Posted by

NPR has adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic by presenting “at-home” editions of its Tiny Desk Concert series. Black Thought, the second artist to participate in the new makeshift version, has upped the ante by debuting three tracks as part of his set.

The Roots MC premieres “Thought Vs. Everybody,” “Yellow” and the Portugal. The Man-assisted “Nature Of The Beast” in his 17-minute performance. The veteran lyricist is joined remotely by PTM’s John Baldwin Gourley and Zoe Manville for “Nature Of The Beast.”

“Yellow” comes from Black Thought’s upcoming off-Broadway musical Black No More. The other two songs — both produced by Sean C — will appear on his Streams Of Thought Vol. 3 EP, which is due out later this year.
