Remember the days when you were antsy at your desk waiting for the final school bell to ring, just so you could head to the record store? Remember receiving an allowance for taking out the garbage just so you could save for that new cassette or CD? Well two Brooklynites, producer J. Period and master-of-ceremonies Talib Kweli, give listeners that nostalgic moment with their latest collab, The Traveller. As usual, Kweli doesn’t disappoint with his double entendres and complex wordplay (as if he ever does) over superb, smoothly-sampled production. The Traveller is a standout selection lifted from J Dot Period’s new mixtape, The Rage Is Back, out now and also featuring Common, The Kid Daytona and many more. Now stop waiting and press play…
