After dropping the Cookies Or Comas mixtape last summer, Jean Grae has been working on her forthcoming album Cake Or Death. Fans haven't hear much about the project other than suggestive tweets from the New York emcee, its first leak "U & Me & Everyone We Know" and a promising video trailer.

Now, as Grae is wrapping up Cake Or Death, she’s ready to share it with her fans ... LIVE.

The veteran New York spitter is slated to put on her first full set in over a year at NYC's venue Drom on My 24th, during which she will preview songs from her long-awaited Blacksmith Records debut, due out late summer, as well as songs from her extensive catalog.

Coming off her incredible trip "home" to South Africa for the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, Grae's upcoming NYC show will also include DJ Mr. Len (Company Flow) and her band The Wait A Minutes with special guest, Mela Machinko on Vocals.

Doors open at 9pm, and tickets are available for $15 (advanced) Drom is located at 85 Ave. A (between 5th & 6th). For more info, visit Drom.
