Black Thought has been keeping fans updated on the highly-anticipated Stream Of Thought, Vol. 3 LP for months now. The Roots frontman performed "Thought Vs. Everybody" on NPR's Tiny Desk series, and the project was expected to be out this summer. The tragic death of former Roots member Malik B led to Thought delaying things, but he offered fans big news this week.
On his IG, Thought posted a video offering the details surrounding Stream...: it's dropping October 16 and he also included features.
“Thank you for your patience,” he wrote on Instagram. “The wait is over. Let’s go!”
Streams of Thought, Vol. 3 is expected to include The Last Artful Dodger, Schoolboy Q, Portugal. the Man, and C.S. Armstrong. Back in August, Black Thought dropped "Good Morning" with Pusha T and Killer Mike, which is from the project.
“On any given day, the space that I occupy in the world is somewhere between a Killer Mike and a Pusha T, between an activist and a street hero, a man of the people and a man of the streets — that’s my origin story," he told Variety. "I feel like both of their energies represent my own creative bipolarity.”
“It is a reintroduction. It speaks to an awakening," he said in August. "Plus, it’s a stellar lineup of features on one record — the level of dimension and different energy you get in one densely packed moment is unprecedented for the Roots and Black Thought up to this point. The energy of the production, whatever iconic thing it is that Swizz (Beatz) does elevating the chorus, juxtaposed with what Pusha T and Killer Mike bring to the equation… I felt as if it was a no-brainer.”
