Common is gearing up to drop his album, Nobody's Smiling, on July 22. Today, he released the artwork for the project, along with a video explaining the concept behind it, as well. He enlisted Chicago newcomers Lil Herb, King L, Dreezy, and Lil Bibby for multiple covers of the project.

“We came up with this concept Nobody’s Smiling [and it] was really a thought that came about because of all the violence that was going on in Chicago,” Common said.
