Black Thought is a talented man. He’s the lead singer of The Roots, one of the most gifted and influential hip hop bands in music history. As lead singer of the The Roots, he’s also the main voice for Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show house band. Mr. Trotter is also capable of doing remarkable things like this:
Black Thought Hot 97 Freestyle
I’m always fascinated by people who do things I could never dream of. I would have major issues talking for 10 minutes straight, never mind creating a coherent, entertaining freestyle. In addition to the freestyle, he also somehow pulls off the fancy hat and sunglasses look. The more I think about it, I’m not sure which feat is more impressive. Those are just a few of his many talents, and 2017 was a landmark year for the artist. He and The Roots continue to thrive on The Tonight Show, and he starred as Reggie Love on season 1 of The Deuce. Tonight Show house band, lyrical genius and starring on an acclaimed HBO show is a good career for most people. That’s just a year’s work for Black Thought.
