J.Period (born 12 February 1975 in Los Angeles, California)[3] is a Brooklyn-based Mixtape DJ, remixer and hip-hop producer. He is best known for producing official mixtape collaborations with Q-Tip, John Legend, Nas, Big Daddy Kane, Lauryn Hill, The Roots, The Isley Brothers and Mary J. Blige, and an "audio-biography" style that incorporates personal interviews with these artists into his "Best of" compilations.[4] His original production and remixes have also recently appeared in film trailers for Universal Pictures' American Gangster (2007)[5] and Fox Searchlight's Street Kings (2008).[6] In November 2008, J.Period became the first DJ/producer ever commissioned by Activision to score and produce an entire video game soundtrack--Tony Hawk's Motion for Nintendo DS.[7]
