Originally posted on Think Zebra: J.Period just put out this nice little project called #RAGEISBACK, which is a musical accompaniment to the novel of the same name. Bringing together a hefty group of talent on the mic, with names like Black Thought, Talib Kweli, Homeboy Sandman and Blu involved, the focus of #RAGEISBACK is New York’s influence on hip hop and its surrounding culture.

Below you can check out Black Thought over the NY State of Mind beat and Common over the Sour Times beat, both refixed by J.Period with sickeningly good results. The mixtape is available to buy now and you can see more info on the track listing over at okayplayer.com.
