Ball handling! #NBAAllstarNYC @espn

A video posted by Common (@common) on

Usually when rappers flex on Instagram it involves stacks of money, cars, expensive clothes, private jets, half naked women and things of that nature. Not Common. Yesterday, the Chicago MC and recent Golden Globe winner took to IG to show off his ball handling skills. From what we see in the video, he is pretty nice with it. In the short clip, the rapper is in a gym dribbling two balls at varying speeds with the ease of seasoned pro. Com might not be an actual ball player, but he did play one on TV. He portrayed an injury riddled hoop star in the 2010 romantic comedy Just Wright alongside, Queen Latifah.

In related news, Common participated in the NBA All-Star celebrity basketball game at Madison Square Garden, last night. Funnyman Kevin Hart was named the game's MVP for the fourth year in a row. The West team beat Common's East squad 59-51.

Despite the loss in the game, the Windy City MC is currently winning at life. He recently captured a Golden Globe award for his song "Glory" with John Legend. The song also garnered a Oscar nomination and will be performed by the duo at the prestigious award's ceremony.

Watch Common pat that rock, above.
