Soul Girl: Nneka

Soul Girl: Nneka

Hip hop icon Rakim joins The Roots and John Legend for “In The Ghetto (Wake Up!), the first offering from the J.Periodproject Wake Up Radio!, a remixtape modeled after The Roots and John Legend’s excellent collaborative album Wake Up!.
Featuring talented performers such as Q-Tip, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Nneka, K’NAAN, Dead Prez, Blu and more, the free mixtape pays“tribute to the legacy of soul music that paved the way for WAKE UP! and imagines a world where mainstream radio transmits music with a message.”
Indeed, Wake Up! Radio builds on an already impressive musical gem, and serves as a great sonic liaison between great artists from different eras, all while demonstrating that certain social problems and the musical messages which address them, are timeless.
