What You'll Get


The Deal

The Roots

  • Who’s in the band: Black Thought on the mic and ?uestlove on drums, backed by “Captain” Kirk Douglas on guitar, Damon “Tuba Gooding Jr.” Bryson on assorted brass, Mark Kelley on bass, Kamal Gray on keys, and F. Knuckles Walker on percussion
  • Aliases: The Square Roots, the Fifth Dynasty, that band that’s on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
  • Latest album: 2014’s …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, a concept that AllMusic.com describes as “an examination of self-destructive cycles”
  • Before that: 2013’s Wise Up Ghost and Other Songs, a collaboration with Elvis Costello
  • Number of Grammys won: four
  • Black Thought’s five hottest MCs of all time: Kool G Rap, Rakim, Chuck D, KRS-One, and Big Daddy Kane, all of whom you can hear in his flow, which alternates between liqueur-smooth poetry and a righteously angry bark. He even imitated Big Daddy Kane for a verse on 2004’s “Boom!”
