Hip-Hop Nation Freestyle :: Black Thought of The Roots

Black Thought

I love The Roots, but I need to see a Black Thought solo LP, EP, mixtape, something in the near future.  And before you call his work with The Roots the equivalent of him being a solo MC, consider how dope it would be to hear him just doing a completely off-the-reservation project with producers like Madlib, Alchemist, Ski, Large Professor, etc.  The thing is, Thought is easily one of the best MCs, dead or alive, in terms of skill but I’d be interested in seeing what he creates on his own as well as what he contributes to The Roots because there’s clearly a different kind of shine when he’s just rhyming as opposed to sticking to a concept and sharing the billing with his band.

  1. I agree completely. The little quickies he dropped on the Tony Touch and Statik Selektah compilations last year made me wish I could just hear him, and nothing else.
