As we approach the release of his new album, Common has announced a deal with Def Jam for Nobody Smiling, which is scheduled to be released on July 22nd. The announcement comes as no surprise due to his relationship with co-head of A&R No I.D., who has entirely produced the Chicago emcee’s new project. As many people will know, the forthcoming LP is inspired by the trouble of his hometown, who hopes the release will give back to the culture of hip-hop for an important subject matter.
