Some ancient cultures associated the boar with healing. This arises from the boar’s ability to fearlessly face unknown dangers. Tariq ‘Black Thought’ Trotter has risen and succeeded in the face of overwhelming odds, including the murder of both of his parents. As the MC and co-founder of the legendary Roots crew, he has taken on hip hop culture and shattered the perception that the genre has no musicality and only one dimension. Tariq was raised in a dual religious household, which fueled his rapping, leading him to meditate on ‘black thoughts’. He is no stranger to addressing race relations, politics and violence in his music, which are reflected in the symbolic traits of the wild boar; truth, courage, and confrontation. When a boar runs into conflict, it attacks with remarkable ferocity. Black Thought is widely revered for his intricate and multisyllabic rhyming, complex lyricism and double entendres. There is a ferocity in his art that makes him such a powerful and respected figure.
