Jean Grae takes out Craigslist ad
It’s no secret that Jean Grae is a little bit disillusioned with the current state of rap. Her albums never quite get the credit they deserve and in recent years her identity has become almost entirely entangled with Talib Kweli’s. A recent rumor that she was retiring from the game was denied by Kweli, but it turns out she found a new, unique way to put her music out.
Last week the 31-year-old rapper took out a Craigslist ad offering her services to anyone willing to put up a few bucks. All you have to do is make a beat and send it to her and she will spit 16 bars for 800 bucks. And she makes special note that this price IS negotiable.
The full ad is here. It’s a great read if you have a couple minutes. She also makes note that she has another unauthorized album coming out on Tuesday. Not sure what’s up with that but sounds good.
