Joe Zimmerman
Joe Zimmerman

Jean Grae
Jean Grae
Jean Grae first performed under the moniker "What? What?" as a member of the indie group Natural Resource, providing classic singles such as "Baseball" and "Bum Deal." Then with her solo efforts: Attack of The Attacking Things, This Week, The Bootleg of the Bootleg and the 9th Wonder produced Jeanius, provided the platform for Jean Grae's ability to fit as many syllables as possible into short time spans. Grae has featured on tracks with Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Wale, Lil B the Based God, Phonte and Joell Ortiz and a long list of others that is impossible to fit into this bio. On a return to demonstrating her own abilities to produce (Jean has produced under the aka's Run Run Shaw and Nasain Nahmeen) as well as direct, Grae released video and song "Kill Screen aka Steve Wiebe" from her upcoming project Gotham Down. Twisting time and space, Jean Grae's much anticipated "Cake or Death" is set to be released second, though it chronologically precedes "Gotham Down" story wise. Her fate was ultimately changed forever with the actualization of Jean's passion for comedy and satire in recent stand up appearances and a self-produced, written and directed sitcom, Life With Jeannie, is in the works. Recently, appearing on the John Hodgman show and Low Times podcast with Daniel Ralston, audiences were treated to her special blend of music and comedy. To sum up, Jean is a superhero. She's better than everyone at doing everything. You should enjoy and support all of the things that she ever does, because she might disintegrate you if you don't.
