This is what I'm listening to today and (if you don't have it already) wanted to share it with you.  It actually been out since 2009, but is as timeless as the artists featured.  

I was on an exciting conference call today and J.Period was the topic of conversation for a number of reasons.  I've been listening to his compilations for the rest of the day.  Enjoy! <3 50 Shades of Black.

From the press release:  Acclaimed DJ/Producer, J.Period, and rising Somali-born MC, K’NAAN, are pleased to announce a unique and powerful remix project, paying tribute to the lasting legacy of these musical giants. Weaving afro-beat, reggae, ska, folk music and rock into this genre-bending musical experience, The Messengers stretches the boundaries of hip hop—and the mixtape genre itself. Remixing the classic work of Fela, Marley and Dylan, The Messengers captures the timelessness of their sounds and the continued urgency of their messages. The result, as fans have come to expect from J.Period, is like no mixtape you’ve ever heard.
