Newly signed to Babygrande Records in conjunction with Orchestral Entertainment, critically-acclaimed MC Jean Grae is getting ready to drop her first release for the label, The Bootleg of the Bootleg EP, on October 7th. Acclaimed as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Bands on the Brink” in May 2003, and hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as “the best-kept secret on New York’s indie hip-hop scene”, Grae is arguably the most gifted and critically well-received female emcee in years. Gritty and raw yet intelligently artistic, Jean’s debut LP “Attack of the Attacking Things” garnered wide critical acclaim, immediately solidifying her place as not only an indie hip-hop icon, but as one of today’s most promising new artists.
