Common - Nobody's Smiling
The 2014 release of NOBODY‰۪S SMILING, executive produced by No I.D., commemorates the 20th anniversary of Common‰۪s breakthrough album Resurrection. NOBODY‰۪S SMILING is Common‰۪s first new album since 2011‰۪s The Dreamer/The Believer. Since his motion picture debut in 2006 (Smokin‰۪ Aces), Common has carved out an impressive career in more than a dozen films, including such major box office successes as American Gangster (2007), Street Kings (2008), Terminator Salvation (2009), Date Night (2010), and more. Common is also the lead co-star on AMC‰۪s post-Civil War western action series Hell On Wheels, returning for a fourth season this summer 2014. As noted on his website (http://ThinkCommon.com), the album title NOBODY‰۪S SMILING was inspired by Common‰۪s troubled hometown of Chicago, "I'm honored to team up with No I.D. and be a part of the Artium and Def Jam family. Creating this album and signing to Def Jam feels like a new beginning for me.
Deluxe version has an additional 2 tracks.
