Kanye West’s longtime collaborator Common speaks up about splitting with West’s label, G.O.O.D. Music.

This makes a lot of sense considering that he hasn’t been involved with anything G.O.O.D. Music-related recently. His 2011 album The Dreamer/The Believer was released through Warner Bros. and his own label Think Common Music Inc.

Confirmed during his interview with Sway on MTV RapFix, Common explains that there’s no bad blood, insisting that ‘Ye is still “family.” The reason behind this switch, according to Common, is due to the fact that Kanye’s “focus was somewhere else.”

Check out the rest of his interview with Sway below.






  • YouKnowWhat…..

    The new album is dope, the catalog is epic….Common has had a legendary career, one of the most underrated of all time….name another rapper with three classics…

  • Carver Low

    Kanye
    Nas
    Eminem
    The Roots

    pretty good company.

  • YouKnowWhat…..

    Best of the best

  • YouKnowWhat…..

    Honestly though….I can’t even place Em or the roots in that category, both have a solid two though. Nas, Kanye, Common and Tupac are the only ones I can give 3 bonafide.

  • Ethos

    Kudi left GOOD just over a year ago. Realistically Kanye has too much going on, in his life, and in his head, to be running a label and giving other top shelf artists the attention they need.

  • Mikael

    Can you list the albums too? Like water for chocolate, Be and …?
    Not being ignorant, just curious.

  • YouKnowWhat…..

    As far as Common, yeah Like water for Chocolate(obviously), Be and even though most would say Ressurection, I say Nobody’s Smiling is a modern day classic. I can’t stop listening to it! I will list the classics I have for Nas and Ye also….Illmatic, It Was Written, Stillmatic…..College Dropout, Graduation, My Dark Twisted Fantasy…..

  • Ethos

    Gotta back Carver Low up here.

    The Roots:
    Things Fall Apart
    Phrenology
    The Tipping Point

    Eminem:
    The Slim Shady LP
    The Marshall Mathers LP
    The Eminem Show

    If you are a fan of the artists, these 6 albums are all bonafide classics IMO. The Tipping Point is one of the most consistently awesome albums front to back that I can think of.

  • @MickeyKnox

    No finding forever? Finding Forever to me is a classic, and cohesive album. Picked up where Be left off seamlessly.

  • YouKnowWhat…..

    I loved that one but it had enough skippable content to render it a bit less than classic….IMO….great album though…

  • YouKnowWhat…..

    I can only agree to disagree…first off, the two classics the roots own are Illadelph halflife and things fall apart…..easily their best work. Em’s lone classic is MMLP IMO….let me say we prolly judge classics a bit differently. Em is in my top 3 lyricists of all time, but musically his albums have a lot of skippable content….MMLP stands the test of time though….Recovery and SSLP are great though…

    Last week experience was the happiest moment of my life,i and my wife were separated for close to 3 years and ever since she left me i have always find things difficult for my self,taking care of the kids and especially my business which was going down gradually because of lack of concentration.I have always thought of getting her back but she refused because really i caused her disappearance i cheated on her often and when she could not take it she took for a divorce and after which i brought one of my girlfriend in looking forward to get married to her but not less than few weeks i noticed her ugly character and definitely such can not make a good wife i had to stay unmarried because i realized that after my wife left i could not find any woman as committed and humble as she wife was.
    To cut my story short i have gone wide in search for a powerful spell caster and i was informed by some of my friends that i should contact Priest Ajigar that he is very powerful and he can solve my problem i took his email from my him,i search his email and name on Google that same day to my surprise i saw so many persons testimonies saying that Priest Ajigar helped them to bring back their ex and also restored their broken marriages i contacted Priest Ajigar and he told me all i need to know and he ask me to give him 4 days that my wife is going to call me on phone i thought it was a joke and to my greatest surprise she really did call me, we kept on talking for like two weeks after which she came back home and said she is giving me the last chance that if she should stay with me as his wife again i should promise not to cheat on her again.I am so happy today to let the whole world know that Priest Ajigar is spell works and to all who are in search of help should contact his email:(priestajigarspells @ live . com)
