In 2009, Jay Electronica rocked the rap world when he released “Exhibit C.” The bombastic-sounding track produced by Just Blaze created buzz for the New Orleans lyricist. Laced with lyricism and bravado, Jay Electronica was a groomed emcee with a polished skill-set. His rugged flow and sharp intellect made him an intriguing prospect to JAY Z, who later signed him to Roc Nation in 2010. So, seven years since “Exhibit C,” we haven’t been blessed with one project. The question is why?
It’s been six years since Jay Electronica signed to Roc Nation and he has only dropped new singles periodically. He teased us with “The Ghost of Christopher Wallace,” “Better in Tune With the Infinite,” and his “We Made It,” freestyle with JAY Z. While those were very dope tracks, it never materialized into an actual project. This is worse than Detox people. Jay Electronica has gobs of potential and is capable to knocking the hinges off the proverbial door of opportunity. Instead of doing that, he has transformed into a Twitter demon.
His fingers are putting in more work than his damn self. He’s on the cusp of becoming a baby Kanye — if he hasn’t already — with his epic rants. I mean, at least Ye gave us TLOP. We still haven’t gotten one project from you Jay!
