Jean Grae (A.K.A. Jean Greasy) released her new FREE mixtape "Cookies or Comas" yesterday and if you like Hip Hop and you DON'T download it, you are stupid. IT'S FREE and AWESOME!
For those of you don't know, Jean Grae is a Hip-Hop wordsmith of the highest order, simultaneously mixing humour, thought-provoking social commentary and personal confessional style raps. Somehow balancing an extensive knowledge of geekdom (Her name is a reference to an X-Men character.) and a New York street-cool that you just can't fake.
This release is a precursor to Her upcoming album on Talib Kweli's indie label Blacksmith which will be called "Cake or Death". (Again, a geeky reference to the British cross-dressing comedian Eddie Izzard.) I implore you to download this mixtape and be converted.
