New Music: Black Thought feat. Styles P – ‘Making a Murderer’

No, this isn’t Netflix, but Black Thought and Styles P have teamed up for “Making a Murderer,” a new banger produced by 9th Wonder.

Over 9th’s drums, the Talented Mr. Trotter goes on a lyrical mission to dismantle, referencing everybody from Salvador Dali to John Salley and Mario Batali. Meanwhile, Ghost spits about Sun Tzu and, of course, Netflix’s documentary series “Making a Murderer.”

“We had been going back and forth for a while about it,” 9th told Ambrosia4Heads about the track. “So we decided to just do music. No haggle, no hassle, just to do some music. Beats and rhymes…That’s it. Doing what we love. I’m honored, for real.”

Yesterday, Black Thought told A4H in a separate article that he’s been working on more new music. Aside from the Hamilton mixtape, he said new music from The Roots is also on the horizon.

“Questlove and I are in a really good creative space, Roots-wise,” he said. “We’ve been working on new Roots music. We don’t have any particular concept or any particular time frame that we’re looking at but we’ve been working on new Roots music.”

Plus, he said, a new joint with Eminem will follow.

“I’ve been working a lot with 9th Wonder,” he added. “So we have quite a few songs together, one of which I think we’ll be putting out pretty soon. I think it’s probably gonna break the Internet…I’ve been working a lot with Royce [5’9]. We just put out a song a couple of days ago called ‘Rap On Steroids’ that people are kinda goin’ nuts about right now. It’s a snippet of a song that, in its entirety, will feature Royce, Eminem, and myself. Look forward to all this new stuff coming out.”
