Jean Grae Assassin one

Jean Grae is a favorite of mine, and on her mixtape "Cookies or Comas" (seriously, go google it) she has a track called Assassins (It's from Pharoah Monche's album, me thinks). This is inspired by that track, and commissioned by a dude who's also a Grae fan. Perfect storm, my dudes.

Anyway, I had stupid amounts of fun with this commission!

best,
Mike

Yeah, she sick. On Pharoah Monch's WAR she is on one of the tracks, maybe that is the one. She collabs with great folks, Monch and Kweli come to mind. I dig her lyrics, they aren't all bravado. She digs deep and puts herself out there sometimes.

Great drawing.

Great piece! Composition and narrative; she's also amazing on Immortal Technique's The Illest.

Jean's tight, and the drawing is damn good.! When I was a college radio DJ, people were constantly requesting her music, and I became a huge fan of hers.
MisterHardtimes's avatar
Yeah, she's been around a while and has a big following but it's still mostly hard core fans that dig her ;-)

Jean has had a few hitman/ assasin tracks in her day. She's not only lyrically gifted, but she's a hell of a storyteller. A rare find in hip-hop these days.

I thought you were going to say this is for a cover or something. I would've had a nergasm in my pants. L O L !
MisterHardtimes's avatar
Well....you never know ;-)

But, yeah. Love her story songs. She has a great one where she's in a diner full of cops after having shot a guy and she's injured. Great stuff.
