Black Thought shares some war stories on Desus & Mero
Legendary rapper Black Thought made his Desus & Mero debut on Monday night. The shorten six-minute interview that aired during the episode is full of great gems.
But it’s the extended 22-minute online clip where the magic happens.
Thought chopped it up on various issues: Big Pun missing the “Adrenaline” studio session because he got arrested; The Roots alleged beef with The Notorious B.I.G.; Black Thought’s time as a graffiti artist; what Thought’s favorite Roots album is; the secrets around his illustrious beard; and more.
One of the more interesting portions of the interview came near the end when the rapper talked about the unplugged album The Roots did with JAY-Z. Black Thought revealed that they were planning to do a cypher with Jay, Eminem, and Thought during the show. Unfortunately, the cypher got scrapped early in the process. Bummer.
Watch the whole interview below. It’s worth your time.
