MUSIC ISH: COMMON 'WAR' [NEW MUSIC] + ALBUM DETAILS


Common heads to the front lines on his new song “War.” The Chicago lyricist paints a picture of the violence in his hometown on the No I.D. production.


“To all the killas and the hundred dolla billas/ Real hittas who ain’t got no feelings,” raps Common over the marching beat.

He hopes that his “call-to-action” album, produced by No I.D., will bring about change.





The rapper-turned-actor has announced details surrounding his new album Nobody Smiling.

“2014 will be one of my greatest times in music,” Common told REVOLT. “Originally I was making an EP, but we’ve just been making a lot of songs—myself and No I.D.—and I liked the direction.”

The follow-up to 2011′s The Dreamer/The Believer will arrive later this year on the 20th anniversary of Common and No I.D.’s 1994 album Resurrection.

The title was inspired by his troubled hometown of Chicago.
“We came up with this concept Nobody Smiling [and it] was really a thought that came about because of all the violence that was going on in Chicago, or that is going on in Chicago,” he explained.
