New Music: Common – ‘Speak My Piece’

Common talks sense on his latest song “Speak My Piece,” which samples a line from the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize.”

Over the tinkering beat, the Chi-town MC shouts out his “pride and joy” (his daughter Omoye), Kanye (“My ni**a from back in the day”), and his city (“Lay it down for the world / For Chicago I stand”).

His album Nobody’s Smiling is due July 22 featuring appearances from Big Sean, Jhené Aiko, Cocaine 80s, Lil Herb, Vince Staples, and more.
