Common Has 3 Gold Albums, And He Still Freestyles Completely Off The Top (Video)
Common Sense has three Gold albums (Like Water For Chocolate, Be, and Finding Forever). Still, the major label artist and actor holds to the Hip-Hop fundamentals of freestyling. Many Comm concerts feature a freestyle where the Chicago, Illinois MC works in local street names, restaurants, and other landmarks. He brought that same keen knowledge to the LA Leakers Show.
While it’s not his finest free’, it’s interesting to watch Common up close… between his fingers keeping the timing of his flow, to how he can look around the room and work in people, items, and ideas.
After his studio work with Ab-Soul and No I.D. earlier this week (“Made In Black America”), is Comm one of the most complete MCs in Hip-Hop today?
