Common‘s been around for a long time, but don’t count him out. He’s sounding as good as ever with this latest off of The Dreamer, The Believer, out December 20th.¬†Over the years, Common has become a staple of the entertainment biz. You can catch him on TV talk shows smiling and enjoying casual conversation, and he always seems like such a pleasant guy. He even lent his voice for a part in Happy Feet 2. Don’t get it twisted, though–Common hasn’t lost his edge. “Sweet” isn’t what you’d expect if you were judging this one based on the title.

The video was shot in Haiti, and Common premiered it last night on Ustream by asking viewers to donate $1, with all proceeds going to Haitian relief efforts. Today the video hit YouTube.
