“Everything’s fine.” It’s an automated pleasantry. An emotional shorthand that spares us from unpacking the truth in casual conversation. But – everything is definitely NOT fine. Jean Grae and Quelle Chris deliver this message with a deft balance of withering satire, abstractism and knife cuts on their first full-length hip hop album together as longtime creative partners. As the phrase repeats itself throughout the album it becomes a twisted and empty self-help mantra that’s harrowing and often hilarious. Jean Grae and Quelle Chris are polymath MCs, producers, writers, directors, comedians (and so much more) and ‘Everything’s Fine’ will be released March 30 on Mello Music Group.
