Common: 2013 Album Preview

Steven Taylor/Warner Bros. Records
Best Bets Albums 2013, Common

Title: TBA |  Release Date: September 2013
A few weeks back Common made a stop on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and announced plans for a busy 2013: a late January EP (to accompany his new film "Luv"), his first-ever mixtape in April, and finally, his tenth studio album in September. It's a tight schedule for sure, though the venerable Chicago MC has been enjoying a promising second wind to his career as of late. His most recent album, 2011's "The Dreamer/The Believer" marked his most critically-acclaimed effort since 2005's "Be." As part of buddy Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music collective, Common's already expressed his desire to work with his longtime friend, which is not bad at all.
