Seriously, is Black Thought the G.O.A.T.

Black Thought and Method Man appeared together on Sway In The Morning in promotion of their new HBO show, “The Deuce”. I don’t even want to describe it in great detail, because it is truly some shit you need to see for yourself. The thing I do want to talk about is Black Thought, one of the best emcees (and performers) ever!

This man never even wastes a bar. You’d be hard pressed to present more than 10 bad Black Thoughts lines. Black does two exquisite rounds in this Cypher, and not to diminish Method Man at all, but it’s truly an incredible thing to see.

Outside of the content – how dope is it to see Method Man and Black Thought cypher together on a radio show in 2017? The back and forth alone is classic material and I sincerely hope someone has a grainy home recording of the audio – a true bootleg gem…

…you know,  if bootleging was still a thing, and you had to record the radio with a tape deck and couldn’t just enter this url into one of those youtube ripping sites and then just like have the audio to do whatever you want with it…
