Black Thought Reminds Us What Hip-Hop Is

“I am a walking affirmation that imagination and focus and patience will get you closer to your aspirations.“
–Black Thought

I really need to do a post of some of the greatest lines in hip-hop. It’ll be a syllabus for the hip-hopically challenged. This would be near the top. Hell, this freestyle has more than enough for a few weeks of study. I’d also throw in –

“I’m not a businessman/I’m a business/man/Now let me handle my business/Damn”

from Jay’s verse on the “Diamonds are Forever” remix and Childish Gambino’s Hot 97 Freestyle

“They do what they can/I do what I want/Let’s move it along/the point of the song/I think he doing fine/All the time/drop a fucking bomb/ni**a Vietnam/on my mind/with my hand to God/so my hands on my fucking chest”

And that’s just recent ones some recent ones off the top of my head. People think Hip-Hop is dead or never was anything but black folks being foolish on a record. Nah, stop and listen and study it. You’d be amazed at what you’ve missed.

This right here, I will spend months deciphering. Black Though, we’re not worthy of this and yet we’re blessed to receive it!
