Common is poised for a big summer. On July 22 he will release his album, Nobody's Smiling, which will be his first under the Def Jam Records imprint. Before the album, Common delivers the video for his new single, "Kingdom," featuring Vince Staples. Neither Common nor Vince are in the video, but it does drive a very emotional message about Common's hometown of Chicago.

Watch the Hype Williams-directed video above.
