Black Thought has long been one of the most underrated MCs in hip-hop, deferring the spotlight of critical adoration to his more widely-known bandmate, ?uestlove. Thought deserves just as much praise, though, if not more. His lyricism is smooth, smart and witty, and his stage presence has helped make the Roots one of the most charismatic live acts in all of music. On top of that, he can also spit mad bars about Mario. Per a viewer's suggestion, the crew over at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon asked Black Thought to drop a few rhymes about our favorite plumber over in Mushroom Kingdom. Watch the video above to see what he came up with. Can we maybe get one about the Legend of Zelda next?
