Jean Grae Switches It Up On New '#5' EP
Having made quite a name for herself as a ridiculously prolific MC and performance artist, Jean Grae switches lanes with the release of her new #5 EP - the bodyroll inducing project which arrived on Sunday. Keeping fans on their toes, the short collection of jams finds Jean Grae serving up her own take on grown folks music. Singing and and sometimes rapping her way through an emotionally-charged and slightly quirky set of tracks, she makes her first foray into the realm of r&b with a solid project that packs a seductive punch and does not compromise the distinct personality or lyrical presence fans have come to expect. As if that weren't enough, the #5 EP was completed in just three days. Jean Grae delivers this project with a note on the creative process:
This is #5. I felt like doing something else. So I did. I really enjoy song crafting. The producing, the recording, the writing, the mixing, the everything. It's short, but grown. Love ya.
