R.” being named the number one Chicago rap song of all time, and was thrilled with the honor. Be sure to pick up One Day It’ll All Make Sense, which is available now.
