Common ft. Vince Staples - Kingdom

Posted 2 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
No I.D.
Album:

Everybody get in the car, ‘cause Common‘s taking us to church. No need to worry if you’re not rocking your Sunday best; newly-released as the lead single off the Chi-town vet’s 11th studio album, Kingdom is all about the interplay between what happens in the streets and what’s professed in the pews. Backed by No I.D.‘s gospel samples, Common and Def Jam signee Vince Staples offer a fresh perspective on 2Pac‘s famous question: is there heaven for a G? Nobody’s Smiling has yet to receive a drop date, but fans can look forward to a Hype Williams-directed video for Kingdom in the near future.

Update: We have added the Hype Williams-directed visuals for Common’s Kingdom single.
