Black Thought has been releasing recorded music since 1992 and has long since established himself as one of the most fierce and prolific emcees in history. In fact, give the man a hand. No, seriously, give him a hand, because he’s has lost track of how many features and solo joints the emcee’s had a hand in and needs your help.
We’ve partnered with Black Thought & Okayplayer for a unique contest. The challenge will be for fans to compile the most comprehensive list of Black Thought features and solo tracks for a chance to win one (or a combination of) the following prizes:
— Tickets to a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with access to meet Black Thought and the rest of the band behind-the-scenes.
— The chance to sit in on a studio session with Black Thought and the Money Making Jam Boys.
— Tickets and backstage to the next Roots’ show in your area.
— Autographed Roots swag including T-shirts, CDs, Vinyl.
The contest starts today, January 7th, and runs through Friday, January 28th. There are two requirements to be eligible to win. Once you feel like you have established the complete list of Black Thought features and solo, non-Roots joints, compile them in a Word or text doc in a numbered list (order does not matter). The trick is, you must also have mp3 of ALL the tracks on your list. Whoever submits the most comprehensive list will be deemed the winner but they must then send a ZIP/SIT/RAR file of all the mp3s on their list to win prizes or a new winner will be selected.
Email your submissions (lists only, no mp3) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
