Common Talks MCing, Battling Kanye West + More – ’16 Bars’ Presented by Honda [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

For 20 years plus, Common has built a reputation as one of the best all-around MCs in the game.

For the latest installment of our ’16 Bars’ series, presented by Honda, the Chicago rapper sat down with us to talk about his approach to writing rhymes and to shed some light on what he thinks makes an MC great. From freestyling off the top of the head to what keeps him inspired and even battling Kanye West back in the days, he gets down to it all.

Watch Common wax philosophical about, well, waxing poetic in the video above and check out the bonus video below to find out how an MC of his caliber stays lyrically fit in the midst of all of today’s stiff competition.
