Video: Jay Electronica – Dear Moleskine (prod. Just Blaze)

This shit sounds and looks amazing. Props to whoever shot it Decon‘s Jason Goldwatch. You might recognize some scenes from Jay Electronica’s various Twitter display pictures in it. It was shot in Nepal, see another pic at  FWMJ’s Rappers I Know.

UPDATE: This is the first leak from a collaboration between Jay Electronica and Decon. More information on the shoots’ location at Okayplayer.

  41. The-XFacta Says:

    Actually it must be me. Being that I’m the ‘old guy’ on Nah some of todays’ fashion and shit I can’t agree with. I ain’t never ever wearing tight fucking jeans period!! What the fuck are two hardcore niggas doing in some tight fucking Sasoon’s on? Dudes wearing rainbow colors on their jean pocket and pink polos could never associate themselves with me. I will never accept shit I deem to be suspect. Two men kissing is suspect all day long. Where I’m from and the times I grew up in, this shit wasn’t acceptable what so ever!!!

  49. landLORD Says:

    if you ever listened to Killah Priest- “Heavy Mental” (especially the title song) … you’d overstand that illah Priest fathered JayElectronica’s whole intergallactic holy-man motif, years ago … Electronica even sounds like K-Priest sometimes …

    still … Jay Electronica no lower than top 2 in the game, right now …

  50. cOLD Says:

    Mickey Factz who, Wale who, J. Cole who

    add Ghostface with the random samples that make a little story & shit (c) supreme clientele. I don’t think he invented that though. but that’s the last oldest thing I heard it on. random TV shows & shit.

    @ Shot Clock,

    I love Lu, so if you think they are similar in that way I can argue that’s why I dig their music.

    uh, jay elec and killah priest sound nothing alike. stop the madness

    i’ll co-sign on the nas influence. where are y’all seeing doom, in the rhyme patterns? i call reaching on that one. flag on the play.

  72. spirit equality Says:

    this video and song were stupid dope, by the way.

    only corrollary i can see b/t jay elec and KP are they both have deep baritones. you might as well compare jay elec to gipp if you’re gonna go there. it’s not like you’d ever catch KP doing a song with lil flip. smh.

  73. junclassic Says:

    Thats that sample from De la Soul’s “Sunshine”.

    Last track off Stakes is High. I LOVE THAT FRIGGIN SAMPLE!!!

    Jay Electronica is The Future!

  74. Nah Right » Video: Just Blaze Speaks On Jay Electronica Says:

    […] There’s some background noise so you should read iHipHop’s account: So Red got the opportunity to chop it up with Just Blaze real quick on working with Jay Electronica. Unfortunately due to background noise it’s kind of tough to hear. Just discusses how it’s difficult to lock Jay down because he’s such a free spirit. I mean Jay Electronica is the only rapper I know of going on spiritual retreats to the Pashputinath Hindu Temple and The Bodinath Buddhist Temple in Kat…. […]
