Post Author:

J. Period spans the career of a legend with a comprehensive collection of exclusive remixes, interviews and classic Native Tongue joints that will make you RAWR RAWR like a dungeon dragon.

J. Period is setting an example and mixtape DJs need to take notice. His latest endeavor J.Period Presents… The [Abstract] Best, Vol. 1 is an exploration of the Abstract's mind, the inspirations, the Behind The Music stories, and demos that never saw daylight until now. J. Period goes above and beyond expectations and creates an audiobiography.

Discover the sly, clever side of Q-tip that tricked engineer Bob Power into making an appearance on “The Chase Pt. II.” Find out how De La Soul and Tribe met. Learn why Q-tip started calling himself “The Abstract.”

“Q-Tip has inspired a generation of hip hop artists and fans, and I am no exception,” seconds J.Period. “In an era of short attention spans, there is a reason why Q-Tip’s legacy has survived so long: like any great artist, his music has substance. I hope this tape shows why his name should be mentioned among hip hop’s all-time greats.”

Not only does J.Period include interviews from members of the Violators crew and Native Tongues, but the mixtape features Native Tongue artists covering classic A Tribe Called Quest songs.
