Common & No I.D. x Vince Staples x Hype Williams = Kingdom.
From the forthcoming album Nobody’s Smiling, Common and fellow Chi-town legend and frequent collaborator No I.D. have linked up to address the growing violence in their native city. “Kingdom” is the epitome of the project. The video directed by Hype Williams fits the theme perfectly. July 22nd is the launch date for the project and it cannot come soon enough. Props to Vince Staples who holds his own in the company of veterans.
Common and No I.D. link up with Cali again. This time they call upon newcomer Vince Staples on “Kingdom”, the latest release from Nobody’s Smiling. Recorded as a call to action against the violence that is ripping through their hometown, Chicago, Nobody’s Smiling, is shaping up to be one heck of an album. Vince steps in on the third verse and rips it to shreds. With No I.D. in classic form this track has the feel of Like Water For Chocolate. This is the reason I refuse to listen to the Common has fallen off chatter ‘Ye of little faith participate in every so often.
Chicago natives Common and No I.D. are taking it back to the Chi. They are working on a new project which will be dedicated to the modern day war that is being waged on the Chicago streets. Nobody Smiling will be completely produced by No I.D., raps provided by Lonnie Lynn.
Typical underwhelming Nasir, to me anyway….I don’t need to explain myself….. however No ID makes this a little more worth while and made me post it……
