For decades, J. Period has been the guy that hip-hop legends know, though the mainstream might not. He’s done official mixtapes for Lauryn Hill and the Roots, toured with Black Thought, created The Hamilton Mixtape with Lin-Manuel Miranda, and DJed worldwide with the best of the best.

Now, with the release of Story To Tell, J. Period has entered a new stratosphere. He’s stepping into the role of artist and making big moves, visiting the Tonight Show just last week. To celebrate the moment, he’s sitting down with longtime collaborator Talib Kweli and his People’s Party co-host Jasmin Leigh to talk through… all of it.

A mixtape lesson from the absolute king of the genre.
