Common kicks off ‘The Dreamer, The Believer’ album breakdown with “The Dreamer” [Video]

To promote his highly-anticipated new album The Dreamer, The Believer, Chi-town’s own Common teams up with Okayplayer for a new video series as he breaks down the whole LP, track-by-track. In the very first installment, Common talks about the first track on the project — “The Dreamer.”

Serving as the “introduction of the energy of the album,” Common explains the importance of the meaning behind the song and song title, and what inspired the lyrics in the track. The No I.D.-produced track is also described as “majestic” by Common, who also praises James Fauntleroy‘s effort on the hook.
