DJ/Producer J.PERIOD returns with an epic new single titled“Ohio”: “SOLDIERS” featuring freedom fighters Dead Prez and rising stars Sa-Roc & Maimouna Youssef.
Sampling The Isley Brothers’ “Ohio” over a hard-hitting track produced by J.PERIOD, “SOLDIERS” reframes a growing racial divide and rising tensions between police and inner city youth across the country.
“SOLDIERS” is the first release from the forthcoming, The RISE UP Project, executive produced by J.PERIOD, Young Guru, DJ Khalil and DJ Jazzy Jeff, featuring artists and activists including: Black Thought (The Roots), Jesse Williams, Aloe Blacc, Andra Day, Joss Stone, Posdnous(De La Soul), Pharoahe Monch, and Rhymefest. The RISE UP Project is made possible by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and features cover art from award-winning artist Ernesto Yerena.
