J.Period & Truelements Music are pleased to announce a groundbreaking new mixtape collaboration with Grammy-winners John Legend & The Roots, in support of their politically-charged and soulful new album, WAKE UP! . In the collaborative spirit of this history-making LP, the mixtape’s first single, Our Generation (J.Period Remix, reunites one of hip hop’s most influential and important groups… Pete Rock & CL Smooth!
With John Legend & The Roots joining forces to propel political songs like Ernie Hines’ Our Generation back into mainstream popularity, it was only fitting for J.Period to reunite the group that first sampled Hines’ on their seminal ’92 single Straighten It Out—artists from an era when hip hop carried its own social message—Pete Rock & CL Smooth. Back together on wax for the first time in 7 years, Pete & CL are in rare form on Our Generation (J.Period Remix), spitting conscious lyrics that remind us of hip hop’s potential to move not only our feet, but our spirit.
J.Period’s Our Generation Remix is the first offering from J.Period’s forthcoming mixtape, Wake Up! Radio featuring an all-star cast of hip hop & R&B heavyweights—scheduled for release in late November. Wake Up! Radio is the perfect companion piece to John Legend & The Roots’ WAKE UP! LP, with exclusive remixes, album outtakes, personal interviews with John Legend, Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson, and Black Thought
