Check out "War"...
In an interview with Revolt TV (which you can watch below), Common has announced his new album Nobody Smiling. It will be his tenth album and was executive produced by No I.D. It was inspired by the state of the inner cities of the US, including Chicago.
He said: "'Nobody Smiling' was really a thought that came about because of all the violence that was going on in Chicago, or that is going on. It happens in Chicago, but it's happening around the world in many ways… It's happening in the inner cities all over America. We were talking about the conditions of what's happening when I said 'Nobody Smiling,' but it's really a call to action."
He also released the first single from the album, called "War". He wrote on Twitter: "Its time to help these kids!"
