I have been sleeping on posting about Jay Electronica, but I heard a few more tracks of his this weekend and I just can't contain my enthusiasm any longer. The New Orleans native comes with a style that melds gangsta and backpack, and has some of the hardest hitting beats I have heard in a while.
"Get that type of media coverage Obama get, spit that Kurt Vonnegut, that blow you brain that Kurt Cobain, that Nirvana shit"
"I swam down shit's creek and came up clean, with a new lease on life like Andy Dufrane"
Exhibit A (Transformations)
Reflection Eternal- Just Beginning (feat Jay Electronica, J Cole and Mos Def)
Exhibit C (Ted Smooth Remix)
