Black Thought and producer extraordinaire 9th Wonder have announced the title for their upcoming joint project is Streams Of Thought Vol. 1. Better yet — The Roots de facto leader took to social media on Friday (May 25) to announce it’s coming out on June 1.
Details about the project are scarce but 9th will be assisted by The Soul Council production team.
The Philly native teased the project in January during an edition of Black Thought Cinema Presents in New York City.

Demand for new music from Black Thought has been feverishly high since he dropped his now legendary freestyle on Funk Flex’s Hot 97 radio show last December.
Over Mobb Deep’s beat for “The Learning (Burn),” the veteran MC rapped for 10 straight minutes and subsequently racked up nearly five million YouTube views.
