392 Horseplay : I keep coming back to “watch” & “listen” to a true M.C. at work. Black Thought slices through this beat with precision like a samurai at battle! I keep asking myself 3 questions. 1.How did he do this? 2. How did he do this?? 3. How did he do this??? And my man went in so hard that he started sweating while sitting down slaying the beat! Cats stand, run, and dance on stand stage with nursery rhymes and still don’t sweat like this! 🐐

George Bonis : Dude broke a sweat trying to restore a lot of people's faith in the rap scene. Well done.

chris melendez : I actually feel sorry for thought. Being stuck here on Earth with us mortals must suck.

Michael Young : Been playing this daily since December. People dont understand...1) hes been this nice since day 1. 2) to even memorize something this lengthy would still have 99.9%stutter, slip or forget. 3) his breath control is UNREAL. no gasping or drawing for air that was louder than his words. 4) it's just plain dope and a story from beginning to end. The subtle and direct disses are smooth and effortless. " how much more cb4 can we afford" nuff said

Ms. Woodard : Felt like i had a whole conversation but i didn't get a chance to say nothing 🔥

Dramasquared : This why I can't listen to todays top 40 hip hop. When you come from the era of mic dominance, similies & metaphors, multiple rhymes within the same bar, and catchy hooks you dismiss the bulk of garbage that sells today. Thank you Black Thought for repping hip hop's heyday. Long live The Roots!

BW 5000 : Best Funk Flex freestyle ever!

Marlon Contreras : Ok... This is easily my 20th time watching this since it dropped last year. It’s safe to say that Black Thought is not human. In fact, he was sent here to Earth by his father Jor-El from the planet Krypton as a beacon of hope for all humanity... WOOOOOOWWWW! #Top5DeadOrAlive

NIMMHATV Rap Beats : Thought, i always KNEW you are is was and will be one of the best ever to bless the mic and bless hip-hop! He doesnt only have the SKILLS he also brings up the 5th element while spitting, spitting pure WISDOM/KNOWLEDGE while dropping bars that make you friggle up youre face or be like WHAAAT or just laugh. If y'all people EVER get to go to a ROOTS show, DO IT! I heard they are one of the best live bands that hip-hop has.

chris melendez : Flex needs to bronze that mic and donate it to the Smithsonian.

michael vieira : Nobody should go up to 97 after that vicious lyrical display! If you think you a rapper you gotta go to the black thought Harvard university school of flow!!!!! You come up there come correct.

Geoffrey Taylor : Breath 🌬️ control God like, not to mention he spitting nothing but 🌍🌫️🔥

Anthony McLean : I have lost all respect for Black Thought. How could the man do that to an innocent microphone? What did that microphone ever do to him!? And what about all the other rappers that wanted a chance to shine? He ruined it for everyone. Who wants to step to the mic after what he just did!? Funk Flex is gonna have a lot of rappers calling in sick after that one.

Darrin Boone : Black Thought pulled the sword out of the stone with this one.

tayvaun miller : Omg 😵💪 his breathing technique is unbelievable

Harlem IntheBuildn : 5 Million views in 6 months on June 15th, 2018 Friday. This Is Truly Impressive. Hip Hop Still Lives Here -- Ain't Going Nowhere.
