Two hip hop masters of freestyle battled on late night TV, but this wasn’t your ordinary rap competition.

Common and Black Thought went at each other in a battle rap game on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Chicago and Philadelphia emcees played a game of “Wheel of Freestyle”. Both are lyrical beasts when it comes to rhyming off the dome, even though it was a friendly rap battle.

Common had three words to choose from “Blender,” “Snowplow” and “Keanu.” The Chicago rhymer came through with an unique flow and changed the word snowplow to “snaw plaw.” We don’t have a clue what that is, it must be a Chi-town thing.

Then Thought responded to his three words: “Blanket,” “IMAX” and “Cheeseburger.” The Roots MC deliver a fantastic rhyme scheme rapping, peep it for yourself below.
