Brought to you byÂ Tamir Z. Brown and Lyrics To Go, J. PERIOD and BLACK THOUGHT of The ROOTS are creating a live mixtape performance this evening, at Brooklyn Bowl, featuringÂ J. Period andÂ Black Thought, Mr. Mecca, Scotch Davies, The XFactor Boogie Blind (of Xecutioners) and DJ Suga Ray.
What exactly is a “live mixtape performance”? Well, J. Period explains it as
Built like a J.Period mixtape, the Live Mixtape weaves in and out of verses, interludes, hits and exclusives, with Black Thought rocking the crowd throughout, showing clearly why he is widely hailed as one of the top MC’s… ever. Since its premiere at Toronto’s Manifesto Festival in September, 2010, the J.Period Live Mixtape feat. Black Thought has travelled to Miami, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, El Paso and more.
Next stop, Broooook-lyyynnn … Hosted by the always witty D-Stroy (of the Arsonists), the night and the ensuing mixtape are sure to be extremely entertaining, Hip Hop in its purest form.
