Very dope, innovative approach taken here as Common and No I.D. interactive album track-by-track interview for Nobody’s Smiling. All you have to do is click on the track titles or sub-topics to get an in-depth explanation of the making of the album from the two people who had played the biggest part in shaping it.
Also below, a short clip where Com explains the concept behind the album cover. The use of images of Herb, King Louie, Lil Bibby, etc. were sparked by Common “feeling like it’s my time to do that” and put on for the generations of young artists who will continue to carry the torch for the ‘Go in rap.
Listen Nobody’s Smiling now on Beats Music here before the album releases at midnight, Tuesday July 22.
