Common Unveils ‘Nobody’s Smiling’ Artwork

blame it on Meka June 25, 2014

After delivering a powerful music video for the Vince Staples-featured first singer/banger off his upcoming tenth album, Common debuts the covers for both the standard and deluxe edition of Nobody’s Smiling, which you can check out below.

Standard Edition

Deluxe Edition, with Lil Herb & King L

The album, which will be executive produced by No I.D., will drop July 22nd. You can pre-order now.

    Someone care to explain the delux edition cover? I’m assuming that’s not king Louie from the chi?


      watch the video b

  • Arun Gopal

    That deluxe artwork got me thinking. What would these Chiraq rappers sound like with Common? I think they could make it work.

    • Holiday Kirk

      You’re right. It wouldn’t be easy but it’s the combinations that seem difficult and wrong that make the best results.

  • Well..
    At least he true to the album title, I guess.
    I wish this shit was produced exclusively by No I.D. instead of him just being an executive producer. Common+No I.D. is guaranteed top notch material.
    Hell, anyone and No I.D. means good shit. No I.D. is the only reason why Big Sean’s debut album is decent.

    • “War” and “Kingdom” were produced by No I.D.. I’m sure he handled production on the album.

      On the other hand, Big Sean is supremely wack and corny.

  • SonSon

    cannot wait..but will..

  • Common’s team always does great with the marketing campaign. Kinda geeked.

  • realtalk82

    Still listening to Dreamer and The Believer. Man Blue Sky….Classic. This looks very promising

  • Deejhay Daz-One

    Once Common represents simplicity but makes it effective

  • datbul

    That nigga damn sure ain’t smiling.

  • xpick

    hahaha im not smiling laughing this covers corny as fuck ..thats the “my son fucks more than me” face



  • Yasser Kaskas

    Beat is dope. Wonder if that’s on the album.

  • Justin Blantey

    I’ll download the regular cover for the deluxe edition on my itunes. Kinda worried about that really annoying beat playing at the end of the video. Hope that ain’t on the project.

  • NYCityKid

    clearly lil herb and that girl didn’t make it on the cover

  • Design Mongrel

    This is looking promising. Common is thinking more conceptually once again, hopefully the music comes through as well.
