New Music: Common f/ John Legend – ‘The Believer’

Common and John Legend

Common keeps the dream alive on “The Believer,” another No I.D.-produced cut off his ninth album The Dreamer/The Believer (Dec. 20). The Chicago MC spits words of wisdom, while John Legend takes ‘em to church on the soulful number. “Even through the unseen, I know that God watch us/ From one King’s dream, he was able to Barack us,” raps Common. Rise up.

  2. some guy with an opinion

    That’s a really good song!


  3. He Who Knows Best

    Great song…
    BUT I was really looking forward to this sounding the way it did when he performed it in Hawaii about a year ago. I think it had a Lonnie Liston Smith sample and it gave me chills.

    Oh well.

    @He Who Knows Best, probably cost too much to clear the sample… either way GREAT FUCKING SONG!!! Lights years ahead of the BS that came out this year… MINUS the The Throne and a few others!

    Common is so raw and real. Every time he spits, it’s like I should be taking notes w/ a pen and pad like i’m in a classroom.
