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

    Lies. You listened to this one, and you’ll listen to the next.

    With that said, pretty dope track, but more a calm before the storm, not a full blown hurricane.

    ITS GONNA BE A LONG BUT GREAT WINTER.
    Jay thats a good move to RocNation.
    I’m stacking up on tracks all winter

  17. a.d. Says:

    i like the fact that he doesn’t put out mad music. it’s like an event makes u really listen and anticipate the next one. no one is fucking wit that man. the beat is crazy.

  18. 45% Says:

    This is probably true…. So Hov is gonna cake off it instead of diddy

    ^I doubt it Cash. Peep the jigga man’s game.

    “your single was 99 cents, Mine was 4 bucks”

    That nigga is the Creflo Dolla of the rap game. I’m surprised Ye got that nigga to do a free track.

  20. Tenacious Says:

    Dope track. lets hope he keeps the music coming now.

  21. A chick Says:

    Roc Nation runnin things in 2011

  22. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    This is cool, but it’s not worthy of Act II.

    Those songs are gonna have to be Exhibit A & C on HGH to live up to the hype.

  23. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    With that said, pretty dope track, but more a calm before the storm, not a full blown hurricane.

    ^I agree. I was a dope ass verse but it didn’t really have the GEMS we’re used to getting from him.

    Oh, and when is that next mix tape coming nigga?

    How absurd are our expectations for Jay Electronica that he can spit “The light from the dynasty sign froze all the critics,” “The stars aligned like cars at Grand Central Station” and:

    Your plans is foiled, your guns is borrowed
    We livin’ in tomorrow, a tissue for your sorrows

    on a song sampling the speech in which Kennedy announced we were going to the goddamn moon and we’re all still just like, “Meh.”

    I say they’re too high. And yet, Jay Elec might exceed them.

  29. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    Jay seemed mighty thirst to put that diamond in the air too.

    Bleek don’t even throw that shit up like that anymore.

    ^That signing bonus will do that to you bro. Think about the offer and contract that Diddy Probably proposed. That shit probably looked like something penned by the devil himself equipped with a “your soul is mine” clause. The Jigga man probably came with something a little less bearing see as to how he don’t suck his artists dry and not pay them as well as not needing them to write material for him either.

    Elect was probably relieved to see that Roc-Nation contract over that Bad Boy contract. He just went with the best team.

    Not to mention the roster that Diddy got Vs. the roster that Jay got. Very big difference. The back door master franchise fee (or whatever they call back to company expenses) with Didddy was probably out of the fucking roof.

    In my opinion (which ain’t much) Elec won by signing to The Jigga man. Just off the strength of personal representation.

    ===================================
    A couple dope lines but overall, this song ain’t fucking with 90% of this man’s discog.

    Electronica songs usually cause the hairs on my arms to stand upon first listen.

    This one didn’t do that.

    on a song sampling the speech in which Kennedy announced we were going to the goddamn moon and we’re all still just like, “Meh.”

    Fuck do I care about a Kennedy sample?

    And Jay is more charismatic.

    You know what?
    I think Jay Elect would have won more if he signed with Puff.
    Ppl are talking about Puffs history with artists on his label, but Jay-Z’s isn’t much better. We are talking about artists on HIS label, not the Def Jam artists….where is beanie, teairra marie? Freeway, young gunz? Puffy has an excellent resume when it comes to artist developement, all of his artists get number one records, platinum albums…its just that most of those artists weren’t signed for longevity purposes…but who can complain? Im sure Yung Joc knew he was just gonna be a one hit wonder. He has made his millions. Puffy would clearly take a diff approach with Jay elect since he is clearly an artist that will have longevity (think Mary j blige). Puffy is the producer of Mtvs biggest 2 shows…run house and making the band…he could take Jay elects exposure to the next level…Jay elect would be puffys only priority….where as on roc nation he competing with Cole, Alexis Jordan etc. There are so many ppl on roc nation whos albums will never see the light of day, from Bridget Kelly, to Rita Ora, range to that country singer dude….
    In terms of budget, how much did Cole get for the who dat video??, and that was supposed to be his breakthru single smh. Puffy would drop 3 mill on a video EASY, rapping on top of the statue of liberty and fireworks and airplanes and shiny suits and shit (see: Hello Goodmorning video). People really think Jay is some type of god like figure. The only artist on rocafella that made it is Kanye, and that’s because he made his own beats and is a creative pioneer. And even Jay says he was reluctant to sign Ye at first, it was purely because of Ye’s stubbornness and the fact he was the main producer for rocafella that landed him the deal. Granted, a Jay-Z cosign will go alot further than a Puffy one…but I think Puffy could offer more. Plus…Puffy is the reason Jay-Z was even interested….nobody was fuckin with elect prior to puff…if it wasn’t for puff, ppl woulda completely forgot about elect after exhibit c (when he dissapeared). Look at what Puff did for Waka Flocka, Rick Ross and Minajs careers this year alone.

  87. Free J Says:

    J Cole mixtape is fire, Kanye cd is dope and if shit pans out the way its supposed to this could be the best career move for Mr. Jay Elec. props to camel for signin him

    oh and this song is ill

    ^

    In NO amount of climate and on any label would Beanie, freeway and young gunz would sell. Their time has passed by. Some artists are meant to have buzz or fame for all their lives. I find this argument of where are they now kind of ridiculous, considering that many labels have dropped acts or acts have been let go because of business. You know how many artist Sony signs and doesn’t put out? This is common. Jay-z runs a business not a homeboy hookup label. Puff didn’t do anything for waka and Jay-z was the first people to co-sign rick ross when no one knew who he was. Puff jumped on the rick ross bandwagon after he dropped two hot albums. Jay-z mentioned being excited about listening to ross coming onto Def Jam before hustling came out.

    Why sign to someone who is going to ruin your future and not let you have creative control? Being on jay-z’s label it’s up to you to find your success, there is no babysitting going on. No smacking up people, no yelling, just straight business, nothing extra. Jay-z is like Belichick, just do your job.

    They were nobodies, who now never have to work a 9 to 5 job the rest of their lives, probably purchased their parents a house, toured made money and saw the world. They told diddy they no longer wanted to fuck with him. So if you look at it they did well.

No smacking up people, no yelling, just straight business, nothing extra. Jay-z is like Belichick, just do your job.

    Thats because Jay-Z doesn’t do shit. He will give you a verse, and listen to ur album when it’s finished…but that’s about it. How many times has Jay-Z gone out of his way to promote J.Cole? Shittt, Jay has done more for LeBrons image than Coles.

    Jay-Z letting Electronica do his own thing isn’t necessary a good thing. Let’s keep in mind electronicas work ethic appears to be horrible. It’s the Roc Nation staff that would be directing Jay Electronica, Jay-Z just owns the label and reaps the financial rewards.

    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.

    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

  208. 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?

    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..

    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)
