VIDEO: Big Pun f/ Black Thought “Super Lyrical”
Vodpod videos no longer available.
A few years back I asked Black Thought—for the Roots cover story on the left, try to find it, it’s good—why he had so few collaborations with other MCs outside of the Roots camp. His answer:
“It’s cause people are scared to rock with me on their joints, I don’t know. You only going to work with motherf**ker’s that you know… It’s very rare…there is a couple of rare occasions where you just reach out to somebody you have no existing relationship with already to get them on a record but that’s not really how I tend to work. Yeah, a lot of people are scared and over the years it’s, ‘Why I’ma put somebody else on my record that’s so spectactular? It might sound mediocre.'”—Black Thought
What’s ill is that the Roots frontman somehow manage to sound humble while giving that answer. Anyway, the late great Big Pun wasn’t scared. Props to 2DopeBoyz.
