Sorry for being late on this track, but I felt like it wasn’t a track that I could just skip. Common’s new album, The Dreamer, The Believer is shaping up to be a classic. I know it is way to early to make that conclusion, but he has delivered on every single thus far. “The Believer” features John Legend on the chorus and is produced by No ID.
