John Legend & The Roots – Our Generation (J-Period Remix) f/ Pete Rock & CL Smooth

by Eric on September 14, 2010

C’mon Pete & Corey, just get an album together already!! Hit the jump for audio..

With John Legend & The Roots joining forces to propel political songs like Ernie Hines’ “Our Generation” back into mainstream popularity, it was only fitting for J.Period to reunite the group that first sampled Hines’ on their seminal ’92 single “Straighten It Out”—artists from an era when hip hop carried its own social message—Pete Rock & CL Smooth. Back together on wax for the first time in 7 years, Pete & CL are in rare form on “Our Generation (J.Period Remix),” spitting conscious lyrics that remind us of hip hop’s potential to move not only our feet, but our spirit.
