It’s not uncommon for Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show guests to engage in fun games and segments. Friday night, Common took on a, well, not as common one: Wheel of Freestyle.

The actor and rapper joined the late night host for the game in which a random word generator spits out three words for the contestant to work into a freestyle rap.

Despite the first round holding the tricky combo of “blender,” “snowplow,” and “Keanu,” Common doesn’t hesitate to throw his skills on the stage. With QuestLove providing a beat, Common provides a full rap, taking on each word one at a time. “Comm says right now I’m like a sinner / Mix me up y’all / You can put me in a blender.”

Even with the tricky “snowplow,” the rapper gets creative, pronouncing the word a tad different to rhyme with “flow” and “Chicago.” “I gotta run with a different type of style, a different type of flow / I’m from Chicago, yo I got the snowplow.”

Before long he also fits in the formal name, giving a nod to Keanu Reeves and his most iconic performance. “You all know Keanu from what: The Matrix?”

Watch the entire clip below to see him take on a new set of words in round two.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
