Jean Grae + Blue Sky Black Death = Dark. Angry. BRILLIANT

Despite an emotional departure from hip hop earlier this year, Jean Greezy seems to have pulled a Hov-esque pump-fake and is back on the scene (for now anyway). This time, she teamed up with the production duo Blue Sky Black Death to collaborate on an aptly named release The Evil Jeanius, due on 9/30:

The heavy, brooding sound of BSBD seems like an odd choice for a hip hop record, but when you couple it with Jean Grae when she's in "go hoard" (not "hard" - "hoard") mode, it's a natural fit. BSBD sounds like... music that would be playing in some kind of alternate reality in which Queen of the Damned meets Mark Ecko's Getting Up video game, if that makes ANY sense at all. It's kind of hard to describe, so just listen to this:

Yeah. Hopefully you get the gist of what I was saying - in any event, I'm looking forward to hearing more from this collabo. Hopefully it's not the last we hear from Jean Grae - I have a feeling that it isn't.
