J. Period Reveals 'Rise Up' Guest Features + Tracklist
Friend and fam to the site, J. Period, is giving his all to the people after taking home a huge W for his successful Hamilton mixtape, which topped the Billboard 200 in its first week. As we reported last week, the talented DJ-and-producer has linked up with actor-and-activist, Jesse Williams for a protest effort titled, Rise Up!
The title track, which featured IRL raps from Black Thought, Posdnuos, Pharoahe Monch and Joss Stone, was only the first appetizer from this 11-track offering. Inspired by the EPIX documentary series, America Divided, J. Period’s unofficial-official soundtrack, which is slated for public release May 2nd, will feature guest appearances from DJ Jazzy Jeff, First Look Friday alum Maségo, Aloe Blacc, Eric Roberson and more.
