Common on Friday dropped off his 14th studio album, A Beautiful Revolution (Pt 2).

The record arrives with 11 tracks, boasting features from Black Thought, PJ, Jessica Care Moore, Seun Kuti, Marcus King, Isaiah Shakey, Brittany Howard and Morgan Parker. The album follows A Beautiful Revolution (Pt. 1), a nine-track project that Common released last year as part of a larger effort to instill optimism in the disenfranchised with uplifting messaging.

A Beautiful Revolution (Pt. 2) was created with hope and inspiration in mind,” the Chicago rapper said in a statement. “The spirit of the album was meant to emulate what a greater day would sound and feel like. We were in the midst of some tough political and socially challenging times. There was still hurt, anger and pain lingering, so I was thinking, ‘what is the next step in this revolution?’”

“I thought about what being still in these times had brought me and that was a peace beyond understanding, a greater love for self, a closer connection with God, and more appreciation for my family, friends and the simple things in life,” he added.

Stream A Beautiful Revolution Pt.2 on Spotify and Apple Music below. Vinyl and CD formats will arrive on December 10 and you can pre-order them here.
