As far back as 2007, Common and Q-Tip had hinted about forming a supergroup dubbed The Standard, with plans to release a Q-Tip-produced full-length. But after years of focusing on their respective solo careers, it appears the duo is back on track to get in the studio together.

“I brought up Q-Tip because we talked yesterday about doing some great music and forming our group ‘The Standard,” tweeted Common of the album, which was originally set to include contributions from Kanye West.

In the meantime, Common is working on his upcoming ninth album ‘The Believer,’ a departure from the dance-oriented ‘Universal Mind Control.’ The album will feature production from Kanye, No I.D. and Twilight Tone. “Right now I’m the only one featured on it,” he told The BoomBox in June. “It’s still in the beginning stages.”

Q-Tip put out his sophomore album ‘The Renaissaince’ in 2008, recently wrapping up a tour with his former group A Tribe Called Quest as headliners on this year’s Rock the Bells tour.
