New Music: Jay Electronica x John F. Kennedy “The Announcement”

Here’s the CDQ of the song Elect debuted at his Roc Nation signing event at The Box. Look for full footage of Friday’s show tomorrow. Also look for “Shiny Suit Theory” sooner than you think. Jay season begins! Lyrics on the other side.

Link

My view is aerial
Your crew inferior
My crew imperial
Mc Killers
Milk & Serial
Get it?
Forget it.
You’ll still be connecting the dots with smoking holes in your fitted
Those that got it be all at the shows throwing fits
The light from the dynasty sign froze all of the critics and nary a soul got on they frog toes ribbit

Shhh…
Was the night before the coming
Sugar plum candy coated lines for the dummies
Decoded hieroglyphics in the shrines for the mummies
We ain’t illuminati but out eye is on the money

My minds on the scripture
It’s beautiful, i see every line on the picture
So when the leaves Russel and the cock Crowes winter just know that the Black Gods mingled a bit
Then the fingers got pricked
Then the single got picked
Man I’m living out my brain I don’t dream about shit.
If I say dream, I mean Dream, Fresh not Hampton
I got a date with destiny I’m definitely not cancelling

Romancing
The Stone
The Roc
The Throne
The Elegant Celebration sent tremors through every nation
The Stars aligned like cars at grand central station

Elevation
Yours Truly,
My duty in obligation: The newly appointed ruler who moved with no observation like W.D.
Say my name on a record, W.W.III
I’ll put you niggas in a box like the WB
Here’s a footnote on the Blueprint
Whoms fucking with We?
Yeah
Bad grammar
Widescreen panorama
Paranormal activity seen in the camera

So if you want that turmoil
I’ll twitter facebook YouTube worldstar you
Rap radar nah right 2dopeboy you
Your plans is foiled
Your guns is borrowed
We living in tomorrow
A tissue for your sorrows

    Man so everybody gets their panties all lighted up when they here that this electronica dude signs to The ROC, but nobody gave a sh!t about the guy before the announcement. He drops a song and all of a sudden hes the second coming of hip hop, oh yea and the song is like mad average, i bet if any other random rapper drooped something like this you guys would go eh! that was nothing special, but hay he signed to the ROC (whatever that means, that people follow artist not for their own talent but for the label he singed to, LOL) oh and all of a sudden rhyming matters, and the meaning in what he is saying. So whats wrong with Hip Hop, it’s that it has the most spoiled fans, always wanting the next artist, the next song, leaving the genre in mediocrity.

    dont see whats all the hype is abt… i dunt find this guy lyrical at alllll!!

  • EXHIBIT C

    @ MADSKILLS I think it’s safe to say that people have been getting excited about Jay Electronica since he released ” Exhibit A” a couple years ago which to many, was frikkin’ DOPE. There isn’t any new, other Emcee in the mainstream right now spitting on J-E’s caliber in terms of subject matter and poetry and visceral grit. It wasn’t until he released ” Exhibit C” last year that he started to get his full buzz.

    The reason people who have followed him ( since Exhibit A ) are so excited about this signing to the Roc, is, 1) Jay-z doesn’t just sign anyone, he’s Jay-Z. 2) it’s a Major success move for J-E, because he came out of nowhere and made his own name just like any other of your favorite rappers from back in the day: pure rhyming skills and no gimmicks. And it’s nice to have label mates like Jay-Z, J.Cole and Kanye West, just to name a few3) with a major backing him ( he had NO LABEL ) he can finally have the support to create his long-awaited first solo album. That’s why people are excited for the man, he made it. Get in the know, or get gone, lol. And get off his dick. The best thing you can do, is not support him, and most-importantly not come to every blog about him and give him so much of your energy. Don’t type so butt-hurt. it’s just music. Your opinion is subjective, just like mines.

    So Dope.

    I really hope the dummies can find an appetite for hip hop after ingesting those sugar plum candy coated lines for so many years. This is the return of the hip hop that made u want to hit the Internets to get what’s really going on. Every line is so potent. “My duty and obligation: The newly appointed ruler who moved with no observation like W.D.”, if this means what I think it means, then peace to the brother Jay Electron and peace to Shawn Carter for financing the movement. “Say my name on a record, it’s WW3″… you’ve been warned.

    Apparently you missed Exhibit A, Exhibit C, Uzi Weighs a Ton, The Levees Broke, Eternal Sunshine, Googly Eyes, Trolly Stop, Dimethyltriptamine. and more.

    We all can’t sleep on hip hop bro, so you can go back to to your hole and shut the fuck up, especially if you missed out on everything Jay Electronica has done in the last 3 years.

  • Nah Kid

    Jay Electronica got beat for days his rhymes are a lil boring but at least he got wordplay. I think Jay signed him on some next Kanye shit and Puffy salty he aint gonna be gettin free beats from Elec like Jay gonna be. HAHA

  • yo

    lol anyone who thinks he is overhyped doesnt know who jay electronica is…

    how can you be overhyped when you didn’t have a record deal all those years?

    overhyped is someone who sells a bunch of records and gets radio play but CANT spit

    thats the complete opposite of this guy

    The beat they had on the actual announcement was 10x hotter. But of course the lyrics are sickening. Jay ahead of his time, easily 2099. Can’t wait to see how this unfolds. He comes wit lyrics and concepts better than 90% of these rap dudes 95% of the time. Real math

    It’s the return of the #TheBlackKings

    Madskills what are you talking about. Let me clear some stuff up for you
    1. People definitely knew about jayE before this song. Obviously you didn’t
    2. Lyrics and meaning always have matter that’s why nobody likes soulja boy
    3. Jay is not an average artist, people say he’s one of the greatest TO COME because of what he says and how different his songs are from another. He’s finally a new rapper that doesn’t suck.
