Common Explains Why Kanye Didn’t Produce His New Album

Published

on

Common is finally opening up about why he left G.O.O.D. Music after having a long history of working with the label’s CEO, Kanye West.

The 42-year-old Chicago rapper just released his 10th album, Nobody’s Smiling and recently talked with MTV’s Sway about Kanye not producing on it. “I think he probably just gettin’ to hear the album ’cause I sent it to him just the other day,” Common said.

This comes as a surprise to many seeing as Kanye and Common have been very influential in each other’s development as artists and Kanye has produced some of Common’s most iconic album’s including Be and Finding Forever.

Common says that there is no bad blood between the two, but that Kanye was simply busy with other things. “Ye wasn’t really like ‘Okay, let’s go do this. Let’s go do this album.”

“It was like, ‘I’m ’bout to go do this album, ‘Ye. We friends, but if you ain’t really trying to…but if we ain’t gonna create together, it’s all good. We still brothers.’ I think his focus was somewhere else…Marriage, life, good places…I cherish our friendship more than music. I’m grateful for the music we did ’cause Be and Finding Forever was…them joints took me to another level. We grew. We got a relationship that’s stronger than that. So, if we never make music together again, as long as we bros, I’m good.”

Kanye has definitely been busy over the last year. With the release of Yeezus, a wedding and the birth of his daughter, North West, we can totally understand why he might of had too much on his plate.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
