Black Thought – State Prisoner

When it comes to lyrical prowess and penmanship, few come close to Philly rapper Black Thought. The lead MC of The Roots, Black Thought aka Tariq Trotter is one of the most prolific and celebrated artists for quite some time now. Apart from his exceptional ear and superb delivery, it’s his thought-provoking and poignant storytelling that truly sets him apart from his contemporaries. Over the years, Black Thought (along with The Roots), has shared a number of EPs in the form of ‘Streams of Thought, Vol. 1 ‘ and ‘Streams of Thought, Vol. 2’, not to mention his incredible debut full length album ‘Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cane & Abel ’ which dropped earlier this year.

Dropping by the COLORS stage, Black Thought treats us to a powerful and unquestionably timely rendition of ‘State Prisoner’, a standout from ‘Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cane & Abel ’. Soundtracked by an anthemic beat that wonderfully emphasises the gravity of Trotter’s sharp and direct words, ‘State Prisoner’ sees Black Thought at his very best, maneuvering the Sean C-penned soundscape with a presence and passion unlike anything we’ve seen thus far. Experience the performance of ‘State Prisoner’ up top and don’t forget to give ‘Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cane & Abel’ a spin too if you haven’t already done so.
