On July 22nd, Common will release his hotly-anticipated Def Jam debut album Nobody’s Smiling. We’ve already heard the lead single “Kingdom” that featured Vince Staples, so we know this entirely No I.D.-produced album is set to be solid.
For this one, Common is most definitely wearing Chicago on his sleeve. As you can surmise from the video above, the concept for the cover came from Def Jam and was to feature different people from the Chi. Peep the standard and deluxe cover art (featuring Lil Herb and King L) below, as well as the track listing which reveals that Common is set to link up with Big Sean and Jhené Aiko.
