About a year ago the L.A. Leakers put out a tweet asking who should be their next freestyle on their series and they received a response from a Hip Hop legend, Common saying “Me!” Well, the day officially came and he did not disappoint for Freestyle #081.
— COMMON (@common) August 8, 2018
The Chicago rapper chose to go in over two of his own beats with “I Used To Love H.E.R.” along with a song that is about to drop titled “Her Love” produced by J Dilla. Common went off the top with this freestyle for over 6 minutes referencing things around him in the studio. Using a play on words with “Freestyle 81” he shouts out Kobe for his legendary game back in 2006 against the Toronto Raptors where he scored 81 points which is the second highest total in NBA history. “This is the story when I get it done, I’m sorta scoring like Kobe 81.” Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk had Common’s entire discography in front of him which he grabs various CDs and raps about them during the freestyle and it is legendary!
