One of my favorite freestyles is resonating a little more than usual today. This took place at Harvard a few years ago. The artist is Black Thought, frontman of The Roots.
My favorite part:
"Black as oblivion
Black as obsidion
Black as the sky at midnight ante meridian
Black as a portrait with Diddy, Tupac, and Biggie in
Black as the influence on the culture we livin' in
I survived the chitlin circuit, vaudvillainin
Managed to inspire the beatles and Bob Dyl' and'em
But did I miss the mark because i'm just as dark
as John Henry Clark's inner thoughts at the time of the Harlem Renaissance??"
