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.”

J. PERIOD FEAT. BLACK THOUGHT, PHAROAHE MONCH, POSDNUOS & JOSS STONE- RISE UP

J. Period gathers Black Thought, Posdnuos, Pharoahe Monch and the voice of Joss Stone for the politically charged “Rise Up!”

“These are turbulent times in America, with protests and marches spilling out into the streets in record numbers, and activism on the rise,” J. Period told Rolling Stone, who premiered the single. “‘Rise Up’ was born out of that same energy,” continuing that the song “aims to remind us of the higher ideals we’re fighting for when we call for justice: unity, equality, diversity, empathy.”

PRHYME FEAT. BLACK THOUGHT – WISHIN’ 2

Black Thought was originally supposed to be on the PRhyme album but the unexpected death of The Roots’ manager caused the emcee to not make the album. However, with the deluxe version of the album dropping, Black Thought ends up on the remix to “Wishin'” and replaces Common with a disgustingly ill verse. If you haven’t ordered the album by now, what are you waiting for?
