With several solid releases under her belt, South African-born, New York-bred rapper Jean Grae has been spinning heads for more than a decade now. What makes Grae stand out from the pack is her combination of wit and substance. Whether poking fun at herself on "Going Crazy" or rhyming about loyalty and dedication on "My Crew," Jean Grae does it all with supreme skill.

In 2005, Jean hooked up with producer 9th Wonder for a full length collaboration dubbed Jeanius, one of the best collaborative hip-hop albums ever.
