Common and Tariq from The Roots take turns receiving three random words they’ve never seen before and working them into a freestyle. This is amazing, Common and Tariq killed this. Just go head and press play and be amazed.
Common has released a short film called “Black America Again” produced by Ava Duvernay. The same person the produced Selma and The 13th.
With the film reaching a bit over 21 minutes, the film offers what Common says is “a meditation” on the album’s content, stitching together a set of black-and-white visual poems. Intermittently, Common pops up, rapping stripped down verses from the album on abandoned streets, accompanied by a beatboxing drummer. Check out the short film below and let us know what you think in the comments below.
