Jean Grae The Bootleg of the Bootleg EP
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Babygrande
Goddamn, Jean Grae has done it again. Grae's the illest female on the mic, but it ain't even about being in the "female" subdivision; she will smoke a whole lot of MCs regardless of X or Y chromosomes. Boasting a flow that spills forth endlessly and effortlessly, Grae hits all the benchmarks of a great lyricist: funny, insightful, clever and gifted with words. The production on this disc isn't stellar, but it is solid, and a workable beat is all Jean needs to get busy. Throw in a big-ass bonus track of freestyles, and this is a straight-up sure shot.
