When it comes to Jay Electronica, the only thing the Hip-Hop masses care about is a sonically inclined appearance. Ever since the release of his only official project to date, his widely acclaimed 2007 mixtape, Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), he has kept fans in deep suspense for the release of his debut album. Thanks to social media and nagging hungry fans, the lyricist once again confirmed he has new music underway.
The oracular Roc Nation emcee shared a photo of himself on Instagram participating in one of his favorite leisure activities, biking, and while he received love for the dope visual, fans were more concerned for the coming of more and new music. One fan commented, “someone always has to mention this in every post but drop that album please.” Fortunately, Electronica did not hesitate to reply and comfortably confirm new music is on the horizon.
“no worries. soon come,” he replied.
Later down along the comment section, Electronica confirmed the coming of new tunes to another fan who commented, “So umm, new music soon? Or nah?” with a simple “yes.”
One of the most recent accounts of his lyrical madness is in November of last year, on Talib Kweli‘s album Radio Silence for the track “All of Us,” where he triggered a serious tease with bars like, “In a Worldstar society where all we do is look and watch…No intervention, policemen beating elderly women with evil…” He also exclusively dropped a self-produced single on TIDAL titled, “Letter to Falon,” which also involves the production smarts of The Bullitts, and Paul Epworth and later that year he joined forces with supervillain emcee MF Doom for “True Lightyears,” from Doom’s Adult Swim album Missing Book of Rhyme.
Most, if not all of Jay Electronica’s most recent lyrical hearings have been quite impressive. This is the main reason why the momentum behind a Jay Electronica album is much at large. His unorthodox approach to Hip-Hop’s rap element has left an unstoppable lingering thrill amid enthusiasts making him a polished cultural sphinx.
