Black Thought Performs A New Verse With Statik Selektah & Melts The Mic (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Black Thought is one of Hip-Hop’s consummate showmen. Flip on the TV five nights a week, attend a Roots Picnic, or search the web, and it’s well documented. As if Tariq Trotter does not already work hard enough, the Philadelphia MC swung through Statik Selektah’s Blue Note show in New York City. There, Black Thought rocked 2013’s “Bird’s Eye View” with poise and passion.

Black Thought treats his Extended Play guest shot like it was one of his Grammy pieces. Statik and the band move to “The Imperial,” another Thought and Statik collabo (2014’s What Goes Around). As his verse winds down, Thought goes off the rails with some new material, freaking the Funk before a live audience.

On Friday, Statik released “But You Don’t Hear Me Tho,” his new single featuring The LOX and James Mtume. That cut will belong to Statik’s upcoming new album, 8.

Talib Kweli is currently underway with a Blue Note residency saluting Quality. There are also upcoming live band shows including Cormega, Stetsasonic, and O.C.
