Jean Grae - Cookies or Comas [Mixtape]



Whats this? A female MC who doesn't wear Gucci AND has actual talent? All snark aside Jean Grae is not only my favorite female MC, but she's also better than most rappers out right now. Period. If you need proof just take a listen to her new, free mixtape "Cookies or Comas" which is a precursor to her upcoming album "Cake or Death." The album was set for a fall release but seems to have been pushed back, with Grae stating she doesn't want to announce a new release date until the LP is perfect. Looks like we'll need to survive on snacks before we get any cake.

Luckily this mixtape is more than just a snack with 11 tracks featuring her fellow Blacksmith labelmate [and label head] Talib Kweli, The Lox's Styles P, Royce Da 5’9″ from Slaughterhouse, and Pharoahe Monch. One of the tracks was previously released on Talib Kweli's last album "Gutter Rainbows." Mixtape or not this is one of the better releases of the year and comes highly recommended.
