We at Rap Genius are extremely proud to introduce our new weekly podcast series, Outside the Lines With Rap Genius, hosted by RG Editor SameOldShawn. Each week, we’ll bring you a new exclusive, in-depth interview with a great rapper

We know you’ll enjoy this series, which brings you the kind of fascinating, probing questions beloved by rap nerds and, as it turns out, the artists themselves:

For our inaugural episode, we bring you a wide-ranging conversation with one of our favorites, Jean Grae. We talked to her about her upcoming album Cake or Death, her feelings about Jay-Z and Eminem, what Louis C.K.’s recent success means for her, why it’s good to have a bit of the old ultraviolence in your songs, and lots more

Jean, who has been a big supporter of the site since she first heard about it, gave us an incredible interview that we are honored to share with you. She is just as insightful, clever, and funny in conversation as on record

Stay tuned, as future episodes will include the RZA (next week!), Nas, Kool Keith, Soul Khan, Invincible, Pharoahe Monch, and more. You can listen to the first episode of Outside the Lines With Rap Genius below, or you can subscribe to us on iTunes or find us over at liberated syndication
