Recommended Posts


Common gets his shine on on “Diamonds,” the latest release from his upcoming album Nobody’s Smiling. The Chicago MC grabs his G.O.O.D. Music brother Big Sean for the feel-good track, which boasts a knocking beat courtesy of No I.D.

“No matter what situation you gotta get to shining,” Common told Rap-Up TV. “I’m talking about shining for today, not waiting for tomorrow. You just gotta embody it now.”

“This record is on some newness for real now. Sean brought his own perspective and made it bounce even more and just automatically when you hear Sean on the chorus, you feel like this song could be in the club, on the radio, but it’s not reaching. I’m kicking an MC verse.”

The two recently recently shot a video in L.A. “It’s a performance-based video, but [the director] is using our images to blend into all these things that represent those shining elements,” said Common.

Nobody’s Smiling drops July 22 featuring appearances from Jhené Aiko, Cocaine 80s, Elijah Blake, and Vince Staples.
