During a convo with MTV, Common reveals that he is currently working on his 10th studio album and is looking at a January release.
I am writing a new album. It will be coming out in January, and I'm looking forward to that. My stuff will come at the top of the year maybe some songs out there on the street level, I'm going to work with No I.D. and looking to hopefully work with Kanye [West] and that's some of the major people I'll be working with, and whatever other great talents that I feel are going that direction that I want the album to be.
He also speaks on the Cruel Summer compilation and the possibility of a G.O.O.D. Music tour.
