J. Period Honors The Iconic Biggie Smalls With March 9th Revisited (Mixtape)
DJ J. Period is among the absolute best deejays doing it right now. When he’s not providing the sounds for the Brooklyn Nets, the longtime affiliate to Zion I, Black Thought, and Common makes conceptual, fully-produced mixtapes (often released in clever formats like t-shirts, zip drives, etc.) that honor the greats, without completely handing over their music like free, disposable product. He’s worked with living legends like Nas, Lauryn Hill, and Spike Lee, and he’s also honored the underground community, including cats like Mr. Lif, C-Rayz Walz and more on his cuts. J’s original March 9th mixtape honored The Notorious B.I.G. with grace and style. Revisiting the theme, the True Elements founder unloads #March9thRevisted. The tape cleverly and effectively pairs Biggie’s vocals with the artists he’s influenced, ranging from Kendrick Lamar to Jay Electronica. The music keeps moving strong, and the concepts are depth and vast.
This tape may be the perfect means to bring Big’s work to those younger Heads who weren’t around to see, feel and watch his impact.
Stream-only for now, as these hits belong in any collection…
