Jean Grae’s iSweatergawd Is Boldly Refreshing & Produced by Quelle Chris (EP Stream)

Jean Grae makes self-releases fun. The New York City veteran MC surprises the masses on a Sunday (June 28) with the sneak attack release of iSweatergawd. Thanks to the Natural Resource alum’s Bandcamp page, the six-track EP is available for stream and $7 purchase.

The Everybody’s Pregnant band mates Donwill (Tanya Morgan) and Quelle Chris (who produced the EP) are featured, in an effort that is avant-garde, free-form, and speaks to real-life issues, much like the music that made Jean Grae so captivating in the early 2000s. Pay close attention to “38 Special” and “August 20th” for especially poignant lyrics:
