In X-Men, Jean Grey is a mutant from New York with the power to levitate things with her mind. In hiphop, Jean Grae is a rapper from South Africa with the ability to bend language to her will, effortlessly connecting words like googolplex and Budapest to form complex punchlines and metaphors that call to mind early Eminem and Canibus. In X-Men, Grey, with the help of Dr. Xavier, eventually learns to control her unruly telekinesis and use it to her advantage. On her third album, This Week, Grae, with the help of hot producers 9th Wonder, Joey Chavez and Midi Mafia, figures out how to channel her lyrical intensity into a viable myth through a very personal, often dead clever account of a supposed week in her life. Bangin' as all hell, and yet this still feels like just a teaser for Grae's true breakout record, her upcoming full-length collaboration with 9th Wonder, Jeanius.
