J.Period ft. Black Thought, Posdnuos, Pharoahe Monch & Joss Stone – Rise Up!

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017


J. Period taps a trio of lyrical legends for “Rise Up!,” a new anthem for the resistance that features Black Thought De La Soul’s Posdnuos and Pharoahe Monch. Joss Stone also contributes vocals and Period tells Rolling Stone that the song was in part inspired by the success of Lin Manuel-Miranda’s Hamilton and its accompanying mixtape, which he also worked on. He explains:

“I felt that if we could create compelling music around these issues issues, we might help light a similar fire in listeners.””These are turbulent times in America, with protests and marches spilling out into the streets in record numbers, and activism on the rise. ‘Rise Up’ was born out of that same energy”

Listen to “Rise Up!” below.
