It’s a bit later than you might’ve expected since we were still in the fall of last year when that Pete & CL reunion joint of this tape first leaked but it finally dropped. Given the care that J.Period usually puts into his tapes and the fact that he’s one of the few mixtape DJ’s to still, you know, actually mix his tapes, I think we can all forgive him.

From the press release:

Hosted by The Roots’ own Black Thought, WAKE UP! RADIO pays tribute to the legacy of soul music that paved the way for WAKE UP! and imagines a world where mainstream radio transmits music with a message. Employing an all-star cast of musical contemporaries (including John Legend & The Roots themselves), J.Period dissects, remixes and rebuilds the original recording sessions from the WAKE UP! album in an unprecedented manner, defying the conventional wisdom of what a “mixtape” can be—producing a full-fledged remix album in the process.

Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
