Common follows news of his forthcoming Nobody’s Smiling LP with a taste of what he and No I.D. have been up to in the studio as of late. The result is “War” – a hard-hitting track that tears through the tragedies, socio-economic issues, sub-cultures and storied streets of Chicago to deliver a rough-hewn manifesto addressing the city’s ills and any assertions that Common couldn’t bring the get-busy back. The upcoming project produced by No I.D. is reportedly based upon the state of affairs in Chiraq and the city’s dire need for a reduction in violent crime. Common hopes to affect change in his hometown with this release. If “War” is any indication, this will likely be an album marked by impassioned lyricism and tough production that finds Com getting right to the heart of the matter.
