This Thursday, March 15, 2012, the mixtape game’s master storyteller, J.Period, is proud to present The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg an epic tribute to the fallen King of G-Funk. Commemorating the one year anniversary of Nate’s passing, The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg features a who’s who of hip hop luminaries including Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Eminem, Nas, Ludacris, Dr. Dre, Mos Def and more—an all-star lineup that reflects the worldwide impact of Nate Dogg’s musical talents. The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg also marks the first-ever West Coast hip hop tribute from Brooklyn-based J.Period, originally born in Los Angeles, and raised on West Coast hip hop. Because J.Period is primarily known for collaborations with conscious artists like John Legend, Q-Tip and Lauryn Hill, The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg also marks a thematic departure for the DJ—hip hop icon Questlove has already dubbed this his “most ignant mixtape of all time!!”—but proves definitively that J.Period’s DJ skills extend into any arena in hip hop. If the music is hot, and there’s a story to be told, no one does it better than J.Period.
