John Legend & The Roots x J.Period – Wake Up! Radio | New Mixtape


Highly respected mixtape DJ/Producer J.Period has finally liberated the Wake Up! Radio mixtape he compiled with special help from John Legend and The Legendary Roots Crew.

The mixtape, which was put together in-conjunction with the Grammy award winning LP Wake Up, was supposed to have dropped sometime around the album’s release. However, J.Period, how has in the past put together critically acclaimed mixtapes for Nas and Lauryn Hill, is known for being a perfectionist and thus took his time to perfect the the mixes and overall sound of the tape.

Hosted by The Roots’ own Black Thought, WAKE UP! RADIO pays tribute to the legacy of soul music that paved the way for WAKE UP! and imagines a world where mainstream radio transmits music with a message. Employing an all-star cast of musical contemporaries (including John Legend & The Roots themselves), J.Period dissects, remixes and rebuilds the original recording sessions from the WAKE UP! album in an unprecedented manner, defying the conventional wisdom of what a “mixtape” can be—producing a full-fledged remix album in the process.

If you loved Wake Up, you will adore this mixtape… Do yourself a favour and download it.
