Produced entirely by Dion “No I.D.” Wilson, “The Dreamer/The Believer” is in many ways a homecoming for Common. Wilson also produced the majority of “Resurrection” and “One Day It’ll All Make Sense”—Common’s second and third albums, widely regarded as two of his best—so rekindling the working relationship is an obvious first step towards assuring fans that Common hasn’t gone Hollywood. Having crafted mega-hits for Kanye West and Jay-Z, Wilson s still a relevant producer in the modern age, however, so the two were able to create an album that pulled from the best of the early 90s and add it to the best of today.
