written by: on November 16, 2011

After announcing a new release date last week for his upcoming album, The Dreamer/The Believer, Common keeps the ball rolling with the debut of the visuals for his newest single, “Sweet.”

The video, which premiered on Monday, was shot during a recent visit the Chicago rapper took to Haiti. We watch as Common is depicted through various areas of the country, from city streets to a lone mountain top. According to his YouTube page, “Sweet” is considered to be one of the most controversial recordings to come from the lyricist in a while. Judging by the video as well as the song itself, do you agree? Let us know in the comments!

Check out the video for “Sweet” below and make sure to be on the lookout for Common’s ninth studio album, The Dreamer/The Believer to drop on December 20th.
