There isn’t a smile in sight on Common‘s cover art for his upcoming album, Nobody’s Smiling, and with good reason. The violence in the Chi Town rapper’s hometown is nothing to be happy about. The windy city has already seen over one thousand shootings since the beginning of the year and Common is ready to put his music where his heart is. But while some have condemned the city’s violent new rap scene, Common is enlisting rising artists to help in his mission. The cover art for Nobody’s Smiling, features the mean-mugged profiles of acts like L.E.P. Bogus Boy’s G Count, Lil Herb and more. Flip through the pages to see each artist’s individual covers.
