Common puts on for his city in his video “Kingdom” featuring XXL Freshman Vince Staples. The video is nearly eight minutes long and directed by Hype Williams. Common’s 10th album Nobody’s Smiling is set to debut on July 22.
“We came up with this concept Nobody Smiling [and it] was really a thought that came about because of all the violence that was going on in Chicago,” said Common of the follow-up to 2011′s The Dreamer/The Believer.
