Like most MCs who are successful, Black Thought keeps things fresh outside of his main group The Roots by appearing sporadically each year as a guest on numerous tracks. With almost 20 years of music under his belt, the man has lost track of all the songs he's rapped on. This is where YOU come into play, O Nerd of Hip-Hop.
The quest? To figure create the most comprehesive list possible of all feature and solo tracks Black Thought has released since he started dropping rhymes onto wax in 1992. Once you got your list, the Philly MC wants you to compile the list into a word document and send it his way. Oh, that's not all, though. He wants proof! Every list must have an mp3 of the listed track. Sound like intern work? Well, it kind of is. Except unlike internships, the winner with the most comprehesive list of non-Roots releases by Black Thought gets the following:
* Tickets to a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with access to meet Black Thought and the rest of the band
* Sit in on a studio session with Black Thought and the Money Making Jam Boys
* Tickets and backstage to the next Roots show in your area
* Autographed Roots swag (t-shirts, CDs, Vinyl)
The contest starts today and runs until Jan. 28.
