VIDEO: "KILL SCREEN"----JEAN GRAE
Jean Grae is an anomoly within Hip Hop, because she MOST DEFINITELY rhymes to the beat of her own drum, so to speak. Her topicality has so much depth and substance, but it typically gets lost in the proverbial sauce when mainstream comes into question. Truth be told, I don't think that Jean Grae worries about acceptance from any mainstream constituency. Again, she is cut from a different mold, a mold more akin to Rakim Allah than Nicki Minaj. This new video, "Kill Screen", is another twisted view from the mentality of this lyrical tornado. The visuals are haunting, revealing, visceral and weird. Pretty much Jean Grae. No knock on her, because I feel strongly that she is one of the dopest artists in Hip Hop. Absolutely NO ONE touches her when melding lyricism, humor and smugness. You gotta love the artist known as Jean Grae.
