Common continues to stay busy as we find the Chi-Town MC in Oakland, California aiding a YMCA Youth Basketball Camp. Common is no stranger to the hardwood, having played a New Jersey Nets point guard named “Scott McKnight” in the 2010 romantic comedy Just Wright.
Although Common acted as the star b-baller in the film, he found himself as the backup in this particular community service effort, as Golden State Warriors shooting guard Monta Ellis was alongside the rapper as he led the kids in drills, signed autographs, and even passed out copies of his new album, The Dreamer/The Believer.
Whether he’s performing at Sundance in Utah, both live and on film, or hosting events and meeting fans in Atlanta, Common has been in grind mode. With his latest film premiering at this year’s film festival, and his contributions to the G.O.O.D. Music Album, 2012 isn’t showing any signs of the Chi-Town spitter, slowing down at all.
