    co-sign.

    even when she aint sayin shit, her ‘yeah’, ‘ok’ and ‘uhuh’s’ are way too frequent.

    and why does she randomly say ‘telephone’??

    I don’t know whats so hard to understand that some people’s goal isn’t money and fame.

    BTW, why these radio personalities ain’t in asking what the Nas collab is going to sound like? Or how many tracks will it be? Or how long were you homeless. Or something other than the delays, cause they gonna keep giving the same answers.

    Oh no doubt, I see the influence. But Rakim kinda dissappeared after his fourth album and Nas kinda picked up right where he left off. JE is dope without question, but Nas is as good a lyricist as he’s ever been right now. you can’t say that about Ra post 92.

  34. Ghost Writer Says:

  40. D. Billz Says:

    *dapz cOLD and Ghost*

    As a Comm. Studies grad, nothin’ makes more cringe more in the radio world than redundant interview questions. Just and ‘Lec gave these same damn answers in the Green Lantern interview.

    My Grafh interview that I wrote for the homie > any recent interview that has been posted

  41. Shooter Mcgavin Says:

    Are there any other rappers who dropped their debut album at 34 and went on to be succesful??

  42. hl Says:

    Are there any other rappers who dropped their debut album at 34 and went on to be succesful??

    Nope. But then again, most of all the best rappers out now are about that age or older and dont look like they’re slowing down IMO.

  43. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    act II=the innanets ‘detox’.

  44. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Oh yeah and this ain’t coming out anytime soon…smh @ me

  45. hl Says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if these niggas haven’t even started recording Act II.

  46. peteROC Says:

    but for real though, that stuttering at the beginning of the 3rd clip is hilariousss

    his arrogance is a no go!

    The whole “artist x is egotistical/arrogant” has no bearing on their ultimate success. If you’re driven and talented, you’ll get to where you need to be. Shoutouts to Jay-Z and Kanye, two guys who have already proven this a thousand times over.

    yeh true, but at Jay Elecs snail pace he’ll have his sophomore album out at 47, this guy might want to get some type of work ethic, time is not his friend at alll

    “People will say that now, and then when they hear it, it’ll stop.” – Just

    ^

    Yeah true, shits that bad right now. I check Nah 2 or 3 times a day and probably download 5 songs or less or watch 2 videos a week. Dudes saying Eskay sold out, I say this shit we call Hip Hop is on life support and kids build hype like they chasing ice cream trucks, get their flinestones push up ice cream, and don’t even know when the ice cream man gonna come by next time. More people hopped on the Exhibit C bandwagon faster than any other Jay Elec. song and I don’t blame them.

    This guy is no Kanye or Jay-z he is a procrastinator and as a 34 year old rapper that is not a good look!

    ^^^The band wagon was solely due to the Just Blaze production!

  72. Paul Cain Says:

    this also reflects badly on Just Blaze.
    A man who has his pedigree and catalogue shouldnt be taking shit from a Nobody!

    If a man’s decade long track record of hit songs isnt enough to make Electronica take heed to his advice he’s a fuckin chump.

    This is a business, Just and others have given you an avenue to release records YOU wanna make and you cant abide by shit? FUCK YOU

  73. really Says:

    Jay Electronica is a guy who willingly spent his life living homeless from city to city…so why would anyone expect him to have a great work ethic!

  74. MeenoMaano Says:

    he deserves to be the most anticipated rapper. can’t wait for anything that comes out with his name on it.

    Exhibit C and Just Begun are dope as hell.

    Is Just going to produce most of his album?

  75. Eviction Notice Says:
