The Dreamer, The Believer, Common

With his focus on his now well-established acting career, Common's first album in three years could've turned out one of two ways: rusty and out of practice or, hopefully, chomping-at-the-bit hungry. Luckily, it's no doubt the latter, with a back-in-form Com reconnecting with his old co-defendant No I.D. for an album of dusty, early-'90s-inflected meat-and-potatoes hip-hop.
