7 Deadly Femcees: FlapJak / Jean Grae

female rap coloring book cover

This week is all about showing the ladies mad love. We’re teaming up with our home girl, Naps the Cat; graffiti artist and creator of the Female Rap Coloring Book, for a seven-day series that will showcase seven different female emcees. Don’t think we’re going soft either; each of these women spit enough fire to scorch any male competition.

For our 7 Deadly Femcees series we’ve asked each rapper to choose and color in an emcee from Naps’ coloring book that has influenced them and their career.  Each day we’re bringing you a profile of a new dope femcee on the rise and a song to add to your Bump That playlist. You can thank us later.

Jean Grae Flapjak White

FlapJak

For day uno, we present FlapJak, hailing from Nyack by way of Detroit and currently residing in Brooklyn. FlapJak is also known as the first lady of  the Inner City Kids crew. With her fierce rhymes and fiercer demeanor she definitely has no problems holding her own in a crew filled with males. Keep an eye out for this one. If you think her track is hot wait ’till you get a glimpse of her raw talent as a live performer.

Describe your music style? 

My music style is Flapjak. My music style is ketamine. My style is subject to influence, It could change because I change. Rap is a dictation of my internal chaos that rages constantly within. I try to spit up the essence of how I’m feeling. I want people to want to live in that essence whatever it may be conforming to one style isn’t how I do I don’t want to exclude any type of listener from my music.  I am a hip hop cartoon character in the newest edition of Looney Tunes.

Why did you choose Jean Grae, what influence has she had on you and your music?         

I could have easily chosen MC Lyte or Queen Latifah from the coloring book but I didn’t because I wanted to promote the evolution of female rap from my own generation. Forward moving progression. Jean Grae represents the future of female rap, plain and simple. The woman knows how to articulate her heart of darkness. Lyrically she’s so dense that most people don’t know how to digest her music. It takes niggaz years to get what she’s saying, cryptic rhyme patterns and hieroglyphic beats, what more do you want?

What new projects are you working on?

I’m currently working on a mixtape with my team, The Inner City Kids and on my own mixtape YUNG FLESH coming soon.

Take a listen to her song Hellhound, and let us know if you are feeling the Inner City Kid’s first lady below.
