Chicago-born rapper Common stopped by SI Now on Tuesday and talked about the time he spent as a ball boy for the Chicago Bulls early in the Michael Jordan era.
Common tells how quickly the team recognized Jordan's greatness, and even reveals a side hustle attempted by selling a Michael Jordan signature to a friend that he had forged himself.
The scam did not last very long though, as Common realized too late that he had spelled Michael wrong on the counterfeit autograph.
