Jean Grae

Much like the X-Men heroine she’s named after, veteran Brooklyn rapper Jean Grae has superpowers—lyrical ones, to be exact. After snapping necks alongside Talib Kweli, Cormega, Lil B, Tech N9ne, Joell Ortiz and Wale, she’s one of the most respected indie rappers around, male or female. An appearance in the Cypher is long overdue.
