  • Artist: Jean Grae
  • Track: Bridge
  • Producer: RJD2
  • Album: Year of the Blacksmith Community Mixtape

Amongst the recent battle of the femcees and the onslaught of Nicki Minaj’s overhyped musical workings (yeah, I’m on that side), I got to wondering when I’d actually hear a talented woman on a hip-hop track who wasn’t singing the hook. Well, Jean Grae has once again proven she’s one of the go-to emcees of either gender on the brand new leak of her slow burner, Bridge. Thankfully, Grae doesn’t spazz out with alternate personalities on her tracks, choosing instead to keep it simple and soulful, using legendary Def Jux producer RJD2’s mellow techno mix to relax the mind, enabling listeners to better let Jean’s relationship breakdown lines seep into their ears and brains. Thank you god, I was in need of some music like this after being forced to endure the radio for hours on end. The best part is that she’ll be joined by some other dope friends on the upcoming Year of The Blacksmith Community Mixtape, which will hopefully arrive soon after a few other approved leaks (see Spread My Wings). So sit back, chill out, and enjoy this bridge to the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving Booth Nation.
