Jean Grae - Casebasket

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Boogie Blind
Album:
Cookies or Comas

For free 99 Jean will beat 99 acts down? Sounds like a deal, huh? Jean Grae is one of the best lyricists of our time. No, not just one of the best female lyricists, one of the best lyricists period, regardless of gender. Ranked, she has to be in your Top 20. You just can’t deny her talent (as hard as some may try). Just like she so often does on Twitter, Greasy goes on a rant-page with her latest offering, CaseBasket. Kicking off the festivities is producer Boogie Blind (last seen on our pages for Pharaohe’s Clap), who laces a boom-bap centered beat with complexly layered sonic elements. Lyrically CaseBasket comes, of course, packed with punch lines, random wordplay and an outro rambling that includes a Rudy Huxtable reference and plenty of marzipan. Wait, marzipan?! Ha! This is classic Jean. Ahead of a currently untitled full album coming this fall, Jean Grae is dropping her Cookies or Comas mixtape, dropping right here on DJBooth on June 23 and featuring the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, Royce da 5’9” and many more.
