Chicago’s resident do-it-all rapper, Common, created from a place of heartfelt honest for much of his lengthy career. A series of singles preceded his 10th studio album, Nobody’s Smiling, and while those releases wavered in quality, anticipation for his full length sustained (“Kingdom” is one of the best songs of 2014 thus far, after all). The album has hit stores and digital/streaming platforms today–good news for us hopefuls praying for a quality release, one that might be Common’s last.
At 13 tracks, the Def Jam project’s features range from wordsmith phenom Vince Staples to lackluster singer Jhene Aiko. We’ll hold off on passing extensive judgement for now; expect to see our review of the LP tomorrow.
We recommend you head to Amazon and purchase Nobody’s Smiling, which you can stream below.
