Even though her deal with Talib Kweli’s Blacksmith Records fell through, that isn’t keeping Jean Grae from finding a new avenue to release her music. According to a recent report from HipHopWired, the veteran rhymer has launched a new multimedia company.
Jean Grae recently teamed up with Guy Routte, CEO of Pharoahe Monch’s W.A.R. Media, to launch a new multimedia company called Kids Are Gonna Die. This partnership between W.A.R. and KAGD will serve as a platform for the South Africa-born emcee’s long-awaited sixth and seventh LPs, Gotham Down and Cake Or Death.
Grae’s next solo albums aren’t the only projects that KAGD has lined up for the near-future, however. The company is also planning to produce a bi-weekly sitcom “Life with Jeannie” directed by and starring Grae, as well as release a comedic holiday EP from the underground veteran titled Ho X 3.
DX will keep you updated as more information on the deal comes to light.
