Black Thought Talks Springsteen, Jail + More For 'Snap LIVE! In NYC'
Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter recently rocked the stage live in New York City for Snap Judgment's RadioLoveFest show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, presented by WNYC. His riveting solo performance is driven by an unforgettable series of experiences involving celebrity privilege, the penal system and a spur of the moment performance with Bruce Springsteen that he describes as a "career moment" for himself and The Roots. Backed by Alex Mandel and the Snap Playaz, Thought recounts a whirlwind tour that literally takes him from the top of the world to a jail cell, where he is forced to listen to an overzealous corrections officer rap his entire demo.
