Take It Personal Podcast "Black Thought Episode"

Episode 68 of the Take It Personal podcast is a reminder to always think big. 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 TIP's Black Thought Tribute, he will be bumped up in your ranking. A rapper of this magnitude deserves a proper tribute, which is why they've broken this tribute up into 2-parts. Along with the tribute mix is a great interview where they discuss the new album Streams of Thought, Vol. 3, working with Danger Mouse; 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?!!!??!". They talk Philly, food, classic hip-hop and much more. This interview was more like a conversation with your favorite super hero. Listen to Part 1 below, and stay tuned for more. (Updated: audio for Part 1 died, so I updated it with a Mixcloud link, and also added Part 2 below.)
