Following the release of the film Barbershop: The Next Cut, which has made roughly $53.8 million at the box office, Common took to Twitter that he would be releasing his eleventh studio album (following 2014’s Nobody’s Smiling) sometime in the summer. So, he stopped by Sway Calloway’s Shade 45 morning show to show off some of the bars from the album.
Despite asking for a “Primo beat,” he was instead was given the instrumental for Miilkbone’s “Keep It Real” (aka, the infamous “Jay-Z and Big L” beat). On it, he previews a pair of verses from a song “Black America,” slated to land on the album.
Expect some new music from Common sooner than later.
