You'll never look at the word "snowplow" the same again.

Common has been in the rap game over 2 decades, so it's tough to present the Chicago emcee with a challenge at this point. The Black America Again rapper stopped by Jimmy Fallon's show yesterday, where he was presented with a few words to freestyle with, going head-to-head against The Roots' frontman, Tariq Trotter, better known as Black Thought.

Common was given the words blender, snowplow, and Keanu, and naturally, he got through them without breaking a sweat, though he did take some creative liberties when it came to the "snowplow" rhyme scheme. Only a seasoned rapper like Common to make such a word rhyme with "Chicago," but that he did, pronouncing the word as "snau-ploe." Strangely enough, no one mentions his switch-up.

Watch the full clip above, and listen to Common's excellent 2016 project Black America Again, here.
