I haven’t even put on my headphones – yet. Honestly, this means what I am listening to needs to be aired out in my studio (we all need a cleanse – six months left in 2018). Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe I have found the truth in the 21st century in about 17 minutes.
My head is bobbing. I can’t stop moving. I feel so proud. I feel so proud. I finally get a chance to listen to about 17 minutes of hooks _ rewind _ I will be listening to about 17 minutes of hooks about books, politics, culture, love and awareness all day.
The front lead, Black Thought, of the critically acclaimed Black Rock – Hip Hop – Poetic – Jazzy Group, The Roots, came through with bars so tight | I think I need to pen my own rhyme – pimp my own rhyme – before the week – ends.
Streams of Thought Vol. 1, Produced by 9th Wonder is the lyricist’s first [EP] solo project. Instant classic. Black Thought’s flow feels like a visceral jet/setter landing on planet Blackness; Unapologetically – aka – Wakanda!
The EP features guest appearances from Rapsody, KIRBY and Styles P, narrate prophetically on the track “Making a Murderer.” The production is amazing; each beat fits and mirrors the Philly MC’s style of rapping.
We have been blessed with greatness before summer even begins (Summer Solstice = June 21). I accept it. I want it. I need it in 17:20.
