Why do we like this?
You're probably familiar with the story by now. Jay Electronica pops up out of nowhere during the MySpace days with Act I and finesses mystique and superb skills to captivate the entirety of the hip-hop audience with roughly two dozen songs leaked in the course of a few years. He garnered the attention of all major label bigwigs, spawning a year-plus long courting session that was won by the corporate hustler himself, Sean Carter aka Jay-Z.

It's been almost a year since he signed with Roc Nation in an elegant ceremony in New York. In the time since, he has shipped about two dozen producers, musicians, photographers, writers, and assistants to South Africa for a few weeks where he recorded some of his debut LP. He also moved to London. He also has not released much music.

Today, out of nowhere, we get a continuation of material that won't make Act II (the first being the song for @fatbellybella, if I recall correctly). This track is produced by Jay himself, and is still in the demo stages as the vocals are definitely not professionally recorded and there are gaps in his verses. All that aside, this is still iller than everything on Rap Radar and Nah Right at the moment.

Take a seat, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the Jay Electronica show.
