On 28 April 2008, Jean Grae posted a blog on her MySpace page saying goodbye to her fans. There has been debate as to if Jean Grae has quit Hip-Hop or just MySpace. As of April 2008, there has been no official statement from Jean Grae or Blacksmith Records as to her future in the music industry.


does anyone know the truth behind this? Did she retired for real?

The 'Attack...' album was pretty dope too, very intellectual.

He's impressed by her boobs from that picture angle.

Anyways...I dont think shes gonna retire.Its just a publicity stunt,like to make her comeback album sell better.Or something like that.

wow.

I've never seen a pic of jean before. She's the hottest female I've ever heard spit. Period. She runs circles around most so called mainstream cats and no female I've ever heard holds a candle to her. I'm attracted to women with real talents.

She's definitely a dope emcee. I hope it's not true about her retiring. She is what every other female emcee should be like.

Haters Anthem is ill to.....i honestly would say she pick up where lauryn hill left off. i only listen to quality artist and when i heard she was retiring i was disappointed. Jean grae and Bahamadia are like the only to female emcees i listen to.....AND respect...it's not all about show your ass and breast to win respect and fans. they do it because they love to

i have to agree with you their...i think if more artist were like jean grae then alot of people would respect people of her status as an artist. it would be no misogyny going on in the industry where male rapper only get female rappers to promote themselves with sex.

A great mc. No need to even just call her a great female mc as that's selling her short. She'll be back though. Everyone does it occasionally. Probably frustration at the delays in releasing her new album and at it getting bootlegged ages ago and so on. she'll cool down and then realise that she aint whole unless she's rapping.

If she does actually quit, she'll still leave behind a better catalogue than most rappers.

Yeah haters Anthem is nice.
I agree with the promoting sex part as well.
Props on mentioning Bahamadia...she is another master of her craft.
And may I add Makeba Moon Cycle & Njeri Earth

She is nice, but the greatest female MC (IMO) still goes to MC Lyte. Who could easily slay 95% of what you hear on the radio in her sleep. I think Jean Grae put it down nicely on Brooklyn In My Mind on Dream Merchant Vol. 2.
