Common enlists the rest of his Cocaine 80s collective to help collaborate on his latest track. The soulful track, produced by No I.D., is Common congratulating his friend on his marriage. As the best man, Common goes through the festivities of the day, reminiscing on the past, and holding in his introspective thoughts on the marriage and his life.
No I.D.’s collective Cocaine 80s (James Fauntleroy, Common, Steve Wyreman, Rob Kinelski, Kevin Randolph, and Makeba.) drop their latest track (number 4 since last week). Chain Glow only features James Fauntleroy’s voice out of the collective but to add a little something to the mix, long time No I.D. collaborator Nas threw in a verse.
Not really sure about that little part at the beginning of Common‘s second verse full verse, but overall Common fits really well on this track and damn that chorus by the always beautiful Colbie Caillat is catchy. Common’s definitely trying to get a more mainstream appeal and this will definitely be played on every Top 40 radio station.
You would think Drake would know not to get into a beef with an artist like Common, who would lyrically destroy him.

Hot off calling out Drake, and dropping an absolutely dope album in The Dreamer/The Believer, Common releases an alternate version of Ghetto Dreams. This one featuring 3 Common verses, and no Nas.
