Common & Pete Rock Announce Album Release Date & Drop New Single

by UNN Feed

Common and Pete Rock have been hyping up their joint project for quite some time, and fans now know exactly when it’s coming.

On Tuesday (June 11), the Chicago MC took to Instagram and shared the cover art for The Auditorium Vol. 1. In it, the two Hip Hop veterans can be see walking outside Brooklyn’s landmark Kings Theatre.

The duo also shared that the LP is set to drop across streaming platforms on July 12 and will be available to purchase on CD, vinyl and cassette.

“For me, this all started with A Dream,” the Be rapper wrote. “A Dream to let the world know I’ve been here. A dream to be a part of Hip Hop.

I’ve been Dreamin’ my whole life.

“I am super geeked and supremely grateful to announce our New Album – The Auditorium Vol. 1 dropping July 12. I have to say, the love you all have been showing has been INCREDIBLE.
