Common & No I.D.? Hell yes

  Common Sense rhyming over a No I.D. banger brings back memories of classics like "Stolen Moments", "Breaker 1/9", "I Used to Love H.E.R.", "Resurrection" and so many other gems. The two Chicago natives hasn't worked together since 1997, to my knowledge, so it was very welcome to hear them reunited again on this short but iLL new track called "Summer Madness"

The song is actually not taken from Com's forthcoming tenth LP "The Dreamer, The Believer" but rather from a 7-track offering called "The Pursuit EP" by a collective who calls themeselves Cocaine 80's. The big crew is lead by No I.D. and includes members like Common, Steve Wyreman, Rob Kinelski, Makeba, James Fauntleroy, Kevin Randolph and many more. The Common track is definitely the standout out the bunch however, be sure to check it out below.



  1. Why did these two stop working with each other?

  2. well they are both from Chicago, and No ID produced Com's three first albums with a little help from a few other local producers such as Twilite Tone and Dug Infinite.

    around 1998 he moved to New York and also wanted a new sound so he reached out to ?uestlove and The Soulquarian's cuz he wanted a new sound. therefore Soulquarian's and Jay Dilla produced his next two albums. after that Kanye reached out and produced the two LPs after that and then he did one with Neptunes.

    that's one thing i like about Common though, he's great at making albums cuz he always lets one producer or a production team do the bulk of the production. from what i've heard, his next LP will be fully produced by No ID, maybe with some help from Kanye. Chicago style :)

  3. Ah, I see. Thanks for the clear up.
