BLACK THOUGHT SETS NEW RELEASE DATE FOR ‘STREAMS OF THOUGHT VOL. 3’ FEATURING KILLER MIKE, PUSHA T & SCHOOLBOY Q

Black Thought Sets New Release Date For 'Streams Of Thought Vol. 3' Featuring Killer Mike, Pusha T & ScHoolboy Q

Black Thought has unveiled a new release date for his forthcoming Streams Of Thought Vol. 3: Cane & Able project. On Tuesday (October 13), the Roots frontman shared a black-and-white Instagram video of himself writing the album details on a notebook, revealing a release date of October 16 in the process.

The post read, “Streams of Thought Vol. 3 – Cane & Able. 10-16.20 Ft. Portugal The Man, The Last Artful Dodgr, Oshun, C.S. Armstrong, Schoolboy Q, Swizz Beatz!!! Pusha T … Killer Mike!!!”

The project was originally expected to arrive on July 10 but was pushed back with no explanation. However, Thought acknowledged the delay in the caption, writing, “Thank you for your patience. The wait is over. Let’s go!”

 

During an interview with HipHopDX, Thought explained the title of the project, a reference to the Biblical story of Cain and Abel — but with a twist.

“The producer, Sean C, his last name is Cane,” he explained. “He’s quite literally Sean Cane. And me being one of the most able MCs, it’s a play on words as a nod to my ability and to him actually being Cane. And then also too, just a sign of the times, so to speak, and the original sin, I guess. It spoke to all those different things, so it made perfect sense to subtitle the album.”

The project received a 4.5 out of 5 rating from HipHopDX and proved without a doubt, “Tariq Trotter is a beast and leaving him out of any top lyricist conversations would equate to blasphemy.”
