Black Thought Performs ‘The Imperial’ at ’16 Bars LIVE’ Presented by Honda
We're used to seeing him perform with his band The Roots, but all Black Thought really needs to rock the crowd is one mic (and a great DJ by the name of J Period). Need proof? Just watch Tariq Trotter rip through his performance of 'The Imperial' at our 16 Bars LIVE event a few months back.
Thought goes in over a sample of James Brown's 'The Payback' for a verse then goes a capella to further establish his MC supremacy, laying claim to a spot in everyone's top five MC list. Watch The Roots MC do his thing in the video above.
