Jean Grae This Week
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Babygrande
Discerning heads already know that Jean Grae has more skills than most rappers-male or female-in the game today. But the mainstream still hasn't come calling, and that fact might have something to do with this collection of radio-friendly joints. Underwhelming and uninspired production from Midi Mafia (50 Cent), Ninth Wonder (Jay-Z) and others doesn't do justice to Grae's shotgun-blast lyrics. Where is The Herbaliser when you need them? Shamefully, This Week sounds like it was put together to get some love from Rap City or TRL. Buy this disc to help Grae make the splash she's already deserves, then put it on the shelf and spin Attack of the Attacking Things instead.
