The freestyle was such an unexpected but welcome surprise that social media could not help but chime in, with plenty of fans of The Roots MC speaking on the rapper’s untouchable lyrical wit.

So, in honor of Thought dropping a nine-minute freestyle and remind us all why he is considered one of the greatest to do ever do it, here are the best freestyle responses from Twitter.

A couple of months back Black Thought traded bars with Method Man on Sway in the Morning. While promoting the HBO TV series The Deuce (a show in which they both star in) the rappers ended up going back and forth for five straight minutes on the over the second portion of J.I.D’s “Never.”
