DJ J.PERIOD X JOHN LEGEND X THE ROOTS X PETE ROCK AND CL SMOOTH


John Legend and The Roots got together with J.Period for the official Wake Up! mixtape. Below is the first release from “Wake Up! Radio.”
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.
