Volume-wise, 2014 has been relatively low-key for Common. From a quality standpoint? Fahgettaboutit – “War” and “Made In Black America” are a pair of walk-off home runs, and Mr. Sense is David Ortiz.

And what does Com do for his third at-bat? Depending on your personal taste for gospel backgrounds and corner-side sermons, “Kingdom” is a stand-up triple. It doesn’t spew the fire and brimstone in the same manner that the previous Nobody Smiling leaks did, but the subject matter should strike a chord for anybody wanting something more than another Migos track in their lives. And Vince Staples also adds a lot to the track, a fact that shouldn’t surprise.

Nobody Smiling‘s release date is July 22 via No ID’s Artium /Def Jam Recordings. Based on what we’ve heard thus far and the duo’s penchant for making strong music together, the album has to be considered one the most anticipated ones for the second half of 2014.
