I must say, I can’t wait to hear new Common music.

MTV – “For Believer, it was creating raw music, raw hip-hop,” the Chicago MC told MTV News last week. “I just wanted to create good hip-hop music. When I create albums, they develop as I go along, ’cause I have different thoughts and visions. And then as you create the music, it takes its own personality and spirit to it. But the beginning of it is raw hip-hop, it’s just soulful.”

For the project, the rapper’s ninth solo album, he’ll reunite with the sound architects behind his first three albums, No I.D. and Twilite Tone. Com said reconnecting with the pair and having Kanye West onboard as well gives the album a homecoming feel.

“Twilite Tone and No I.D., they produced my first three albums and they were the first producers I worked with,” he said. “And Kanye is an extension of them. Kanye always says No I.D. is his mentor. That’s how I met Kanye, through No I.D. So for me to have these three working on my album is going home again. But I’m always gonna offer something new and fresh.”
