Freebie: Nneka x J.Period - The Madness (Onye-Ala) Mixtape

We recently started playing music from an artist by the name of Nneka. The song is called "The Uncomfortable Truth".A lot of people are truly digging the song. I actually wrote about her in October 2008 in the 'Don't Sleep On' artist features, and was on "Are You Feeling This" as well during the same time. I been a huge fan of her work. During that time, her music was only available as an import, but now she has started a US invasion.Nneka has released multiple records including one of my favorites from 2008 entitled "No Longer At Ease". She will be dropping her US debut "Concrete Jungle" in February of 2010, but you don't have to wait. You can a little taste via a mixtape courtesy of J.Period. The mixtape is called The Madness (Onye-Ala) and you can download it for free!
