Common paid a visit to Power 106’s L.A. Leakers in advance of his next album A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2.
The Chicago native spit an 8-minute freestyle over Group Home’s “Livin’ Proof” and Raekwon’s “Incarcerated Scarfaces.”
“Ah, the holy spirit of Chicago/Married to the game, I should’ve took the bitch to Cabo/I know, I know, like Bill Withers, feel n***as/They say stay safe but they still hit us/Feel the rivers, it’s like the ghost of Emmett Till with us,” Common rapped over “Livin’ Proof.”
Leading up to A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2, out Friday, Sept. 9, Common has released a few album cuts, including “Majesty (Where We Gonna Take It)” with PJ, “When We Move” with Black Thought and Seun Kuti, and “Imagine” with PJ.
