Common Spits 8-Minute Freestyle Over Raekwon's "Incarcerated Scarfaces" & Group Home's "Livin Proof"

Truly a transcendent genius in the culture of hip-hop freestyle, the incomparable Common made his return to the LIFTOFF show with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk to cement another historical Power 106 L.A. Leakers moment.

Taking the latest Freestyle installment #119 to a new height, the veteran emcee flexes his off-the-top prowess over not one, but two instrumentals for a nearly eight-minute offering. The Chicago native spit complete precision over Group Home's "Livin' Proof," which is a DJ Premier classic, and wrapped up the feature with additional bars on the RZA-produced "Incarcerated Scarfaces" from Raekwon.

During his freestyle, the freestyle King leaves no moment unturned with every bar dropped, spitting, "Some of my guys move keys like Robert Glasper / They gave me room so I could be a master / My book of life, I write it like a Christ chapter / When hip-hop was dead, I met it in the life after / Envisionin' the hereafter, listening to Donnie Hatha / Tryna find a way to get my people out the trap or the prisons."

Common later comes back for round two when he sets complete fire off when he flips up his flow to remind everyone why there's no one touching his skill.

Kaepernick of this rap sh*t, you see I ain't playing with these goofy a** rappers
I do movies, I know actors,
It's all on your face, you ain't never been proactive
This is pro-Black hood, wrapped in black woods
Yeah, we stack good and still show Black love like Barack and Michelle
I'm like an electric car, out of my shell, I plot and prevail
Pushing these bars like I got out of jail
