Common's ninth album The Dreamer/The Believer was a collaborative effort with producer No I.D., who the rapper has worked with since early in his career. Common worked with New York emcee Nas on "Ghetto Dreams," which features lyrics that some women found offensive and uncharacteristic for Common. "I was like, 'I want a b---- that look good and cook good,'" he explained. "I was just thinking about being in the 'hood… She look raw and she could cook and she could get very elegant, but at the same token she has the know-how in the street.”
