Black Thought x The Combat Jack Show Pt. 3

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Black Thought returns for round three of his interview with The Combat Jack Show presented by Complex TV. This series of discussions with Thought could be the most revealing glimpse of his evolution as an MC to date. Thought talks battle rapping and takes it back to a few pivotal moments in his career. He cites the arrival of Nas' 1994 debut LP Illmatic as one of the first game changing events and a chance encounter with freestyle legend Supernatural as another - their meeting at a D.C. bus station would ultimately change his approach to rhyming and thus his life.
