The Roots' Black Thought Stirs Up More Anticipation for Danger Mouse Collaboration
Published Jan 25, 2010Although nothing is quite as frustrating as the long-lost DOOM and Ghostface Killah collaborative album, Swift and Changeable, the Roots' Black Thought spread similar rumours of a collaboration with hip-hop super-producer Danger Mouse nearly four years ago, and nothing has come of it as of yet.
An XXLMag interview from 2006 said that the duo were "midway" through the making of their album, which is called Dangerous Thoughts. By now, that would mean the album has taken at least eight years to make, which would normally lead us to believe it's a lost cause, but Black Thought did mention it again in a recent video interview.
Prefix points to a minute-long video clip where Black Thought details his upcoming projects. Besides the Roots' upcoming How I Got Over, he also mentions a series of mixtapes from his Money Making Jam Boys crew and the Danger Mouse album.
He concludes the video by saying that he's "working on this joint that we gonna be performing at the Olympics next month," though it's unclear which project he is referring to. Check out the video, and start speculating, below.
