J.PERIOD & Q-TIP RELEASE "Q-TIP FOR PRESIDENT" FREESTYLE; ANNOUNCE ALL-STAR BEST OF PROJECT
From the Press Release:
In the hip hop community, J.Period’s “Best Of” remix projects have become the stuff of legend. Hip hop and R&B heavyweights such as Kanye West, The Roots, Mary J., Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys are not only collaborators in J.Period mixes—they are huge fans. Now, J.Period is pleased to announce the latest in his award-winning remix series, a collaboration with one of hip hop’s most creative and influential artists of all-time: Q-Tip.
This landmark collaboration signals a real revival of the hip hop spirit, in keeping with the theme of Q-Tip’s new album, The Renaissance (“rebirth”), scheduled for release on Election Day, Nov 4. With the historical significance of this day in plain sight, J.Period & Q-Tip will release of an exclusive freestyle entitled “Q-Tip for President”—a reaffirmation of the best in hip hop, and a throwback to the elements that once made hip hop a powerful vehicle for social and political expression. The track, which revives Rakim’s classic of a similar name, will be available on Election Day as a free download on www.jperiod.com and across the internet.
To continue to help raise awareness for Q-Tip’s new album, J.Period has enlisted an all-star cast of Native Tongue contributors, including Questlove, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, De La Soul, Consequence and Black Thought to record exclusive material for the forthcoming “Best Of” tribute mix. Encompassing nearly 20 years of catalog, J.Period’s “Best of Q-Tip” seeks to remind fans of the depth of Q-Tip’s influence and contributions to hip hop, as well as to introduce his music to a new generation of hip hop fans around the globe. The complete mix is scheduled for release in early December, and will also be available as a free download on www.jperiod.com.
