Say It ain't so!!!


One of my favourite female emcees, Jean Grae has recently revealed that she is considering retirement.
This is what she posted on her myspace page...

'It's been a wonderful and awful journey all at the same time. Mostly leaning towards the wonderful Thank you for letting me share what I could with you and sharing yourselves back, as you have really been the reason that I kept on. I will always love what I consider to be true hip hop music... from the bottom of my soul. I hope you will continue to distinguish those who are contributors to the evolution of Hip Hop and other black music as both an auditory stimulation and a culture, taking care that they are put in a position to do so.'
She ends the note saying, 'Enjoy…see y’all around. It’s been amazing. Thank you again'

I'm seriously hoping that this retirement talk is some sort of marketing ploy [Insert Jay-Z here] and not the truth. Her album 'Jeanius', produced entirely by 9th Wonder, was set to finally have a formal release later this year.
