"Powin Up (The Spirit Of Peer Pressure)" is an attempt to confront the times by engaging culture and speaking on societal conflicts as they relate to youth and Christianity. While everybody's vibing to the music and indulging in unhealthy practices, the message is clear: I love you, God loves you, and He's STILL here and able to help. Meet them where THEY are to bring them where YOU are, folks.

Embracing the role of music as a catalyst for healing and change, J.PERIOD joins forces with artist/activists including Jesse Williams, Rhymefest, Aloe Blacc, Joss Stone, Black Thought (The Roots), DJ Jazzy Jeff, Pharoahe Monch, Posdnous (De La Soul) and more for “RISE UP! Music Inspired by America Divided.” The first single “Miranda” features an introduction from actor/activist Jesse Williams, with rappers Rhymefest & Xzibit posing provocative questions about the state of our nation over a J.PERIOD-produced beat. “We’re pointing fingers at each other and we’re missing the point…” Rhymefest begins. Unity, not division, is the solution for what ails our country—a fitting message in honor of what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 88th birthday earlier this week.
