Introduce you to Jay Electronica

Jay Electronica is beginning to blow up as seen by the many different blog posts throughout the internet but after seeing him at Rock the Bells over the summer, I downloaded the music of his I could find and tried to do some research. Hopefully you have heard of him but here is a lil info and some of his music.

Jay Electronica is from New Orleans and is signed to Erykah Badu's record label.
While he has not released an album or even a single some of his music has been put on the Internet though his myspace which gets deleted every now and then as well as other various blogs and music forums. He has produced for NaS on the opening song of his newest album N***a.
Jay has released an EP titled Style Wars along with a sampler of various other stuff.

He also made a piece titled Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (the Pledge) which is a 15 minute composition in which he remixed the soundtrack from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He lets Just Blaze speak over it, then Badu, in the second section he raps over it and then splices scenes from movies as well the entire thing is done without any drums. Tt is a very impressive piece and is included in the download at the link below.
He was also a part of the Rock the Bells Tour over the summer and I was lucky enough to be there, he fucking killed it and then offered to smoke with anyone from the audience that wanted to.

Hopefully he will work on an album soon and I will give updates to that.

i will leave you with a link to a sick interview with him and link to download all his music that i have
