Black Thought stopped by Hot 97 in New York City yesterday and let loose a freestyle on Funkmaster Flex that left the Internet in awe.
Trying to sum up everything The Roots frontman had to say in his 10-minute verse (yes, we said 10 minutes) would be impossible.
So just watch the video and bask in the glory that is Black Thought.
That verse was just what I had to say at the moment lol.

If you’re an English teacher you should honestly just throw out your entire syllabus & spend the semester studying that Black Thought verse because he basically just wrote the modern day version of the Odyssey omg it was so good

After yesterday Black Thought is a a legit naming option for your firstborn — if only for the fact that teachers will have to call your kid Black Thought.
