Common ain’t the type to keep his mouth shut when he’s got something on his mind. (I mean, he is a rapper.) Fortunately, hip-hop fans worldwide are all too happy to listen when he puts in his two cents. On Speak My Piece, the Chicago mainstay strays from the grim subject matter of previous song release to indulge in a little braggadocio. Project collaborator No I.D. provides a chaotic, percussion-driven backdrop for his skillful stunting. Nobody’s Smiling, which will also feature previously-released single, Kingdom, is slated to drop July 22, via Def Jam. In the meantime, fans can keep it locked for more fresh singles.

Rap is young man’s game, always churning old waters for the next new thing, always feeding the bones of the previous generation to the next. So it’s no surprise that only a select few manage to build careers that last...
