More new music from Common’s upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer, and he’s come through with another definite winner right on the back of his impressive Blue Sky video.
A hard-hitting, head-nodding effort, and whilst that will surprise many in the manner the ‘grittier’ style of Ghetto Dreams did, this has a considerably darker, harder vibe. Com adopts a more aggressive style that makes for a marked departure from his lighter material over the last few years, boasting a booming production and in-your-face raps (I don’t remember the last time I heard him swear this much!) that combine for a true throwback to the hip-hop style of the early/mid 90s. Far from sweet as the title suggests, it’s a scathing, punchy track that the real hip-hop heads will undoubtedly be giving a few rotations.
