Audio: John Legend & The Roots "Our Generation (J.Period Remix)" feat. Pete Rock & CL Smooth
John Legend & The Roots' collabo LP, WAKE UP!, will be hitting shelves next Tuesday. Today, we get news that the good music won't end with that release – JL and The Roots crew are teaming with J.Period to put out a mixtape, WAKE UP! Radio in late November. The tape, which will have appearances from hip-hop and r&b heavyweights (to be announced later), will feature exclusive remixes, album outtakes, and interviews (with artwork by Fuse Green). Today, we get the lead single from the tape, and it's a banger. Listen to the J.Period remix of "Our Generation" (originally performed by Ernie Hines). This remix brings things full circle with an on wax reunion of Pete Rock & CL Smooth, which is fitting as the duo first sampled the same song on their seminal '92 single "Straighten It Out." Stay tuned to OKP and J.Period.com for more exclusive content from the tape leading up to its' release. You can stream the LP WAKE UP! in its' entirety over at NPR up until its' release date, one week from now on September 21st.
