Published Jul 08, 2014Later this month, Common will release his album-length No I.D. collaboration Nobody Smiling. We've already heard a handful of samples from the release, and now we get another taste of the recording sessions with "Diamonds."
The track sees Common team up with his fellow G.O.O.D. Music associate Big Sean, who offers a half-sung chorus atop the song's organ-and-handclap heavy beat. Of course, as always, it's Common's lyricism that's the real star of the show.
Check out "Diamonds" below. The song is available as a free download for those who pre-order the LP.
Nobody Smiling will be out on July 22 through Def Jam.
