Common Shows Off His Breakdancing Skills, Performs “Real People” With Ice Cube
With over two decades in the game, Common is still a b-boy at heart and during a stop on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Chicago MC busted a move for the studio audience. After being asked about breakdancing at Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade’s wedding, The Roots played the break beat from the Incredible Bongo Band’s “Apache” and Com took center stage to show he’s still got it.
Common is on a heavy promo run for his film Barbershop: The Next Cut, and was joined by his co-star Ice Cube onstage for a performance of “Real People.” Showing that they’ve grown since trading barbs on “Bitch in Yoo” and “Westside Slaughterhouse,” the two show anyone can mend their differences for the greater good. The Next Cut is due out this Friday, April 15.
The “I Used to Love H.E.R.” MC isn’t the only OG who has shown he still has breakdancing chops over the last year. Back in October, Jadakiss, dressed head to toe in a navy blue sweatsuit, hopped off the bench and showed his moves. Starting off a bit slow, ‘Kiss gains composure and hits a 360-windmill backspin before posing for the camera and casually returning to his spot on the couch.
Common also has some new music in the works. He recently took to Twitter and posted a photo which shows himself and producer Karriem Riggins in the studio working on new tunes. “In the studio with @karriemriggins1 . New music coming real soon! #braceyourselves,” he captioned the pic. If you aren’t already familiar with the incredible musician that is Karriem Riggins, he recently produced “30 Hours” for Kanye West.
