I can’t lie. I bang Jay Electronica like it’s the end of the world. There are others of course…like the magnificent…Sade but he’s what I’m feelin’ the most right now.
I’m actually upset because I had to reformat my blackberry memory card…deleting 500 tracks in the process. As a result, I won’t be able to listen to Victory is in My Clutches on the way home from Cleveland in few weeks.
Dude is as poetic as he is professional. Sick with his lyrics in a way only a man or woman seeking knowledge futuristic can understand. If you are a man of the times, all that booty chatter and noddin’ ya head to that 22 inch rims wack rap trash, then it’s time to be educated.
I’ll go out on a limb and say I haven’t been this affected by a under appreciated talent since D.O.C. Straight up. Of course, this discussion doesn’t have to be about Hip Hop. I could be jazz, rock, rhythm and blues…just don’t come down the lane with no pop. It will be sent back in ya face. Like Cleveland Cavaliers color analyst Austin Carr says…”Get that weak stuff outta heeeeerrrre!” Will Jay Elect ever drop an album? That remains to be seen, but if what he has out there is any indication of what is to come, this cat is gonna blow holes in the game the likes we might have never seen considering the current state of the game.
Some of Jay’s videos follow.
Drop your science. I hope this develops into a good discussion.
