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. On Thursday, September 13, J.PERIOD brings this dynamic format to Sony Hall in New York for a star-studded, one-night-only affair: THE LIVE MIXTAPE [#TOP5 EDITION] featuring Rakim, Pharoahe Monch, and featuring special guest Black Thought.  Listed among this week’s top concerts by The New York Times (click here), three of hip hop’s all-time elite MC’s will share the stage for this historic hip-hop moment. THE LIVE MIXTAPE puts lyricism center stage and makes a case for these 3 fire-breathing MCs among hip hop’s all-time #Top5.

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 Black Thought, Styles P, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Posdnuos (De La Soul), Mumu Fresh & Dead Prez.

Past lineups include hip-hop heavyweights: Fat Joe, Mobb Deep, Scott Storch, Royce The 5’9”, Kool G Rap, Smif N Wessun, Big Daddy Kane and more.  Past shows include tributes to James Brown (NYC), J Dilla (Miami), plus festival-rocking sets at Brooklyn Hip Hop FestivalThe Roots Picnic, and a headlining set at Toronto’s Manifesto Festival.

Watch highlights of J.PERIOD & Black Thought at The Roots Picnic, “The Live Mixtape: Illadelph Edition” or go behind the scene for the making of “The Live Mixtape: James Brown Edition.”
