Rapping, making movies, starring in Western themed TV shows…in my book Common does no wrong. The more I hear from his upcoming record, Nobody Smiling, the more I get excited. Production handled by No I.D.? Common spitting relevant raps via his weathered view with an attitude like it’s 1994? Yes please.
“Made In Black America” matches Com next to Ab-Soul, and it’s pure fire. Both emcees gamble with a stream of consciousness flow, proving that even loosely constructed verses from these two basically shit on whatever you downloaded from Datpiff this afternoon. Common is coming, and he’s bringing that classic sound with him. Old heads, rejoice.
