Jean Grae Biography (Wikipedia)

Tsidi Ibrahim, November 26, 1976), known professionally as Jean Grae (formerly What? What?), is an American hip hop recording artist, emcee, producer, actress, and comedian from Brooklyn, New York City. She rose to prominence in the underground hip hop scene in New York City and has since built an international fanbase. She is known as an important figure in hip hop and popular culture. Grae, unlike many rappers and emcees, take to rapping about nuances in Black heterosexual relationship in an effort to "rupture the normative narratives of black sexuality" and resist the bondage of heteronormativity. Evident of this is how she adopts the language of men to "assert her mastery over lyricism and her desire for both men and women". Nonetheless, her unique music style, gritty rhymes and lyrical mastery has earned her recognition as favorite emcee among many rap artists such as Talib Kweli, Jay Z and Black Thought of the Roots.
