Jean Grae Feat. Mela Machinko – “The Bridge”

11.22.10 7 years ago 6 Comments

Jean’s musical output hasn’t increased as much as I hoped since she linked up with Talib’s Blacksmith movement. Sure, Jeanius got its proper release, but other than that fans have been patiently waiting.  What I am grateful for are the strides her flow has made in the mean time and, while not an equal trade-off, it’s something that will help her down the line.

Employing a nimble double-time flow on “The Bridge,” the second leak from the Year Of The Blacksmith Community Mixtape, Jean’s seducing somebody somewhere or at least I think so. Thanks to RJD2’s piercing synth driving this smoldering backdrop I was instantly reminded of Donald Byrd’s “Flight Time,” which means it’s gonna take me a few more listens to sort everything out.

While new Jean Grae song which doesn’t bring us any closer to Cake Or Death, the wait is one song more enjoyable nonetheless.
