Published Sep 24, 2014Coming off the summer release of Common's 10th full-length, Nobody's Smiling, the Chicago rhymer has revealed an updated version of the set's "Kingdom" that now features a guest verse from Jay Electronica.
Backed by No I.D.'s gospel choir-assisted boom bap, the remix skips to Common Sense's second verse, weighing in on a post-life journey from the streets up to the kingdom of heaven. Vince Staples' additional bars about gun violence are still grafted to the beat, while Jay Electronica now gets his two cents in by spitting about survival and having the "ill street blues," all the while throwing in a Drake diss or two.
You'll find the three hip-hop royals giving it their all down below.
