Black Thought (co-founder of The Tonight Show's in-house band The Roots) and document producer Salaam Remi served up a suave rendition of “Conception” on the late evening present on Monday (Dec. 17).
Backed by the remainder of The Roots and an orchestra together with a set of violins, cello and a harp, Black Thought showcased his solo skills as he carried out the monitor, which samples Marvin Gaye's "I Want You," and seems on his album Streams of Thought Vol. 2.
Driven by Remi's heat bass, the 47-year-old rapped, “Look/ I’m no style mannequin however/ I obtained recent for photographers/ The camo coat had the collar up/ ‘Cause my feelings was bottled up/ And although the ocean didn’t erupt/ It turned up ’til it's loud sufficient/ To simply make somethin' out of us.”
Watch Black Thought's efficiency, which earned props from Lin-Manuel Miranda and extra, beneath.
