From Rakim to Kendrick, MC Lyte to Noname, Scarface to Key Glock, Biggie to Dave, storytellers have always been Hip-Hop's trendsetters. It's the rare DJ who can craft a narrative with only beats, but Brooklyn DJ J.PERIOD, a renowned creator who has made a name over the past quarter century with his "audio-biographical" mixes for icons like Nas, Q-Tip, Lauryn Hill and The Roots, is a real one. The Mixtape Assassin's reputation as a top-tier producer, a groundbreaking musical historian, and a trusted collaborator is second to none. In 2021, J.PERIOD dropped his opus, Story to Tell (Chapter One), with guest appearances by Black Thought, Masego, Joell Ortiz, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Join us for the album listening and release party for the sequel, Story to Tell (Chapter Two), featuring conversation with J.PERIOD and Lincoln Center’s Hip-Hop guest curator Xavier “X” Jernigan on the making of the album and Hip-Hop's greatest storytellers. Expect special guests and live performances!
