Black Thought is known for rapping uninterrupted for minutes at any of The Roots‘ shows. With no help. Skipping to 2:10 into this clip is a god introduction to his lessons in breath control.
While The Roots as a group and Black Thought as an MC have yet to get the credit they deserve (but aren’t in need of), at least fello musicians recognize their genius. In this video, fellow MC Mos Def makes no secret of the fact that he’s learned all of Thought’s verse from ‘75 Bars‘ by heart.
Watching them go through it together should give all of us chills.
