Jean Grae launches a new multimedia company that will serve as the platform for her next solo projects.
Even though her deal with Talib Kweli's Blacksmith Records fell through, that isn't keeping Jean Grae from finding a new avenue to release her music. According to a recent report from HipHopWired, the veteran rhymer has launched a new multimedia company.
Jean Grae recently teamed up with Guy Routte, CEO of Pharoahe Monch's W.A.R. Media, to launch a new multimedia company called Kids Are Gonna Die. This partnership between W.A.R. and KAGD will serve as a platform for the South Africa-born emcee's long-awaited sixth and seventh LPs, Gotham Down and Cake Or Death.
Grae's next solo albums aren't the only projects that KAGD has lined up for the near-future, however. The company is also planning to produce a bi-weekly sitcom "Life with Jeannie" directed by and starring Grae, as well as release a comedic holiday EP from the underground veteran titled Ho X 3.
DX will keep you updated as more information on the deal comes to light.
