  1. 0:18 personally I'd feel weird being black about to rap for a bunch of white people. it'd be like that one scene in the movie Sorry To Bother You where they make him rap at the party

  2. the guy that cut the hair of ray wimley… was he blind ?? OR is that a warning, how not to cut your own hair ??

  3. Wow, I was just watching Common's interview on CBS Sunday Morning and was thinking about him doing this freestyle segment from a few years ago.

  4. Wow 😯 I remember walking home from work and seeing Ray rap on canal street in New Orleans and now he’s rapping with Common on the Jimmy Fallon show?!?! That’s a blessing! I’m happy to see that his hard work continues to pay off!

  5. Okay, Jimmy, I am going to talk to you. I love your humor. I compare you to Lucille Ball, The Three Stooges, The Marx Bros.
    You make me laugh. And yes, I watch Stephen Colbert and Bill Mahar and I laugh but that is "thinking" laughter. Your humor is full body laughter. Laughter is healing. There is that man who wrote a book about how he healed himself from cancer by watching The Three Stooges videos. It's when your whole world is falling apart, but you make me laugh. And I am going to add Jim Carrey to the list. You sometimes do political humor but that is not your forte. Just keep doing you own special zany craziness. America needs you. You make us laugh. You heal us. Thank you.


  7. "how do you do it?"

    Gee I fucking wonder. Maybe there's a reason this is a graphic and not an a physically random device 😐

  8. These are premeditated aren't they? I mean they wouldn't take the risk of any of them just not coming up with anything and embarassing themselves would they.

  9. Yesssssssss so happy to see you in here Ray every since June 29th 2019 me meeting you in my birthday and your anniversary you have taken off. Common ran into you again a week after our meeting!!! You goons do big things!!!

  10. Freestyle music started in the 80's you can search it up in YouTube music videos like Stevie b
    Johnny o and Lisa Lisa and cult Jam sweet sensation

  11. Comme to my channel and watch a video with Actors who can ACTUALLY sing , like Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto, Ryan Reynolds and Robert Downey Jr!

  12. I will never understand how people can freestyle rap. I try that shit and it comes out cringe, out of beat, and sounds like I'm going through a stroke.

  13. I can write but I just cant freestyle. Its amazing MCs that can. I freestyled great once after a lot of tequila and a blunt.
