Black Thought Discusses The Freestyle That Broke The Internet This Week

first_imgRegardless of all that racket, the linguistic ability, overall command of the English language, and social, political, historical and pop culture references that Trotter was able to put together in the moment is beyond impressive, and shows such a high intellect that would put most people to shame. Fact.Check out the freestyle below and the interview with Fallon, and tell us how you rate the performance.[via HOT 97]Black Thought On Jimmy Fallon:[via The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon] In what will easily go down as the best freestyle of 2017, and arguably of all-time in hip-hop history, The Roots’ Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter took a seat on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to discuss his 10-minute session on Funkmaster Flex‘s HOT 97 radio program where he dropped straight, non-stop bars to the beat of Mobb Deep‘s “The Learning (Burn)” from the Queensbridge group’s 2001 Infamy album. He also explained the early beginnings of the group, and meeting drummer Questlove in school.Video of the performance has been trending on social media, with many fans and fellow artists dubbing it the greatest freestyle of all-time, giving further evidence to the ongoing debate of Black Thought’s G.O.A.T. status. The Philly MC tweeted about the freestyle, “That verse was just what I had to say at the moment.” Conversely (and not surprisingly), it has also incited comments from some race trolls thinking “black thought” was a type of philosophy and/or campaign, clearly showing their ignorance and unfamiliarity with the hip-hop legend. Never a dull moment with morons, is there?last_img read more

ND club begins quesadilla sales

first_imgWhile many students looking for an inexpensive, late-night snack head to The Huddle for Midnight Dogs, they can now find another option in a rather unlikely place — the Knights of Columbus building on South Quad. Sophomores Patrick Adams and Bobby Thompson, both officers in Notre Dame’s Knights of Columbus Council 1477, originally had the idea to sell quesadillas out of the building last year. After a lengthy approval process through the Student Activities Office (SAO), “Dollar Dillaz” will officially open for business Thursday night. “We submitted an SAO request and it took a while to get the food permit,” Adams said. “But everything worked out.” Adams said they have done trial runs just within the Council during the last two weeks and have received an overall positive response. “Once we expand it to everyone else, we want it to catch on,” he said. Thompson said he hopes the quesadilla sales will increase the visibility of the Knights of Columbus on campus. “We want to make more use of the building for the community and for charity,” he said. “I think we come across as being relatively aloof or secluded, and we’re trying to break that exclusive image.” While “Dollar Dillaz” currently features only cheese quesadillas, Thompson said he hopes to eventually expand to have a full Mexican menu. “The only thing really lacking on campus is Mexican food,” he said. “Most people don’t want to drive to Taco Bell, so that was our motivation behind it.” Adams said SAO only gave the Knights of Columbus approval to sell quesadillas one night during the week. After spring break, SAO will review the operation and consider expanding it, he said. “Dollar Dillaz” will be open every Thursday night from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Proceeds from the Knights of Columbus quesadilla sales will be donated to charity.last_img read more
