Jean Deaux Doesn’t Work 4 Free

Leader of the pack mentality Jean Deaux keeps a team, “a manaj, and she calls them all Nicki”. Sitting at the edge of a desk in flashy shades, acrylic nails, draped in diamonds directing people working back and forth for her is the perfect image. I would feel bad for who ever is lacking on the other end of that line in this Work 4 Me music video. It is clear she does not need you, “Think twice before you ask a verse from me” but you can work for her, she has got moves to make. Working on her own writing and adding filmography to her resume she directed the video herself with Stripmall, really working the brand she presents. The video itself is apart of a bigger EP project containing many of the familiar crew from Pivot, Zero Fatigue and independent artists like Phoelix,THEMpeople and AMACPacked with wavy & heavy beats and dramatic dialogue in between songs KRASH shows a real sign of maturity in her music and presentation. A real artists flourishing and making moves is rare to see yet Chicago is bustling with artists like Jean Deaux putting in a good name for her city and her work ethic.
