El Michels Affair & Black Thought Share “Grateful”

Cementing an undeniable union, legendary MC and The Roots Co-Founder Black Thought joins forces with acclaimed cinematic soul luminary El Michels Affair for a collaborative LP titled Glorious Game, arriving on April 14 on Big Crown Records. Pre-order and pre-save Glorious Game HERE.

To herald the arrival of the album, they just shared the first single “Grateful.” On the track, flute echoes through a head-nodding beat punctuated by shaky guitars and an eerie vocal sample. Holding nothing back, Black Thought lyrically stalks the soulful production with incisive bars. As poignant and provocative as ever, he laments, “Dale Carnegies with big dreams to get rich quick that fail horribly” before he confesses, “Never been in pursuit of the American dream.”
