Common is back at it after an interesting summer that included a much scrutinized trip to the White House. “Blue Sky,” produced by No I.D., is Chi-town rapper’s newest single to drop from his upcoming ninth studio album “The Dreamer, The Believer” (Nov. 22).
“It’s that good hip-hop, that good music,” Common tells DJ Reflex of Power 106 of “Blue Sky.” Common borrows from Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky” for his newest single. Common plans to shoot the video for “Blue Sky” in the next few days.
Aside from the airwaves, one can catch Common on the AMC 10 episode TV series, “Hell on Wheels” (Nov. 6), on which he plays a free slaved.
