Jean Grae Retires?
It looks like Jean Grae is bidding adieu to the record industry.
In a new blog on her MySpace page, the Brooklyn emcee thanks all of her fans for their support and gives salutations to hip-hop, with a finalizing tone.
It's been a wonderful and awful journey all at the same time. Mostly leaning towards the wonderful part..lol. 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, she types. 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, Enjoysee yall around. Its been amazing. Thank you again
Her profile name on MySpace has also been changed to Jean Grae Saying Peace Out, and her only remaining profile picture is of her apparently blowing a kiss goodbye.
Jean Grae joined Blacksmith Music, Talib Kwelis label imprint under Warner Bros, in September 2005. She was set to formally release Jeanius, the heavily-bootlegged and delayed album produced entirely by 9th Wonder, later this year.
DX will keep you posted on any updates.
