Common meets up with Elliott Wilson to discuss his upcoming album "Nobody's Smiling" on "The Truth."
Since its debut last August, Elliott Wilson's Life + Times series "The Truth" has produced some of the most eye-opening interviews in the hip-hop world. His latest episode has him meeting up with Common for a 20 minute plus interview that spans Common's entire career but focuses on his upcoming tenth album.
Nobody's Smiling has made headlines for its focus on Chicago's ongoing youth violence problem, and here Wilson probes Com about his decision to devote an entire album to the issue. Being the elder statesman he is, Common explains himself eloquently and voices his respect for the younger artists in his city.
Nobody's Smiling drops on July 22nd.
