Video: Common – “Ghetto Dreams (feat. Nas)”

Director Matt Alonzo gives Common‘s “Ghetto Dreams (feat. Nas)” the video treatment, releasing the official video earlier today. One of my favorite collaborations this year that doesn’t involve Kanye West or Jay-Z, this track has me really excited for Common’s The Dreamer, The Believer, out November 22. The black-and-white clip above really does the song justice, depicting the street life and ambitions of the two rappers. Bria Myles stars, as does Rick Ross‘s beard. You can purchase “Ghetto Dreams” on iTunes now.
