BLACK THOUGHT – NOIR (PRODUCED BY ADRIAN YOUNGE)

Adrian Younge provides the musical backing for Black Thought to paint his lyricism with “Noir.”

“The obsession with race is disturbing to those that wish to divert attention away from the unyielding attributes that have plagued black America,” Younge says. “However, we all must realize how such disenfranchisement has negatively affected us all. We are all equal and we are all human; we all have something to say and something to contribute; essentially, we all deserve to be heard, recognized and respected. That being said, our celebration of Black History Month brings us closer to understanding the struggles and contributions African Americans have made in making America what it is.”

SUM FEAT. BLACK THOUGHT & LONGBEARD – BLACK FRIDAY

Los Angeles emcee Sum teams up with Black Thought for this song off his album Whatever Doesn’t Kill Me Better Keep Running that drops later this year.

“There’s not much to be said about being able to rap on a track with the great Black Thought,” he siad. “He’s a pioneer, and I’m glad he’s finally starting to get more widespread recognition as one of the nastiest to ever do it. My guy Longbeard did his thing on the music, he’s a part of the extended Milky Way tribe and you’ll hear more from him sooner than later.”
