Review: 'Nobody's Smiling' Is Common's Best Album In Years
Cutting straight to the chase, Common, one of the Midwest’s preeminent MCs, delivers his best album in years with Nobody’s Smiling. Standing only 10 tracks deep (13 on the deluxe version), Common has delivered nothing short of a moody, meaningful tour de force that should get every rapper on his toes.

“The Neighborhood,” featuring Lil Herb and Cocaine 80s, kicks off Nobody’s Smiling mysteriously and moody. James Fauntleroy’s voic...

Dwayne Johnson was shocked when he found out what kind of hair was used to make his "Hercules" beard.

In yet another installment of Box of Lies, Jimmy and Kate tried to guess if the other was lying when they described the odd items pulled out of boxes. If that sounds easy, try to tell your opponent you have an orange hamburger with a straight face.

As he's done throughout his Tonight Show career, Jimmy knows how to get the most out of his guests and fill air time with more than simple comedic bits. He also likes to race them...
