Jean Grae's Jeanius album will be given a proper release by Blacksmith/Warner Brothers. The 2004 album, entirely produced by 9th Wonder, was leaked and then shelved and fell into the annals of music as one of the "what if/unreleased" albums. Due to sample clearance issues, some of the beats have been changed to protect the innocent. But with 9th Wonder at the helm, it's in good hands. Either way, it's good news for fans and soon-to-be converts.

Also, Jeanius will be released with four different covers. All parodies of classic hip-hop albums. Personally, I don't know if I like the Black Sheep cover better or the Public Enemy. Then, again the Das Efx and Raekwon one covers both look fantastic. A consumer's dilemma.
