War – Common: Song of the Day 1/8

To outsiders Chicago is the land of deep dish pizza, the Cubs, and Mike Ditka. However, for a man like Common who grew up in Chi-city the violent reality of his beloved hometown is clearly evident. So much so that he is calling the situation a “War”.

The first single from his newly released 10th studio album, Nobody’s Smiling, “War” is the poignant, socially conscious track which has become synonymous with Common. With so much violence is Chicago, Common compares the city to the death and distraction happening in the Middle East over No I.D.’s militaristic production.

Listen to “War” below.
