Common Talks “Nobody Smiling” And Delivers On 5 Fingers of Death Freestyle

You’re going to see a lot more Common in the next few days since he’s going to promote Nobody Smiling, which drops tomorrow (July 22). The Chicago rapper stopped by Sway in the Morning on the show’s third anniversary.

Common was down to earth as usual during his stay as the crew briefly ran through a few small stories (where Common revealed he had once shot the fair one with his friend), talked about about his Drake beef over Serena Williams (Common said it was more about disrespect than Drake being with Williams) and hosted the main event: The 5 Fingers of Death freestyle.

Of course, Common holds himself together pretty well as he name drops Tony! Toni! Toné! (it’s an “Anniversary,” get it?) and switches up as Sway delivers topic words. Check out the clip above.
