Episode 68 - Black Thought Tribute Pt. 1 (With Black Thought)







Episode 68 is reminder to always think big. This was a long time in the making and sometimes, dreams become reality. Black Thought isn't just one of our favorites, he is arguably the greatest rapper in the game. And despite where he might be on your top list, there is no doubt that after you listen to our Black Thought Tribute, he will be bumped up in your ranking. 


A rapper of this magnitude deserves a proper tribute, which is why we're breaking this jawn up into a 2-parts. Not only do we celebrate the G.O.A.T., we got a chance to talk to him for hours, too. 

We discuss the new album Streams of Thought, Vol. 3. We discuss working with Danger Mouse and the late Kobe Bryant, as well as the upcoming musical he wrote and will be starring in titled "Black No More". We find out if there's a new Roots album on it's way, delve into some Roots stories such as Malik B, Razhel, getting signed to Geffen and what the "actual" release date was for "Do You Want More?!!!??!". We talk Philly, food, classic hip-hop and much more. This interview was more like a conversation with your favorite super hero.  Part 2 will be released shortly and the full-interview will be available on our exclusive Vevo channel.


Remember, Take It Personal Radio is available on all streaming platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Soundcloud & iHeart Radio. You can always check our past shows, stream, download, cop merch or view the playlists on Takeitpersonalradio.com.
