Watch Common & Ice Cube Perform "Real People" w/ The Roots Live on The Tonight Show
Wow, real big hip-hop moment right here. With Ice Cube and Common’s movie Barbershop: The Next Cut hitting theaters this Friday, they’re going hard on the promo trail. Two weeks ago, we got to hear these two hip-hop legends hook up for the film’s soundtrack cut, “Real People” – and now Common and Cube bring the energy right to your living room with this Tonight Show performance of the aforementioned track with some help from The Roots. Great to see these brothers aging gracefully with the music and spreading that positivity.
As if that wasn’t enough, as an added bonus Common gives us this gem. During Common’s interview with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy goads Common into showing off his well known b-boy skills, and put on a breakin’ display. The Roots set things off with the “Apache” beat and Common goes to work – watch it below.
