Truthfully I wanna rhyme like common sense
Next best thing I do a record with Common Sense

from Talib Kweli (Ft. Anthony Hamilton & Common) – Ghetto Show Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In a play on words, he is stating that he wants to rhyme using common sense, but he’s also referring to the fact that he’s doing this song with the rapper Common (previously referred to as Common Sense).

Also a continuation of the previous rhyming style mimicking Jay-Z on Moment of Clarity, where Jigga raps “Truthfully I want to rhyme like Common Sense, but I did 5, I aint rhymed like Common since”.
