Black Thought Recites Poetry For Hip Hop

Turn up time.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop this August, BET partners with Black Thought, who delivers a poetry in his love letter to Hip Hop.

In the four-and-a-half-minute clip, directed by Benny Boom, the Philly wordsmith narrates a spoken word paying homage to the history, accolades and influence in the genre.

“From here, looking back / I say we did it, we made it / They hate it and said we were over and gone / I feel this is the move / They said that we prove all of them wrong / You got your money right / Mind right / We been in the limelight / It’s the joint / ‘Til you on point, all the time Phife.”
