A Writer's 21st Century Memoir.

Keep Livin by Jean Grae

Turn on some Jean Grae, and you’d think you were just hearing poetry, or at least that’s what I hear. Jean Grae, born Tsidi Ibrahim and formerly known as What? What?, is a hip-hop artist who rose to prominence in the underground hip-hop scene in New York City and has since built an international fanbase. Grae was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and is the daughter of South African jazz musicians, Sathima Bea Benjamin and Abdullah Ibrahim.

Keep Livin by Jean Grae is actually one of a collection of excellent freestyles put as a lengthy bonus track on Jean’s The Bootleg of the Bootleg EP, this track uses the beat of Scarface’s “My Block” as a basis for a sober meditation on depression.
