Watch Black Thought Get Academic w/ The Rhymes

As the latest participant in Harvard Innovation Lab’s “Other Side” speaker series, Black Thought graced the ivy leaguers with some icy truths in the form of stone-cold bars. Sitting opposite a visibly excited host, Thought went to work, using the freestyle as vehicle for his life story, delivered with expert prose and razor-sharp awareness, even taking the opportunity to not-so-subtly inform the top-tier institution of how few black students they actually have on campus. Hard notes aside, what we really got was yet another discourse in wordplay and thoughtfulness from a man that’s always good for a mean sixteen (or more.) Watch him get busy at Harvard’s Innovation Lab down below and if you’re looking to get up, close and personal with Tariq, join him tonight at the Nitehawk Theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where he’ll be hosting a special screening of Motown’s The Last Dragon, complete with panel discussion featuring El Debarge and Taimak BKA Bruce Leroy. Finally, your adolescent dreams of shaking hands with the master and kicking a quick duet with a Debarge can all come to fruition and all under one roof. Wave if you see us.
