Black Thought & Madlib Reportedly Working On New Collab

Black Thought and Madlib are cooking up something special.

While appearing on a recent episode of Questlove’s podcast—Black Thought revealed that he’s working on new music with Madlib after the producer sent him over 100 beats.

“I got a batch of joints from Madlib, for example. Like, maybe two to three weeks ago he hit me, he was like, ‘Yo, Monday, I’ma start bombarding you with joints.'” He continued, “Boom, Monday rolls around, he sends me like 100 beats. And then I got the beats, I narrowed it down to like 18 and I started vibing to those joints. But you know, it’s exciting now for me to come home and dig through that collection.”

The Roots lyricist went on to say that he later flew to Los Angeles to spend time in the studio with Madlib, further building the excitement for whatever may come from those sessions.

The respective legends have collaborated several times in the past, the most recent of which arrived last year when Black Thought appeared on the track “Frequency” from Black Star’s No Fear of Time album, produced entirely by Madlib.

Black Thought also appeared on Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s 2019 collab album Bandana.
