Black Enterprise

Summary

Hip-Hop is often mired in negativity and often shows no signs of goodwill when it comes to the Black community. Or so we think.

 

The Roots have always been looked up to for the lack of ignorance in their music and oftentimes, Tariq Trotter, barely gets a mention when discussing prolific lyricists in Hip-Hop.

Doesn’t matter.

 

It’s what Tariq aka Black Thought does when the mic isn’t held in his hand and the band has stopped playing music, that is important to him.
