Good to see two MC's that had a beef at one time come together to produce good music. Check out the video for Ice Cube & Common's new song from their upcoming movie Barbershop: The Next Cut!
Common breakdances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon with The Roots backing him. Even without the cardboard he was able to bust a couple signature Bboy moves including the swipe.
The goal of this project is to take a bunch of verses from different artists and try to craft an album as if they were all in the studio working together. Volume one focuses in on Mos Def, Common and Black Thought, 3 legendary emcees from Brooklyn, Chicago, and Philadelphia respectively.
"Adrenaline" - track 6 from the 10-track album:

If you’re a fan of Common, then by now you''ll most likely have noticed there is a pattern with him and his work: He''ll put out maybe one or two quality, dope albums in a row, then get comfortable and try to branch out a bit and do something experimental, then after an overall lukewarm reception from the fans, goes right back in and cranks out another gem to make up for the last one. The Dreamer, The Believer is the fruits of his labor after the experiment, and true to the pattern he has established for himself, it is indeed a gem.
