    FATALITY…..

  4. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    I think Nah makes an impact on the way a lot of rappers think, helps people step their game up. But Jay Elec, if you’re reading, you got this. Just leave it all on the track, give your best, and drop the album. Drop Act II and drop more music. No need to do a million mixtapes. Just complete the work that’s already been started within you.

    LF: after having a daughter for a couple weeks now, i can confirm that it is the best shit ever. whenever i meet a broad who never knew her father, all i can think is: that dude is an epic fail on top of a fail. shit’s disgustin. daughters ftw.

    *climbs down off of soap box*

    ^ easily

  17. hl Says:

    Jay Elec is that dude (nh), but what is he doing? Nigga we already know you’re dope, you don’t have to campaign. Drop the fucking album. Nigga doing more interviews than Badu and she actually has an album coming out.

  18. NovemberEnd Says:

    Elec is overplaying this delay tactic in Act 2….when it drops niggas may just front on it off GP….

  19. London Bloke Says:

    stop it, I’m 40 minutes in and he hasn’t done that shit once

    ^

    40 minutes in[n]?! Aint that longer [n] than the summation of his entire musical output thus far? LOL

    Say word he hasn’t stuttered. I heard of a face, but this nicca got a voice for radio?

  20. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    *daps Chea Guevara the Revolutionary*

  21. Beezy Says:

    Benji B looks exactly what I picture KzA looking like…assuming thats him in the pic dapping up Jay

  22. Furiou$tylez aka I cant be godbody smoking these Newports Says:

    so its not cool to talk about Jay Electronica’s stuttering anymore?

    remember that nigga Drag-On is/was a heavy ass stutter-er-er except when he rapped & “acted”…

    I’m think like 21 or so. I would consider bronzeville as well if I can find something decent. I want one of the Pod Majersky loft spaces. The architecture is crazy but I’ve heard there’s a lot of leaking.

  25. Furiou$tylez aka I cant be godbody smoking these Newports Says:

    yo this shit is SEVENTY MINUTES LONG???

  28. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    LF: thank you to everybody who downloaded and listened to Opening Convocation, on some real appreciation. Usually when I make music, I just email it to people I know, a small circle of friends. This time around, I didn’t send it to any of my friends. I knew that Nah was a better proving ground. I knew that as long as I didn’t get the J. Valentime treatment, I would be okay. I’m shouting some of ya’ll out in the liner notes of the album, seriously.

  29. London Bloke Says:

    * puts out two tracks*

    * put out zillion interviews*

    * continues with 70 minute interviews*

  30. Van Sertima Says:

    Now Jay is a perfect example of someone who should talk less and do more. I would like complete silence from Electronica until the album. I miss the time when the emc only talked through music.

  31. Sleep AKA YOUR MANS NOT ME IM ON A HORSE Says:

    bronzeville is a setup…the realtor is gonna take u over there early when all the niggas are still sleep, in school, or in court…

    then in 2 weeks youre gonna come home and find your apartment ramshacked and all your belongings missing…

    oh btw…
