It only took a decade for us to get a Jay Electronica album. But A Written Testimony is finally here with eight of the ten songs on the album featuring Jay-Z. At a total combined age of 93, the duo proves that age is nothing but a number as they deliver quality bars over banging production. One of the standouts is “Flux Capacitor” as Jay-Z addresses his relationship with the NFL and Jay Electronica just goes ape.

If you’re looking for something to snap your neck to, look no further than MICK and Chi Duly’s mixtape titled “7:18″ where the duo deliver a project described as “JAY-Z’s most lyrical and personal verses and juxtapose them with DJ Premier’s most dark and precise works.” My goodness is this good. Just under 57 minutes of bars from Hov and beats from Preemo. 33 songs in less than an hour.
“This mixtape is a love letter to the hip hop we grew up listening to,” MICK says. “This is for the people who grew up analyzing the b-side of every Gang Starr and Group Home single. This is for the people who listened to Jay’s ‘A Million And One Questions‘ a million and one times.”
