"The rapping is muscular, self-assured and occasionally even startling, as in the offbeat accents during a stretch of Hustle Harder."
- The New York Times

"... Common's verbose verses dovetailing nicely with productions that are at times more like techno than hip-hop ... Common has crafted one of the best hip-hop albums of the year so far."
- The Guardian

Nobody's Smiling, the 2014 release from two-time Grammy-winning rapper and actor Common, is a critical look at his troubled hometown of Chicago and the violence and high crime rate ripping the city apart. He says he created the album with the purpose of giving back to his city and to the culture of hip-hop. The album marks a creative reunion between Common and his longtime friend and collaborator No I.D., producer of Common's first three albums in the 1990s. On Nobody's Smiling Common surrounds himself with young up-and-coming rappers and R&B artists such as Lil Herb and Dreezy from Chicago as well as Vince Staples from Long Beach, California.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
