The Detroit native jumped onto his Twitter and Instagram pages to push Common’s latest solo offering.

“Grab @common album Nobody’s Smiling today! I’m going in on ‘Diamonds’ video just dropped –>… http://instagram.com/p/q4uauZD2ul/,” Sean tweeted July 25. (Big Sean’s Twitter)

Common and Sean’s new “Diamonds” music video premiered online a few days ago.

Currently in the midst of a promotional blitz for his new album, Nobody’s Smiling, Common drops off a visual for his album’s Big Sean collaboration, “Diamonds.” The visual is a monochromatic, minimal offering from the veteran lyricist, and features the figures of Common and Big Sean rapping over a white backdrop as images of cities are filtered through their silhouettes.
