Common Never Skips A Beat On Sway’s 5 Fingers of Death (Video)

Common stops by the Shade 45 Studio to kick it with Sway Calloway and his team for the third year anniversary of their top of the morning radio syndicate. In this episode, Sway gets Common’s take on a few popular entertainment news stories, talks about his upcoming album, Nobody’s Smiling (10:00), working with No I.D. and a slew of Chicago’s rising stars, and even takes phone calls from a few eager fans (14:00).

Later in the interview and with Lupe Fiasco’s recent off the top 5 Fingers Freestyle freshly in his mind, Common reps Chicago the only way he knows how with bars of his own over five quick beats from DJ Wonder (20:30). Sway makes it a little more difficult for Common as he shouts out new topics for the rapper to take on including Astronomy, a fan shoutout, school lunch, Ramadan, new Chicago Rappers, interracial marriage and more, without ever skipping a beat. Take a look below.
