Yeah, it is correct! Common is gonna be droppin' a new album by early summer! He claims to be taking his music back to RAW hip-hop.
(*as reported on hiphopdx.com)
"Yeah, I’m working on The Believer right now. I’m actually working with No I.D. and Twilite Tone and Kanye West. Man, we’re looking forward to making some powerful music. It’s really in the beginning stages — the first quarter. But I plan to really focus and get it done."
When asked about his work with No I.D., Com explained why it feels right this time around.
"I feel really excited, man. We did some preliminary pre-production type stuff, and it just felt so good to be working with him. It felt like, 'Man, life is really, really good.' It’s full circle. You meet up with the person who’s partially responsible for beginning your career, and you’re like, 'Man, this is really cool — that we meet at this place in our lives and our creative journeys and we really are enthused to work with each other.'"
After Common's last release, he is ready to take it back to "raw Hip Hop," in his words.
"We know that we want to do some raw Hip Hop. That’s exactly the direction and feel we want, so that’s the basis of it. ‘Ye and I definitely know we want to do some pure Hip Hop."

Finally, here is Episode #17 in full effect! It is also a special treat for all you that enjoy the sounds of J Dilla. Why you may ask, because this episode is also a NEW mixtape that I, DJ JFresh-One, created recently. This mix is a tribute to the very talented Jay Dee aka J Dilla (R.I.P.). I titled this mixtape as “Beats, Rhymes & Donuts”. It’s over an hour long with a variety of selected tracks that were produced or performed by J Dilla. I also included remixes that were inspired from Dilla and threw in some of my own special blends.
I don’t really expect much outta this mix, because it’s just something I wanted to put together in dedication to Dilla’s work and influence. Plus, it’s a mix for all of us hip-hop fans to enjoy. It was tough to select tracks out of Dilla’s massive library, but I had to drop in a certain amount in a small timeframe.
Listen to it with pleasure in your iPod, on your box, or just cruise to it in your ride!
I will be loading up a special download soon for those that request a mixtape with songs individually tracked and in higher sound quality. For now, here it is as a podcast episode.
Thank you for all your support on The Mix Lab and keepin’ TRUE hip-hop alive! Please feel welcomed to subscribe without charge, leave comments, or even hit us up for updates at twitter.com/themixlab and myspace.com/originaljfresh

This is what Diddy had to explain during an interview with MTV: "People have figured out the formula when they make records for radio, and DJs ain't DJs no more. DJs don't break records no more. DJs don't play album cuts. DJs play what is going to move the crowd. DJs, they don't expose you to the newness. That was the DJs' thing. Hip Hop is in a recession also. It's not dead, it's definitely way better than where it was at, as far as with 'Ye, T.I. and with Jeezy. It's so much great stuff out there, the responsibility has to come with the DJs."
This dude has gone mad! Plus he is also in the making of his new album and he will have (yes another) new sound. Just as rumored about his new approach to the autotune/vocoder bandwagon, he claims to do something "new & different" from everybody else with "electro hip-hop soul." Here is another remark from this brother:
"Right now, I'm working on my record, and it'll be out in the end of summer. It's feeling good. It's different. I'm creating a new sound. It doesn't sound like anybody else's stuff out there. With that comes a risk. I'm excited about the risk. I do have a beef a little bit with the game right now. I think Hip Hop has lost its risk-taking quality. Everybody goes to the comfort zone. It doesn't have that risk anymore. You're not like, 'What is that?' when you hear that record anymore."
Well, Mr. Combs, if you happen to read this let me tell you something. I am a DJ. Not just a regular DJ, but a DJ that spins and supports the true essence of Hip-Hop. I admit that there is a lot of lazy wanna-be DJ's out there. Including wack unknown ones or popular no-skilled DJs like Khaled. A lot of DJ's are just as bad as some rappers, labels, fans, and the media. Its the whole movement of the culture period. The majority are influenced by a whole different definition of "hip-hop." BUT there is no reason to be pointing fingers at the DJs alone for the sake of where hip-hop is at right now. Business cats like yourself are the ONE of the reasons hip-hop is dying in the mainstream. You talk just like the rest of them corporate demons.
Listen, Diddy, don't overlook the real culture of hip-hop and especially don't put blame on the foundation of it all. We are supposed to move a crowd just like a REAL emcee should and expose the crowd with not just "new" music, but with real music that has a positively-moving message. Diddy invested on this mainstream radio pop culture. Puffy, if you are really gonna do something new and different, why don't you get off T-Pain's lap and spit a real song like a real MC should while a DJ is cuttin' up the breaks. If changing hip-hop back to way it is supposed to be is your concern, then REALLY do something about it. Don't jump in the bandwagon like everyone else and then claim that you are not. Plus, in my opinion, hip-hop is not better than where it was. Sorry TI, Kanye or Jeezy ain't helpin' either.
And one more thing, Puff, if there is a risk to be known then that will be actually playing one of your records. Here is a suggestion for your new album's title, Press Stop, Then Eject.
Keep it real. Hip-Hop 101. God Bless.
Tuesday, January 27, 2009
And not only share with everybody you know, but support the REAL hip-hop music that should be on the air!
Alright, stay tuned with this blog and new podcasts coming soon. Peace and God Bless.

Jay told MTV recently, "For me, the process of making an album is difficult with so many things going on. And me, I wanna make it beyond and above. I'm gonna take my time with it. I don't have any quotas, and that's a good thing. It may be too freeing. It's a good thing and a bad thing. You know, I think I need some restrictions. 'Cause if I had restrictions, I would have done it in three weeks. I would have made what I believe to be a great piece of art." Plus, not only would this album be Jigga's last on Def Jam, but would have the majority of it produced by Kanye West. Let's hope he don't put his heartbreak on the record....Jay don't need to be robotized!
Jay also mentioned about 'Ye working on some tracks for the Blueprint 3 recently. "He wanted to do a few more joints, so he kinda pushed it back. Now we're gonna go in and just work on some more records. So I got some more stuff to kill it with! I think [Jay pushed the album back because] 'Swagger' just did so incredible. We wanted to go up [and make sure] everything was on that level."
Well, we all just gotta sit back and wait for this next Jigga chapter to be released. Just keep your ears peeled and drop any info on the status in the comments.

Although, the city, enthusiasits, graf artists, and local organizations approve of this Non-crime & NOT-gang related program, a ton of neighbors are furious. Just as usual ignorant people can't accept the real essence of hip-hop culture and only criticize. It is kind of controversial within the city like how it was in the film "Style Wars".
