Step Up to Get Beat Down

Step Up to Get Beat Down

A few months back an old school rapper wrote a blog about who was ready to take the mantle of best femme-c from Queen Latifah and MC Lyte.   He argued that it was a young lady that he had just signed and encouraged us to take a listen.

We did and she was okay, but many of us said that the throne was already occupied by Jean Grae.

Y’all don’t know her, though.  Which is sad because in a world of sexploitative music and mysognistic rappers we need more spitters like Jean Grae.  Unfortunately she has decided to step away from the game but not before leaving us with her often internet ripped Jeanius.

Here’s a review of her latest CD on NPR.  It was moderately reviewed but it’s good for her to get some national PR.
