Common has returned to his Soul By The Pound days with his latest release The Dreamer, The Believer. In the weeks leading up his latest project, Common has been on promo spree including exclusive tracks, freestyles and a track-by-track video breakdown. After listening to the album, The Dreamer, The Believer i can confirm that it lives up to the hype and will be a front-runner in the Album of the Year race.
To add to the hype, Common has released a full stream of Dreamer, Believer in a move that is totally left field in the eyes of labels and other artists. It’s a risky move, but Mr. Breaker 1/9 is rolling dice on that fact that more people will pre-order the album than rip it from YouTube. My money is on Common.
