    ^^ yup. Don't have high hopes for this but we'll see. The answer to "what the Fuck is a Jay Electronica" appears to have recently been answered on Twitter:

    If it's good, it's good.

    He spits brilliant verses, and supposedly Alchemist produced on this album. Assuming it's really coming, I'm optimistic.

    jay z is washed... always has been.

    jay elec is... rated for nothing.

    alchemist is predictable and boring.

    i have better lines about yu gi oh than jay elec.

    dont understand this hype at all.

    and he raps over a DOOM beat. wtf is this amateur hour.

    another thing i dont understand is how many shitty and similar producers are out nowadays.

    seriously this dude sounds like Mr. Muthafuckin Xquire.

    i remember hearing one Jay Elec verse way back in the day and it was hot. this wtf is a jay elec tape is like... nothing special.

    and the amount of people jizzing over this guy is unreal. i feel like im missing something but... im not.

    this style of hip hop is... dead imo.

    You really think Jay Elec sounds like eXquire?! Jay-Z was always washed?

    I mean the hype is more than he deserves, given that he could have made at least 3 or 4 albums since he first blew up, but I enjoy Jay Elec's stuff. He already has a bunch of songs that are considered classics without even dropping an album. I mean if you don't like him you don't like him but I don't think you can say on a technical level that he isn't a good writer or rapper.

    I'm honestly not sure what to make of Jay-Z's involvement, a lot of people are saying this is the only way Jay-Z could get Elec to finally release an album.

    i truly think his voice sounds like Xquires at times/most of the time, yes. easily.

    Jay Z has been doing the same thing since 97 or whenever. i cant even listen to Reasonable Doubt in its entirety anymore, i fall off during the end because im just like... okay enough of that. i cant listen to any Jay z albums front to back actually because its however many tracks of the same. the same the same. beats aint even any different tbh with you.

    dude has just made himself into a robot programmed to rap about the same stuff.

    and all this Jay Elec guy is "different" at is being more alien orientated with higher powers and supreme teachings of spiritual shit from what ive been gathering through his lyrics of his recent shit. and the fact that he's trying to be politically forward and progressive is a drag to me.

    Exhibit A was the first track i heard from him. and i like it cause of the Vonnegut line. and i liked that track at the time. looking back on it now, he flows a lot like Nas. Exhibit C too.

    but like one track, or two tracks over the amount of time he's had... does not make you a good artist/writer imo.

    Canibus is a monster, he has albums on albums if he's your cup of tea but he's got 2000 BC and no one can take away a classic album from an artist.

    Jay Elec aint got shit. who knows this album he drops could be godly. but im not into this shit anymore, if your a writer you write, you grow you make new styles you create and evolve.

    how many tracks has this guy released? lol. and then he comes out with an wtf is jay elec tape? that was what it was. (imo, lack luster).

    seems like everyones praising this guy for being lazy and unmotivated.

    shit. Earl Sweatshirt has some nice bars and knows how to write and the guy hates people/attention but he keeps coming out with projects because hes a writer. mind you i did not like any of Earls last two projects at all but you can say he gets a lot of hype as well like this guy does.

    at the end of the day, im a writer too and my references are better than Jay Elec's. thats word is bond

    I mean this album will have a huge buzz but I really can't call it. Jay-Z is unpredictable in terms of the quality of stuff he puts out.

    They already have some tracks together but I can't really imagine them fitting together over a whole project. Jay-Z is really smart but his style has such an emphasis on money, and Elec has rarely mentioned money in his raps.

    canibus was a lot more hungry than this guy and that wyclef album happened early in his career. a mistake obviously by canibus that he knew as soon it happened. all jay z is gonna do (if anything) is "executive produce" the album and oversee everything. wyclef actually made some shitty beats on that Canibus album. but canibus also had a lot of wack rhymes on that tape too. but im sure a lot of people would over those beats.

    that doesnt matter. this guy is just a lazy bum imo. or else he isnt as good of a writer/spitter that all you guys think he is.

    I don't hear that at all, I'm a big fan of exquire too. Nas is a fair comparison.
