    Common has been one of my faves since Breaker 1/9, and I happy to hear him again. I can tell he still has a passion for the music.

    It bothers me when the Gods get to acting like the broads
    Guess every team doesn't come complete with niggas like ours
    That's why I see no need to compete with niggas like y'all
    I just ask that when you see me you speak up niggas that's all
    Don't be ducking like you never wanted nothing
    It's feeling like rap change, there was a time it was rugged
    Back when if a nigga reached it was for the weapon
    Nowadays niggas reach, just to sell they record.....................

    All this praise? I think for a Common song this is garbage. Beat is weird, his flow is all of a sudden new and weird as well and it sounds like it's not in sync. Sometimes I wonder whether these comments from people that get upvotes are just all bots that care for likes, just like on instagram. Feels a lot like it though.

    Common remade this video. This actually happened in real life I saw it on Twitter. Two skater guys walk in the store to shoplift and end up thwarting a guy trying to rob the place with a shotgun. Almost shot for shot. Brilliant to borrow from real life! Commonly uncommon.

      Dale If you don’t mind may I ask who is John Wick, and what did he do as it relates to this video? I really like this video, so if he had anything to do with it he must be really talented.

    So I guess that's a black-owned store, huh? There's lots o those. I've loved this brother from day one, and still do, even if he's been playin himself in Hollywood. But WTF? When you gonna get over your Southside Chi racist bullshit playa? It wears so thin, there's so much more at stake and so much more to the picture. Not to mention you about as lightskin as it gets. Forgive this if it seems outta line, but it's how the shit make me feel. Had to be a race war. And I can't ignore how bad you styled me back in NyC in the 90s. I was just a fan a little starstruck and humbled. You coulda just smiled and even expressed thanks maybe and given a fist bump and that woulda been that. But you had to just be an ass hole. Can't believe I'm ventin this shit on YT, but I been in the hills for a minute, and now I already got started. Guess it's time for me to get back up in the mix, what's left of it. Maybe I see you in the cypher one day. I'll still be humbled, but you might see some trouble. Cuz the stone that the builder refuse....

    Is it always necessary for a Common Sense Artist to use the N word in every verse...To reference another human being or people, instead of using a decent respectful name be called.It would be Great to Hear👂🏿and artist that's not stuck on that word...Respect

    [Intro: Swizz Beatz]
    This that Common, this that Common
    But none that we do is ever that common (Let's go, woo)
    This that cold, this that cold (Woo)
    And none that we do gon' ever be normal (Let's go)

    [Verse 1: Common & Swizz Beatz]
    Free a nigga mind, free a nigga dome
    Freedom is a line (Damn), ever if it's long
    Keep it on the stones (Woo)
    Pockets full of uh
    Rocket full of uh (Damn)
    I'm cold nigga freeze like I'm 'bout to stick 'em up (Jheeze)
    I'm particular about my vernacular (Yes)
    I'm not particular 'bout what I got off in this cup
    This section man they hate us, man they say we not enough
    Uh huh, started from the bottom now we up, up, up, up (Jheeze)
    Turn a nigga up, up
    Why you tryna buck up?
    Photoshop hustler, picture gettin' touched up (Common)
    I'm a constructor of tearin' down structure
    They wanna cuff us, really it's just us
    That's why we kick dust off
    Noreaga, what? What?
    Like Jigga nigga what? What?
    Who? Who? Don't care about what other crews do
    I cruise through, crucial
    Black like voodoo, a guru of the new, new

    [Chorus: Swizz Beatz]
    They waitin' on you to come outside (Come outside)
    Just so they can downplay your life (Downplay, your life)
    But I'm never scared, I'm never scared
    Can't move me and I've been there (And I've been there)

    [Verse 2: Common & Swizz Beatz]
    Na-na-na-na now nigga now free your mind (Yeah)
    We keep e-e-e-erupting time
    Cut us we gon' bleed up divine
    Turnin' that up, we up and wine
    Click, click, click, click, we on the grind (Oh)
    Grinding, designing
    Like Virgil Abloh, we shining (Oh)
    We move mountains while climbing (Woo)
    I'm into fine things, like dining with fine things
    My dreams found wings on the back of the struggle
    Pull a back muscle, back to the hustle
    Rap for the duffle and the black couples
    That lay troubles down and let love do, it's diligence
    I'm millitant for villages, the villainous they pillage us
    But will it with the will in us? (Talk to 'em, talk to 'em, talk to 'em)

    [Chorus: Swizz Beatz]
    They waitin' on you to come outside (Outside, Goddamn, Goddamn)
    Just so they can downplay your life (Downplay, your life)
    But I'm never scared, I'm never scared (Goddamn, Goddamn)
    Can't move me and I've been there (And I've been there)

    [Verse 3: Common & Swizz Beatz]
    Ghost of the past telling me to blast
    Telling me to fast, telling me to go and whoop a nigga's ass (Oh)
    Vast is the task that grasp the mask cat
    Over the mass that dash for cash the last fast (Talk to 'em)
    Slow down, we can hold down
    The fort of profound, thoughts that go round
    The world is your town, it's my town
    It's the new wave, we on high ground, come on (Hey)

    [Outro: Swizz Beatz]
    What you just heard, was exclusive
    Common, show team
    God damn it (God damn it, God damn it)
