Black Thought have been teasing his forthcoming project titled “Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cane and Abel,” scheduled to hit all major streaming platforms on July 31.
Today (Sunday 12), The Roots‘ MC and lyrical icon comes through with the first track off the solo LP titled ‘Thought Vs Everybody’ and it sets the path for an interesting album.
“They asked why I seem so solemn / On the throne between three stone columns / Y’all know the name, fuckin’ up the game, no condoms / Everybody goddamn first world problem / The truth is inconvenient as non-believers / Fearing DACA dreamers instead of FEMA.” Black Thought raps on the song which has just one verse.
“Between heaven and Satan, while I’m steady creatin’ / And try to separate the truth from the lies that they told us / I even heard the Soviet’s, the 45th POTUS / That ain’t the photo they showed us, or acceptin’ the onus.” He raps on another part.
