Thanks Brothers for the posts. Jean Grae definitely has skillz. She is like a female Tupac and comparitively reminds me of Natalie Stewart of Floetry. Still, her material, while good lyrically and in presentation, is depressing. Pathos is an understatement. I guess the silver lining is that she survived it all.

If I had to pick a favorite track it would be PS. A good second would be Block Party.

It is definitely ironic to listen to her tracks prior to her mother’s work. There is definitely talent in the genes, albeit in a different musical outlet.

Great selection as always.
Jean Grae was in the group Natural Resource back in the mid 90’s and she went by the name What What. They released a few 12|s but they dropped a classic with “Negro League Baseball/They lied” 12| from 1996

Ya girl can rap – but she definitely need some refinement. I thought a couple of her songs were real close to being damn good. She is apparently an Eminem fan – her flow sounds like him a couple of times – especially in "Trouble Man", she even goes to being overly, ridiculously, descriptively violent in one part. Also, her song "PS" sounds an awful lot like Eminem’s "Dear Stan" from The Marshall Mathers LP.

Jean can definitely rap, like you said, but ol’ girl can be depressing as hell too. Plus she needs help on her "hooks and co-risses," as they say.

Yo, 4real, Jean is da TRUTH,DA ILLEST, you name it. No doubt, she isn’t for everyone EXCEPT da real Hip Hop heads! I think she has always stepped it up and CAN’T no female in da game touch ya girl! Jean is DOPE and from one female MC to another, I gotta give her crazy props for making sure that real Hip Hop lives on. I would love to hear her and Nas on a track together, like a bonnie and clyde type feel. Dat would be BANANAS!!! Imagine Dat!

Thank you for this. This is the best piece I’ve ever read on Jean! You mentioned some great songs, but I have to add to that her work with the Herbaliser. Check out “The Blend”, “New & Improved” “Mission Improbable” and “How To Keep a Girlfriend” for a start.
