J. Period & Black Thought - Live Mixtape (Illadelph Edition) EP

Recently, we gave you some footage from J.Period and Black Thought's headlining set at Toronto's Manifesto with the promise of much more to come. Today, y'all get to cash in with this exclusive J.Period & Black Thought Live Mixtape (Illadelph Edition) EP for free download (presented by Truelements + Lyrics to Go). The EP was recorded live on stage during their September 26th performance , and features 30 minutes of Live J.Period remixes while Black Thought eats up every beat that J puts on. Thought rhymes over beats from Foxy Brown, Damian Marley, dead prez, Jay-Z, Snoop, Biggie, Drake, and more. "Put him over any beat, I don’t care what beat […] he can hold his own,” says J. Period of Black Thought. And the respect is mutual, “I came to do this just on the strength of J. Period saying ‘I’m trying to do this joint.’ […] I appreciate J. Period’s hustle. He’s dedicated and he goes in. Once he has a vision, he’s gonna see it through to fruition.” Also included in the download is the above video, which features behind the scenes footage from the show (produced by The Manifesto), interviews with J & BT, and HD footage of the Live Mixtape in action. Enough talk, hop over the break to download.
