Well, we didn't really see this one coming, but it's all the more dope because of it! Common is working on his new album which is centered about the violence in Chicago, titled Nobody's Smiling, and he's already dropped one leak off it, "War."
Today he returns with a fellow lyricist, Ab-Soul, at his side, and more production from No I.D. for "Made In Black America", which we assume will also live on the album. The LA Leakers premiered the new cut, and the rapper himself will be joining the Leakers on Power 106 tonight at 9PM if you're interested.
What do you think of this collaboration? Are you looking forward to Nobody's Smiling? The album is entirely produced by No I.D.
The essence of the herbs
The presence of the words
Yeah you got a chest
But I'm treasuring your curves
You walk past, I'ma look behind you
Look you up and down to find you
Cause see I was designed to
Give you power and refine you
You fucking with me we can grind to
Better black America
I'm the Morpheus in this hip-hop matrix
Exposing fake shit
Used to borrow dollars
Now my cents ain't so common
Went across the whole nation screaming 'HiiPower'
Never been a racist
But I love horse power, I'm hot
That's why I got the fans in the stands
Infants googling, enemies shaking hands
Restoring the balance
Detouring the malice
We kill you motherfuckers with a mallet
