Common teased us about this collaboration with rising rapper from Long Beach, California, Vince Staples, the other day with the release of a video trailer. Today Com returns with the full record, which is the third release thus far off the G.O.O.D. rapper's upcoming album Nobody's Smiling. So far we've received the Ab-Soul-featured "Made In Black America" as well as "War."Â Â
No I.D. on the boards again, as he will produce all of Nobody's Smiling. The triumphant beat for "Kingdom" is filled with layered vocals, while Common once again relays a socially conscious message.
Stay tuned for the Hype Williams-directed music video, coming soon.
My money ain't straight, my fam ain't straight
Ain't wanna push keys, heaven couldn't wait
I was hurtin', couldn't get no work
You created me from dust, that's why I did dirt
You said that the last shall be first
Now I'm in a hearse, what's this cash really worth?
