Called a "classic in every sense of the word" by HipHopDX and praised by The New Yorker, XXL and Rolling Stone, J.PERIOD & K'NAAN's The Messengers series has been widely hailed as a groundbreaking achievement in remixing, chronicling the music and message of three of history's most influential performers. Episode 1 pays tribute to Fela Kuti, Nigeria's eminent musical activist; Episode 2 celebrates Jamaica’s global emissary of struggle & unity, the great Bob Marley; and Episode 3 celebrates America’s reluctant Civil Rights song leader and poetic voice, Bob Dylan. On The Messengers, J.PERIOD remixes and re-invents three musical giants for the hip hop generation, with Somalia's activist/songwriter K'NAAN fusing past into present to tell his own story of struggle and perseverance. The result is an unprecedented and truly unique musical experience.
