Black Thought is the definition of underrated. For nearly 30 years, the Philly emcee has consistently made great music in Hip Hop with his band, The Roots. Last year he teased his fans by hinting about the chances of finally dropping his debut album.
Just a few months ago Statik Selektah dropped Black Thought’s “Couldn’t Tell”. Joined by Styles P, The two emcees play the roles as lyrical killers on “Making A Murderer,” produced by 9th Wonder. Black Thought goes American Psycho with bars like
“Out of space the place that I’m parking in/My marketing when you the see the sky darkening/ Rhyme artisan from the crew that’s bipartisan/Hi hater the 5th grader you’re not smarter than/ Alpha and Omega you Betas I march harder than”
On working with the underground legends, 9th Wonder said “We had been going back and forth for a while about it…..so we decided to just do music. No haggle, no hassle, just to do some music. Beats and rhymes…..that’s it. Doing what we love. I’m honored, for real.”
