For his latest album, The Dreamer, The Believer, Common has gone all out. Hip hop heads wished, for years, to hear Common and Nas on the same track. The two made this happen with their collaboration, "Ghetto Dreams." Their track will be a part of the upcoming album.
Fans were excited about the collaboration between Common and Nas, but it has nothing on his next collaboration. Known as a rapper who talks about the issues, Common is all about raising awareness. Despite being a rapper, many classify his music as poetry.
Several Common fans consider him a poet and he is giving those fans a treat. Common has recruited the legendary poet, Maya Angelou, for his new album. He met Maya Angelou at a benefit he was doing for a foundation. Common said meeting Angelou was incredible. The poet who was supposed to come to the benefit did not show up, so his team contacted Maya Angelou and she agreed to do it, since then she and Common have been friends.
