Can Common make good music without G.O.O.D Music?

In 2011, Common left Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label and took somewhat of a hiatus from music in 2012 — only appearing the G.O.O.D Music compilation album, Cruel Summer. After dropping an EP in 2013, Common is finally ready to put out his 10th studio album and has found a new label too.

The Chicago rapper teamed up with his long-time friend and producer No I.D. for his upcoming album Nobodys Smiling and has signed to No I.D.’s label, Artium /Def Jam Recordings.

“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. I feel like a new artist because I created this album with the purpose to give back to my city and to the culture of hip hop. Def Jam is part of the foundation of hip hop and being able to work with No I.D. was returning to my foundation now with new energy and new hunger,” the Grammy-winning rapper stated in a press release.

When HipHollywood spoke to Common earlier this year, he was excited to talk about his new project saying it was, “Music that’s great for the people.”

Nobodys Smiling is set for a July 22nd release and also commemorates the 20 year anniversary of Common’s debut album, Resurrection.
