Two of my favorite underground rappers, Quelle Chris and Jean Grae, are set to release a collaborative album titled Everything's Fine this March. I'm pretty excited about this for the following reasons:
- Quelle Chris is one of Detroit's true eccentrics, and has an understated but compelling rap style. He also dropped one of the best rap records of 2017, Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often.
- Jean Grae is one of the East Coast's most gnarly and versatile lyricists, and I've been waiting for her to drop something more sizable since her last couple of mixtapes in 2011 and 2012.
- The tracklist contains appearances from SNL's Michael Che, Nick Offerman of Parks and Rec, New York's own Your Old Droog, Denmark Vessey, singer Anna Wise, and even humorist John Hodgman.
- The lead single, "OhSh," is fire and features a rap verse from comedian Hannibal Buress.
