J. Period – “Rise Up!” feat. Black Thought (Of The Roots) x Posdnuos (Of De La Soul) x Pharoahe Monch x Joss Stone
YOOOOO! This jawn BANGS!! Beatz & Lyrics on display (nice working in that ‘Phoenix’ sample from Tariq in the breaks). Every lyricist bringing drive; racing down the J. Period track like we gotta get there. Where? To the revolution!
What does it mean to “RISE UP?” What does it mean to RESIST?
Produced by J.PERIOD, this epic single brings together an historic lineup of artists — Black Thought of The Roots, Posdnuos of De La Soul, Pharoahe Monch & Joss Stone — to explore the meaning of “resistance” and the state of our Union. Additional production and instrumentation from Stro Elliot (Playlist Retreat), Larrance Dobson (1500 Or Nothin, Kendrick Lamar, Timbaland) and Jesse Blum (Misterwives). RISE UP EP available May 2.
Jon Connor’s “Unconscious State” is coming to iTunes…later. On deck now is “Rise Up” (featuring Talib Kweli). ‘This one’s for the heads y’all.’ Lyrics full of social commentary and indicting statements on the state of Hip-Hop (‘went from body rocking to molly popping’… true). Put this one on repeat and tell your friends about it (the ones with thick enough skin to take it).
