Friday night, Nas took to Twitter to unleash "Ghetto Dreams," The No I.D.-produced collaboration track between the New York spitter and Common that we've been on the lookout for. Impatient with his track partner's apparent reluctance to drop the song so early, Nas took matters upon himself. He first called Common out on Twitter with a request, then issued an ultimatum:
