JAY ELECTRONICA – LETTER TO FALLON

Jay Electronica songs are scarce. For reasons unknown to most, we still don’t have an album. But Kevin Durant urged Jay Elec to drop new music and when one of the best NBA players around makes a suggestion, you do it. With that comes “Letter To Fallon.” Enjoy and don’t hold your breath for any new music anytime soon.

JAY ELECTRONICA SAYS THAT HE MIGHT DELETE ACT II

The highly anticipated and long overdue Jay Electronica album has been lingering long in the minds of hip hop heads everywhere who have been awaiting a full body of work from the emcee. However, during a performance in NYC for CMJ, Jay Elec said the following…

“I was just backstage talking about that with [Jason] Goldwatch. We were talking about the delete button.”

Wait, what? After all this time? He could be teasing us but you never know with Jay Electronica. With the project being so old, perhaps he’s wanting to scrap all the older material in favor of something new.

Is it RIP Act II?

We’ll just have to wait and see.

JAY ELECTRONICA – MAN UP (UNRELEASED)

Apparently recorded during George W. Bush’s first term in office (2001-2005), this unreleased Jay Electronica track doesn’t necessarily sound a decade old. Jay took to twitter to acknowledge the song’s existence but wasn’t released intentionally by him.

Oh well, enjoy.

JAY ELECTRONICA – INTO THE LIGHT TRAILER

The trailer for an upcoming Jason Goldwatch directed short film “Into The Light” has hit the web. Due out in 2015 courtesy of Mass Appeal, the film follows the hip hop nomad on his travels across the globe. Check out what the director had to say below.

Jay Electronica is full of mystery, and like a magician, his character lends itself to new ways of seeing things that would seem impossible to many. Several years ago, Jay and I traveled to the other side of the Earth. We left a piece of ourselves there. In exchange, we brought back something entirely new, and the images that follow are a glimpse into that magic for everyone who’s curious.

Traveling across strange lands, we were invited to attend sacred ceremonies of sacrifice and parading celebrations of ancient descent. We trekked together towards the horizon and explored crowded monasteries, solitary mountain top temples, slums of filthy laughing children, and rivers running with blood and flower petals. I documented as Jay walked a river of burning human bodies. We crash landed a helicopter in the Himalayas, and he delivered rice and clean water to a school in a refugee tent city. The result was a collage of movements and emotion.
