Common’s album may have been pushed back, but here’s something to fill the gap a little.
The Dreamer, The Believer was moved back to December 20th but DJ Soul in collaboration with Okayplayer have presented this mixtape, Time Travelin’ : Best of Common, to remind us of all the great work that Common has done to date.
Apparently, DJ Soul was asked to put this together a few years ago, so it concentrates on his older stuff, but still, it’s all banging!
