J.Period "Holla If Ya Hear Me" (A 2Pac Mixtape)


Much love to J.Period for putting together this emotional and heartfelt tribute to 2Pac with his latest mixtape, Holla If Ya Hear Me. Piecing together interviews from 2Pac alongside expertly blended remixes and classic cuts, this 38-track mixtape celebrates the life of 2Pac, and gives us cause to reflect on what could've been had we not lost him to senseless violence. That said, it's appropriate to share 2Pac in his own words: "Don't support the phonies, support the real. How can these people talk about how real they are and they don't care about our communities? They talk about I'm this and I'm that, but they don't give a sh!t about the community. Listen to the words that people say in their lyrics and tell me if that's some real real sh!t, if that's real to you? Listen to what they're saying. Don't just bob your head to the beat, peep the game. And listen to what I'm saying and hold us accountable for it." Amen. Rest In Peace, Tupac Amaru Shakur and Afeni Shakur.
