FemCee Jean Grae on Nelson Mandela's Legacy

via:MHP

I remember Jean Grae from her very early beginnings in Hip Hop. I've always admired her authenticity and courage to remain true in an industry that tries to turn you into something you are not. I did not know, she was South African, however. Check out her indepth interview on Melissa Harris-Perry's show on MSNBC discussing trials in the Industry as a woman and her thoughts on Nelson Mandela's Legacy in S. Africa. Enjoy! WATCH VIDEO
For Jean Grae is it truly deeper than Rap. The South African born, but New York City bred MC is known to provide the world an honest look at her life inside and outside the studio.

From her beginnings as one third of influential underground group Natural Resources to her solo efforts, Grae has always been one to watch. The Jeanius rapper's pride about direct roots to South Africa are apparent in several lyrical references through her solid catalog and a recent trip back to Cape Town for the Cape Town International Jazz Festival - See more at: http://hiphopwired.com/2013/12/10/jean-grae-on-nelson-mandela-his-legacy-and-her-plans-for-the-holidays/#sthash.3lKMVBN5.dpuf
