COMMON - "War" [prod. NO I.D.]

Save for the musical marvel that was Common's contribution to Robert Glasper's latest album ("I Stand Alone") not much of interest has come out of Chi-Town's finest since his full-length reunion with No I.D. on 2011's "The Dreamer/The Believer". Yesterday news stories based on an interview with Com' revealed that he's been hard at work on another LP with No I.D. set for release this year. Titled "Nobody's Smiling" the project is a call for action against the extreme violence and gun glorificiation that has plagued the the duo's hometown for the last years. 

Only 24 hours after the initial announcement and the first single is already here! Appropriately titled "War", this agressive cut sees Common constructing impeccable lyricism aimed at the heart of the problem and a hard, boom bap type of beat by No I.D. If this is what to expect from the LP, this will be truly brilliant. The Soundcloud link below offers listeners both a stream and free download so make sure to check this out!
