Black Thought is the latest emcee to pay a visit to Cîroc Studios to spit a freestyle for Hot 97. This wasn’t your average delivery of bars, however, as The Roots frontman seemingly had quite a bit to get off his chest.
Over Mobb Deep’s “Burn,” Black Thought proceeded to spit bar after bar for ten straight minutes, much to the amazement of Funkmaster Flex, who basically sat their in awe. When the veteran rapper was done, Flex then implored to listeners that the performance was exactly how you unleash a freestyle, in one take no less.
To hear what all Black Thought had to say, including a slick Highsnob shoutout at 3:07, press play above.
