Black Thought

State Prisoner

Posted By on October 18, 2020

In a year where we’ve witnessed plenty of bar-heavy rappers get their shine, it was only necessary that Black Thought left his mark on 2020. Over the past few months, The Roots frontman has dished out a few tracks in anticipation of the project including the posse cut, “Good Morning” ft. Pusha T, Killer Mike, and Swizz Beatz.

Streams Of Thoughts Vol. 3 is yet another testament to the strength of Black Thought’s pen. And if Thought wasn’t in your top 5, he better be after this. Ushering in after the mellow “I’m Not Crazy (First Contact)” intro is the monstrous, “State Prisoner.” Black Thought delivers high energy on this record, effortlessly delivering punchlines and metaphors at every angle with fluidity.

Check out the record off of Black Thought’s project below.

Quotable Lyrics
I’m chasing chicken like a Chupacabra, n***a
Salute your father, I’m headed back to Wakanda
After the drama, rappers get medivac’d to the trauma
To kill a lion separated from the pride
I rule Zion, I am the most hated one alive
