I first heard Logic a while back when my brother in law let me hear Young Sinatra III where he uses Miilkbone’s Keep it Real beat. I wasn’t blown away really because that beat was rocked so well by Miilkbone, Jay-Z, and Big L. Somethings should be left untouched.
With that said, I just heard this “America” joint and Logic is definitely growing on me. Anyone who can get Black Thought, Chuck D, and NO ID to come out of retirement (from rhyming) definitely deserves to be listened to. Check it out for yourself. Bless.
David Banner should have learned something from Action Bronson, Royce, Raekwon, and Joey Bada$$. That is not to rhyme on the same track as Black Thought. Don’t get me wrong, David Banner is dope. I’m just saying it’s difficult to share a mic with Tariq. Who want it!
“Rise Up!” is from the EP of the same name dropping May 2nd.
“Mad Nice” is a previously unreleased bonus track from the new METALFACE Records reissue of ‘The Mouse & The Mask’ dropping May 5th.
Circa 2002. My favorite track from Talib Kweli’s album, ‘Quality’, available via Rawkus Entertainment LLC.
Talib Kweli ft Black Thought & Pharoahe Monch – Guerrilla Monsoon Rap
Phoniks is back with another dope remix!
Inspired by Black Thought’s Harvard freestyle, Rediculus creates a smooth remix.
Just one of these names gets my attention, but all three is a home run!
Black Thought ft Styles P – Making A Murderer
LA The Darkman links up with Black Thought on this one for his new EP ‘La Luminati’ which is out now.
L.A.D. ft Black Thought – Rap Poloticians
When I heard the Black Thought version of Wishin, the first person I thought of was DJ Smu and if he could drop Black’s verse on the original. Through the magic of editing, Smu did just that! This right here is so dope. Peep it.
Statik just let this one slide from his Lucky 7 cutting room floor sessions. An extremely laid back Black Thought drops one more verse in the solid arsenal of classics he hold under his belt. Tapping into his storytelling capabilities, he takes you on a detailed 3 minute journey that you are sure to love.
What do you think about when you hear the word “Philly”? Most likely you would say “Cheese Steaks”, “Eagles”, or “Rocky”. If you’re a Hip Hop fan, you would most definitely say “The Roots”. The legendary Roots crew has been holding down Philadelphia and Hip Hop for over two decades now. Their frontman, Black Thought, is the lyrical force behind the group and he is known for destroying microphones and embarrassing other emcees who dare to share a track with him.
This here is a collection of Black Thoughts illest verses as put together by @Mills_7thBoro. Make sure you tweet him and let him know how thankful you are for this goodness! No mixing….no annoying DJ dropping his name every thirty seconds…..just lyrics! Peace.
