Common has released “Kingdom,” a song that features Vince Staples.

In announcing the selection, Common called it “the start of something great.” The cut was released today (May 30). 

Common spoke with HipHopDX about collaborating with Staples in 2013. “I got my man Vince Staples on a song,” Common said in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX at the time. “I like him. He’s cold on the mic. When I heard him rapping, I was like, ‘This dude can really rhyme.’ It made me want to write.”

At the time, Common also said he had songs completed for an EP and was slated to release an album at the top of 2014.
