Common has found a home with No I.D.’s Def Jam based label, Artium. With that done, we get a release date of July 22nd for his brand new album, Nobody’s Smiling. This will be something special.
“Common and I have a long history of making great music together. His rich legacy and robust talent are perfect additions to the Def Jam family. It’s particularly significant that he’s coming under our roof for his 10th album as a matured artist and cultural ambassador. It’s a tremendous boost for the spirit of Def Jam as well as the world of hip-hop.”
