Recently, Common returned to the headlines. This spring, a track from Common, featuring Nas, called "Ghetto Dreams," leaked to the internet. Hip hop heads have been waiting on a collaboration between the two legendary rappers for well over a decade. During this time, Common has gone from just being a rapper to also becoming an actor.

Common is currently gearing up for his latest album, The Dreamer, The Believer. His "Blue Sky" single premiered on the radio yesterday and has been shared on the internet. Providing production on Common's latest album will be No I.D. Over the summer, he landed an executive role with Def Jam. Now, he is going back to work with Common.

Working with No I.D. for so long, Common said it is good to still work with someone like him. The reason Common said this was because he and No I.D. first entered the game together. Nearly twenty years later, Common is regarded as one of the best rappers in the game and No I.D. is regarded as one of the best producers in the game, along with being a record executive. Common said the two have always had great chemistry when they worked together.

Outside of music, Common will still be shown on the screen, this time, however, it will be the small screen. Common will have a role in the upcoming AMC series, "Hell on Wheels." The series takes place in 1865, as it is about the Transcontinential Railroad. Common said he plays the role of a freed slave in the series.
