Jay Electronica – The Announcement

Here’s the MP3 of the song Jay performed at the Roc Nation signing event on Friday.

Jay Electronica – The Announcement (feat. John F. Kennedy) | Mediafire

[audio:http://nahright.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Jay-Electronica-The-Announcement.mp3]

Props to YN, who says the Jay-Z collaboration, “Shiny Suit Theory”, is coming sooner than you think.

UPDATE: Jay Electronica ft. Jay-Z & The-Dream – Shiny Suit Theory

Lyrics after the jump.

My view is aerial
Your crew inferior
My crew imperial
Mc Killers
Milk & Serial
Get it?
Forget it.
You’ll still be connecting the dots with smoking holes in your fitted
Those that got it be all at the shows throwing fits
The light from the dynasty sign froze all of the critics and nary a soul got on they frog toes ribbit

Shhh…
Was the night before the coming
Sugar plum candy coated lines for the dummies
Decoded hieroglyphics in the shrines for the mummies
We ain’t illuminati but out eye is on the money

My minds on the scripture
It’s beautiful, i see every line on the picture
So when the leaves Russel and the cock Crowes winter just know that the Black Gods mingled a bit
Then the fingers got pricked
Then the single got picked
Man I’m living out my brain I don’t dream about shit.
If I say dream, I mean Dream, Fresh not Hampton
I got a date with destiny I’m definitely not cancelling

Romancing
The Stone
The Roc
The Throne
The Elegant Celebration sent tremors through every nation
The Stars aligned like cars at grand central station

Elevation
Yours Truly,
My duty in obligation: The newly appointed ruler who moved with no observation like W.D.
Say my name on a record, W.W.III
I’ll put you niggas in a box like the WB
Here’s a footnote on the Blueprint
Whoms fucking with We?
Yeah
Bad grammar
Widescreen panorama
Paranormal activity seen in the camera

So if you want that turmoil
I’ll twitter facebook YouTube worldstar you
Rap radar nah right 2dopeboy you
Your plans is foiled
Your guns is borrowed
We living in tomorrow
A tissue for your sorrows

    diddy just quelled the whole shit, on some g shit.

    and make no mistake, he is pissed. But he is a hustler and will never play his true hand

    * daps Vet *

  6. cOLD Says:

    That is the key to hustling, is to know when and where to speak your mind. Naive and immature people scream out there emotions with out thought. To make it in business or corporate america or street hustin you need to have power over your tongue..smh

    ^ I’m just making a point, yes there is a time an place for everything. But if you wait for that time and place all the time, by then you’ve been shitted on and reduced to rubble. Some times you gotta strike while the iron is hot.

  7. RIGZ Says:

    LOL

    I can see why Diddy would be upset..he was rolling with Jay Elec b4 most people were fucking with him, b4 the Exhibit songs, bringing him to industry parties, blah blah blah

    And I remember Jay Elec saying he aint signing with any “major”that theyre gonna ride out the indie wave…thats probably why he never signed wid Diddy. Then this happens. LOL

    But *shrugs* its business. Puff knows that. Diddy aint that man’s father lol

  8. Rey Says:

    Let me guess…

    “Jay E must be writing for Hov”

    “Jay E career over signing with Flop Nation”

    “RIP J Cole career”

    “More like Roc J-tion (hov, cole, electronica)”

    “*shrug* At least it ain’t Diddy”

    Am I close?

  9. The Shot Clock Says:

    ^

    and again, JE is none of the above. he is a rapper, an artist.

    as a fan im only concernedwth his ability to speak truth through his music. i’m not his manager.i have nothing invested in his industry relationships. do you?

  10. Rey Says:

    oh… and

    “NaS lost.”

    There’s a big difference between speaking your mind on wax and yelling on radio stations at Dj’s and breaking relationships. Iceberg slim is saying that JE is a fire cracker that could possibly kanye himself out the game.

    ^

    but again, who gives a fuck? and kanye is at the top of the game so that doesnt really make sense..and why is he there despite his douchebaggery? because of the product.

    at the end of the day its about the art. JE is an incredibly talented emcee..in large part because he is not bowing to any sort of industry etiquette.

    i respectt him for that and i hope it never changes.

    the odd thing about YE is that, while his sound has become increasingly commercialized and molded for mass consumption. he continues to speak freely in the press. i wish all of our rappers, musicians and artists in general, were that way. i think it’s their duty as artists to break the rules.

    ^

    No one is saying no one should speak their mind, but there’s a fine line between speaking your mind and ethering yourself. Even Jay told Kanye to keep his mouth shut. When I say Kanye himself out the game, I’m talking about JE going off on tangents or business relationships that will hurt his career in the future. Given JE’s age and and status in the game He has a lot more to lose and is doesn’t possess the talents that Kanye has.

    Kanye lost money for what he did. If you’re going to be that bold then you really need to stand behind what you say and not apologize. JE could say anything he wants but he has to remember he’s on a label.

    ^^^

    This is where you wrong, JE is a business and he is in corporate america, most mcs never realize they are a business and they are in corporate america and thats why they fail. He signed a contract and was giving a large sum of money. This my friend is business and not you and ur friends getting high and freestylin

    Roc Nation is corporate America. Being a rapper is a profession, and the music industry is a business.

    ^ the whole 2 different worlds- spritual and physical, and how weed when in moderation allows you to peep both, without getting lost in one or the other? The advangtages of peeping both realms will keep you in harmonious accordance with the universe.

    I like this analysis, I’m actually in the process of smoking weed in moderation, because I smoked everyday without care and put shit out the way that I NEEDED to tend to… blame a young nigga getting in the game of smoking. But now I’m spacing it out and smoking weed on occassions and getting the best highs while still getting shit done, very hard for a former pot head though…more insight from cOLD or any other nahggar on this little revelation would be accepted..

    MC Killers
    Milk and Cereal

    Milk and Cereal initals are MC
    In the movie Milk, the protagonist makes a pun on how Cereal and Serial sounds alike

    So he’s saying he’s a Serial Killer to rappers by eating them like a bowl of cereal with Milk (movie reference)

    The eye on the money line was pretty slick too. Took me a while to get it. (dollar dollar bill, yall)
