THE ONLY MIXTAPE OF ITS KIND: RECORDED LIVE ON STAGE, IN ONE TAKE.
NOW AVAILABLE, FOR THE FIRST TIME, ON APPLE MUSIC, SPOTIFY AND TIDAL!
J.PERIOD’s collaborative, improvisational performance series, THE LIVE MIXTAPE, is just that: a hip hop mixtape, performed and recorded live on stage - in one take - by some of hip hop’s most celebrated MCs, and one of its most groundbreaking DJs.
For the latest installment of The Live Mixtape, J.PERIOD recruited three of Hip Hop’s undisputed microphone kings (Rakim, Black Thought, and Pharoahe Monch) to re-ignite the timeless Hip Hop debate - who’s your Top 5 MCs? - in front of a sold-out crowd in New York City (featured guests included: Smif N Wessun, Black Sheep Dres, Mumu Fresh and Stro Elliot).
One legendary night. And we got it all on tape.
Now, thanks to an historic partnership with Dubset Media, The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition] will, for the first time ever, be available on all major streaming platforms. Today, The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition] goes live on Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.
2018 has seen some of THE LIVE MIXTAPE’s most electric installments to date, with shows at The Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music and The Roots Picnic (Philadelphia), featuring Styles P, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Posdnuos (De La Soul), and Dead Prez. Past lineups include hip hop heavyweights: Fat Joe, Mobb Deep, Scott Storch, Royce The 5’9”, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane and more.
Past shows include tributes to James Brown (NYC) and Jay Dilla (Miami), crowd-rocking sets featuring surprise guests at Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, legendary MC cyphers at the inaugural Roots Picnic NYC, and a headlining performance at the Manifesto Festival (Toronto).
