In June Common dropped off a Daniel Caesar featured track called ‘Her Love’ which was the first single off his upcoming Let Love Have the Last Word album. Now Common is back with another single called ‘Hercules’ that features Swizz Beatz. The track has an accompanying music video with a cameo from Vince Staples too… Common expressed how the tune is just a prime example of him showing what he does best.
“This is me rapping, man. This is me talking shit, going at it just being the MC that I am,” – Common
“This album is inspired by the book, ‘Let Love Have The Last Word’ which gave me a path to write about things I had never written about before. It forced me to go deeper and because I opened up about so many things in the book, I was charged to go to raw, personal and spiritual places in the music,” – Common
The album arrives August 30th.
