Watch the Making of Common’s “Kingdom”

Common‘s Vince Staples-assisted cut “Kingdom” is definitely a track that deserves a deeper look. After delivering the song’s incredible Hype Williams-directed music video last week, Common returns with a behind the scenes video diving into the creation of the song. During the clip, Com discusses first finding the sample with producer No I.D., how the song relates to the current state of things in Chicago, and what Vince Staples was able to bring to the track. Watch it above, and expect to see “Kingdom” featured on Common’s forthcoming album Nobody’s Smiling which releases July 22.

This is dope. Common is a hip hop legend. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
