Jean Grae Retiring

Once again another hip hop artist has announced their retirement via Myspace. Is this becoming an epidemic?

This time it’s one of the most respected female emcees in all of hip hop.

Jean Grae, who was planning on releasing “Jeanius” on Talib Kweli’s label.

The album was heavily bootlegged over a year ago.

She had this to say to her fans on her Myspace Bulletin.

“It’s been a wonderful and awful journey all at the same time. Mostly leaning towards the wonderful part..lol. Thank you for letting me share what I could with you and sharing yourselves back, as you have really been the reason that I kept on,” she types. “I will always love what I consider to be true hip hop music… from the bottom of my soul. I hope you will continue to distinguish those who are contributors to the evolution of Hip Hop and other black music as both an auditory stimulation and a culture, taking care that they are put in a position to do so.”

She ends the note saying, “Enjoy…see y’all around. It’s been amazing. Thank you again”
