In celebration of Adam Mansbach’s latest novel “Rage Is Back: A Novel,” J. Period recruits one of the most underrated emcees to ever touch a mic and the Roots front man, Black Thought for “Rage Is Back (Freestyle).” Using the classic instrumentals of Nas & Primo’s “N.Y. State of Mind,” this track serves as the first single of J. Periods forthcoming “Rage Is Back” mixtape coming later this month.
Set against the backdrop of graffiti-era New York, Manbach’s Rage Is Back delivers a mind-bending journey through a subterranean world of epic heroes and villains, and is already being called “the great American graffiti novel”. Rage is Back is currently Amazon.com’s “Book of the Month”
