Who is Jean Grae?

Jean is a super hero. She's better than you at doing everything. Even stuff you haven't done yet. She writes raps and makes music too. All of which are better than your raps or music, if you do that sort of thing.

"The Climb"

Hey guys! I thought I would drop a little internet gem for you.
It's from a collection of songs I like to call "Dusty Jeans."
All miniature rap tunes done over some of my favorite short grooves.
This is a nice little re-intro to me and some things to make you not yell at me before "Cake or Death" drops ....which is in about 2 seconds. SO, heres a cute little video to go with it... enjoy.

It's VERY different to what Cake or Death sounds like, but .... I like doing different shit.

Hope you plan on posting more shorts over time. Or releasing them all under the Dusty Jeans title. Always good to hear new music. Can't wait to hear what you put down on the new Ras Kass project as well. Keep the freshness coming.

Very enjoyable tune Ms Grae. More hip hop than what a lot of stuff that tries to pass of as hip hop these days.

Like my friend said Jay-Z and Rhianna can release a soft rock track and nobody bats an eye lid. It's hip hop...eeek! or more to the point hip hop and RnB merged. I had a argument with a African girl from work recently after i played her 'Volcano' by Antipop Consortium (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TSXxfMV9zQ)
and she said "That's RnB". I was fucking horrified at this reply.

She asked me to describe what 'rap' means. I told her it was the ability to rhyme poetry in flow more often over a beat. She completely disagreed with this.
Then telling me that "You don't like music by black people, do you?".
She shut up upset after i told her to stop watching too much television cos it makes you stupid.
(we've kissed and made up now btw).

A good tune. Btw there was a old 80's style track on one of you're myspace pages a few years back. Fuck if i can remember the name of it. Care to shed any light cos it blew my fucking head off!!

Track's fine. Icant say anything that hasnt already been said about it. WHat floors me is the idea that you probably wrote that in like an hour (plus a pen and a pad). Or maybe you didnt write it at all. Wunnafull Wunnafull.
