Two months ago, Amazon premiered a preview of a collaboration between veteran conscious MC’s Nas and Common, which is going to appear on Common’s forthcoming ninth LP, The Dreamer, The Believer. Now, after a large public demand to hear the song in its entirety, Nas posted the track to his Twitter, which fans responded quite warmly to, and is live streaming below.
Produced by No I.D., “Ghetto Dreams” finds the two artists spitting in their rawest form, over an old school sounding beat that includes tons of record scratching. The Dreamer, The Believer is slated for a November release, Common’s first with Warner Brothers Records.
