The Roots speak on how they met up and growing experiences for this Vevo interview and Black Thought shares some real talk on his real life high school struggles; being kicked out of Philadelphia’s High School for Creative & Performing Arts, getting caught up in selling drugs while back in his neighborhood school and the intervention from a family-member (“my uncle comes and just snatches me up from on the street”) the he calls a life-saver. And you know Thought is really from a rough neighborhood because to get him away from negative influences, his family packed him off to DETROIT. (I can say that, because I am from Detroit. You cannot make jokes like that.) Pretty deep; recommended viewing and really makes you understand the impetus behind Thought’s own work with trouble youth.
