Common plans to release a new album in 2014 titled Nobody’s Smiling. The project is a followup to his 2011 disc The Dreamer, The Believer and will be executive produced by No I.D. in it’s entirety.

“2014 will one of my greatest times in music. I feel excited about the project that I’m working on. It’s called Nobody Smiling and it’s an album that originally I was making an EP but, we’ve just been making a lot of songs-myself and No I.D.-and I liked the direction.”
