Jean Grae – “Bridge”

Search “Jean Grae” on Google images and “Nicki Minaj” is suggested as a related search. All they have in common is gender, race and occupation.

The artists they’re affiliated with sum up their differences. Nicki Minaj is signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money and Jean Grae is signed to Talib Kweli’s Blacksmith Records. There’s room for both but they occupy completely different ends of the spectrum.

My ears tend to favour Jean Grae’s direction. She could destroy most rappers – male or female. RJD2’s production here is crazy, it’s unorthodox but just what you’ve been waiting for.
