After alluding to having some tracks ready and waiting in the wings, Black Thought shared a new song called “Making a Murderer” last week via Ambrosia for Heads. The recording features New York rapper Styles P with production by 9th Wonder. The Philadelphia native underlines his status as a premiere MC over a chaotic bed of horn and percussive samples, name dropping everyone from Cecil B DeMille to Mario Batali.

Black Thought will perform with his Legendary Crew at The Roots Picnic on June 4th at Festival Pier; tickets and information can be found here. Listen to “Making a Murderer” below.
