Listen: Common – Kingdom (featuring Vince Staples)

Yesterday, Common teased us with a trailer for his collaborative joint with another one of rap’s forthcoming stars – Vince Staples. The track is officially unveiled today via Common’s Soundcloud page, and clocking in at over six minutes- it’s a cracker. Featuring a beat that reminded me of Jesus Walks, it gives as a basis for Common to spit his much missed raps, Staples also makes a stellar verse around the three minute mark. According to Common’s Soundcloud page, a Hype Williams-directed music video is set to be released soon, expect Kingdom to appear on Common’s forthcoming album Nobody’s Smiling, which is yet to have an official release date. Listen to Kingdom above.
