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.John Legend & The Roots ft. Pete Rock & CL Smooth – Our Generation (J.Period Remix) | Mediafire
Artwork by Fuse Green. Pre-order Wake Up! here. J.Period will be taking his act on the road with Black Thought as “The J.Period Live Mixtape” travels to Toronto for the Manifesto Festival on Sept. 26th.

Look for more info to release in the near future, but these will certainly see a release at Singapore’s Limited Edt. Vault.

Run 4 Cover (Starring : Nigel Sylvester) from 13thWitness™ on Vimeo.
After catching our attention with a previous teaser, multi-dimensional creative 13THWITNESS teams up with pro-BMX rider Nigel Sylvester to release their new video titled “Run 4 Cover”. Most bike-related lifestyle videos over the last little while have been mostly concentrated on that of the fixed gear realm as Run 4 Cover offers a different perspective from that of a BMX rider as we come along for a ride through New York City.
DJ Automatic returns to his Mixtale mixtape series focusing on the MC from Chicago, Common. Automatic gives his reason behind creating the project:
Sorry, but no track listing was presented with the project (at this time). Props to Nancy Byron for the heads up.“The reason I chose Common for this project is that he is not only one of my favorite MC’s of all time,” says Automatic, “but he has an entire career of music behind him that young music lovers don’t necessarily know. They see him in movies and have heard his newer releases but have no idea that Common was one of the rawest MC’s throughout the 90′s. Although I have followed his career from jump, it was still an honor to sit down with him in person and let him take me on his personal journey.”

This summer KRS joins a slew of mic icons on the Rock The Bells tour. Snoop Dogg, Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Slick Rick and the Wu-Tang Clan are the headliners on the outing, which has a different twist this time around: Each act is performing a classic album from their catalog. KRS picked the first album he performed on, Boogie Down Productions’ 1987 debut Criminal Minded.
The album, which had instrumentals by the late DJ Scott La Rock, set off a new era in battle rap with timeless tracks like “South Bronx” and “The Bridge Is Over.” It also introduced KRS as one of the new mic stars of the era, alongside Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap and the aforementioned Rakim. Right after his set at the Rock The Bells kickoff, KRS gave us some insight into his starmaking first LP:
“This may sound arrogant, but it’s the truth and it’s honest. We knew exactly what we were doing when we made this album. If you notice, all the away up to Return of the Boom Bap — I stopped doing it after Return of the Boom Bap — I used to say things like, ‘We will be here forever! Forever and ever!’ I used to always speak into the future: ‘I got rhymes for the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s.’ This was the ’80s. So yes, as a metaphysician, as a philosopher, you know what you are doing. We didn’t make mistakes. We still don’t. That’s why the albums are out the way they are. I say that humbly. I don’t say that with no arrogance; ‘Yeah, we knew what it was.’ No, we didn’t. What we knew was hip-hop. We knew if we came out with what our people wanted to hear, that’s just what it is. It wasn’t on the radio, there’s no videos for it. We just said what we knew the block wanted to hear at the time. We knew we were changing the game.
