Mixtape : J.Period x The Roots x John Legend – Wake Up! Radio


01 Prologue Inner City Blues f. Black Thought & John Legend

Shout out to Okayplayer.com for this. Late last year, we got word of a new project our man J.Period was working on, Wake Up! Radio. In honor of John Legend & The Roots‘ Grammy nominated album, Wake Up!, J & Truelements Music put together this remix compilation featuring Legend, The Roots Crew, Rakim, Common, Nneka, Q-Tip, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, K’Naan, and more. Black Thought hosts this epic mixtape, which remixes and rebuilds the original recording sessions from the Wake Up! album. To go along with this tape, J will also release an exclusive digital 12″ on Tuesday (2/15) featuring a collab between John Legend, Black Thought, and the God MC Rakim, “In The Ghetto (Wake Up!).”

“When this project began, I was excited to explore the legacy of soul music behind the WAKE UP! album,” explains J.Period, “but I had no idea of the level of access and creative freedom I would be granted by John Legend & The Roots to tell that story. The result is not only something that traces musical history lines from artists like Marvin Gaye to contemporaries like John Legend — but something that adds to that history: brand new collaborative tracks as if Marvin & John recorded together. It’s simply unprecedented on a mixtape. And I am particularly proud of the fact that all of it speaks to the true power of music to carry a message, and have a positive impact on society, and on people’s lives.” This star-studded tape is being given away for free – follow me after the jump for the download.
