    always something special with that guy.

  • poetic assasin

    Black Thought- never a wack verse. Ever.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    That’s real hip-hop but real is dead.

    • yo

      how is rreal dead explain that shit to me

      • el jim chapo guzman

        Where you been at Pelican Bay State Prison 23 and 1 everyday no tv. Name 5 mainstream rappers that’s spitting on them niggas level.

  • yo

    two royce verses in one day … shiiit

    Black Thought essentially entered a cheat code. As good as Bronson and Royce are they aren’t as good as Thought and his verse essentially being half of the song only magnifies how unfair it is. Black Thought is one of the greatest of all time. The Roots catalog proves that and is as good and consistent of a discography you’ll find in all of hip-hop.

      he def was the closer. i always respected thought’s spit, but i also felt he was a bit monotone.

  • Black Thought is highly underrated. He really SHITS on a lot of rappers quietly.
    “Triple ent-andres, 3 stack of Hey Ya.” Nigga. Shut up.

    Salute to that man. #TIMELESS

    Black Thought changed up the flow like Nas when he was talking about Nas, “I had a issue wit a hater now its kinda squashed..” HARD AS FUCK read between the lines

  • PsyFi

    Matter fact he was dissin Nas the whole verse, “I’m the NASTIEST to do it” then he cut off Nas name the line after

  • “You might say I am in the book of Isaiah”…Black Thought murked!

  • Dashing28

    Wow. On the real Black Thought SPAZZED on this shit. Obliterated Action and Royce, two dope-ass emcees.

    Hearing shit like this reminds me why I disagree with all the critics about the Roots last couple of Roots albums. Musically, I guess they’re interesting, but there aint enough straight hip hop on them. And BARS. Especially when they got a nigga like Black Thought in the wings. It’s like only putting in Durant for ponly a quarter. I don’t get it.

    Anyway, this shit is fire.
