Been one heck of a year for G.O.O.D. Music. Not only did Detroit spitter Big Sean drop a successful debut album, but you had Kanye West co-star in the epic Watch the Throne disc and Pusha T shine on the mixtape circuit. Yep, all that's missing is a release from G.O.O.D. artist Common. Wait -- what? Common's no longer rockin' with GM?
With one of the strongest spitters on Yeez's team gone what does the future look like for G.O.O.D?
Common has announced that his upcoming album, The Dreamer, The Believer, will not be released through G.O.O.D. Music. In an interview conducted with Hard Knock TV, the Chicago MC made clear that his lengthy stretch with Kanye West's imprint, which commenced with the release of Be in 2005, has come to an end. "I'm still G.O.O.D. Music-affiliated, for sure... I'm still part of the G.O.O.D. Music family, [but] it's not coming out through GO.O.D Music, the label," Common reassured fans, before going on to discuss how No I.D. is to take on the primary production duties on his ninth album, just as he did in the early stages of his career.

So what's the story behind Common's departure? Was Yeezy mad at the brother for writing a book?
D*mn Yeezy, what's wrong with a brother penning a little narrative between albums?
Oh. Okay. I get it, calm down.Well, maybe it was Common's new show on AMC called Hell on Wheels ... at one point Yeezy was trying to get a show of his own on the air.
Maybe. Maybe not. Either way Com says that its still all love between he and the G.O.O.D. fam and even promises listeners they'll be getting a Common/Nas album very soon.
SOHH Watcha Think -- Will Yeezy's empire still shine without Com and how would a collabo album with him and Nas sound?
