Common’s Nobody’s Smiling is soon to be released. “The Neighborhood” follows a familiar series of Common tropes: poems about his romance with the ghetto, fables about street heroes and villains, an R&B singer in the mix. This is a terrific indication that Rashid is back to his roots as the capital-C Conscious rapper, and will save the truly sweet stuff for the next project.
Louie and Herb rep the east side of the Chi in a doom-filled visual for “Eastside Sh*t,” which will live on King L’s upcoming Drilluminati sequel.
Lil Herb hangs on the block and drops a new clip for “Control Me,” directed by HiDef. Herb’s Welcome To Fazoland: The Movie project is on the way.
