New Music: Jay Electronica x Tone Treasure “Jazzmatazz”


Jay Elect was in the giving mood this morning and released this new tribute to Guru of Gang Starr. Unfortunately, the track is not from Act 2: Patents Of Nobility (The Turn) as mentioned in the iTunes description. The wait continues.

    it was all right good messeage need a stronger message go hard all ready wtf.

  • Trav1

    Now after listening to it I definitely am feeling the track. Jay Electronica is one of my favorites right now just hearing a new track is out excites me. I think he’s one of the important missing pieces that was missing from the game. Just my opinion.

    Dang…This song is really nice. Jay Electronica may never be recognized as the nicest mainstream wise, but he definitely gotta spot in my top 3.

  • jayefan

    My style is like a shot of Jack Daniels, a baby grand piano
    lighten a hopkin smokin cigs strummin’ on the banjo.
    The son of mans the son of a gun with hella ammo
    Sheriffs shootin’ Bob Marley, John J Rambo.
    Six sextillion, 19 million, the holy pyramids say we all a lost children.
    Voodoo for the pilgrims who bring weapons and conceal them
    they silence you with force and then Indoctrinate the children
    Yo gaba gaba!, augmedina? Jabwa?, blow up your apartment if you don’t observe the Sabbath.
    I look the devil in his eye and say abracadabra
    then drown em in the mighty light his brain couldn’t fathom.
    scrapin every day just like fight club, a thriller and a smooth criminal like Mike was

    I like his use of extended metaphors. But I dont understand why every song he makes takes so long to get started. I can do without the MLK part at the beginning, I heard that speech like a million times in HS thank you very much.

  • KC Baboso

    sounds eerily like guru at the beginning. song is dope cant wait for Act II. Props to YN on the JayElect article in Respect too very interesting read

  • Word

    @ Word

    the exact things that annoy you about his song(s) is part of what i love.

    who hates on hearing mlk talk about not fearing death merely days before his assassination? yo honestly that shit is tear-inducing for me. u don’t understand why? i’m sure he’s doing it deliberately even though he knows the short attention span nation will hate it.

    he makes you sit through omg a minute of a jfk speech? omg. jesus how much of radio format songs can u take? blahblah. no point in me getting combative, though. i like it.

  • wow

    lol this aint even a guru beat….its a instrumental from the group home album

  • QUEENZ

    Man, I love this brother’s music, Kingdom Music as he calls it. I hope he never compromises his art for that shit that Diddy was talking to him in Miami (hear Shiny Suit Theory). This is powerful, and when it drops I’m coppin a couple copies just like I do when Nas drops. Peace to Jay Electronica and keep doing what you been doing. Your train is running on schedule.

  • BLACK777

    Peace 2 the God Jay Electronica

    This = God Hop

  • timothy adems

    jayefan…he said “Ahmedinajad would blow up your apartment” -As in the leader (tyrant) of Iran. LOL not whatever you typed. J elec is crazy man, his cultural references are pretty interesting. Smart guy

  • 5%er

    JaYeLecT Reign Supreme Over Everything.WE WANT A TRACK WITH NAS.I’ll even pay to hear it.

  • meTHATSwho

    ^^^^ I agree

  • MARS

    ……Not impressed. Son is getting all this shine off a minimal amount of product. Even his mixtape was mostly beats and interludes. He’s got like 3 SONGS!!! Exhibit A and C and The Ghost of Christopher Wallace. Dont get me wrong..He’s special….but he’s still on proving ground.

  • MARS

    I am glad that he’s holding it down on the Black Culture side of things. Thanks for that Jay.

    i can do with mlk too only because dude is the only person, besides rosa parks, who we hear about throughout our forced bullshit education.
    mainly cus mlk preached non violence and other groups that that werent so non-violent are obscured to fixed non existence
    but i get what j.e. was going for with the symbolism just dont know if the uneducated are so aware…

    Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord

    Boom bash dash I had to break I had to get away
    Pack my bags
    Headed for Greyhound it was a Monday
    Time to start my mission
    I felt that burning feeling in my soul
    I had to listen
    I had this reoccurring dream from the stage
    In a suit with a fade I had set the game ablaze
    And they threw me a parade
    I stacked a little change and took my family out the caves
    But I was trapped in the maze
    Like a lab rat
    And at the bottom of the barrel where they keep the crabs at
    No Geico, no Aflac
    Nothing to fall back on
    But the streets where niggas cussed out the police
    And sold their crack on
    Better known as back home
    Where they treat the Arabs and the Spanish and the Blacks wrong
    There he go with that song
    You may be tired but I spit what I’m inspired from the lord of the worlds
    Cause the devil is a liar

    Say say, I’ve seen the lightening flashing
    Yes I did
    And I’ve seen the thunder roll
    But you can’t, you can’t keep me down for long
    Cause I’m getting stronger
    Cause I keep getting stonger
    Oh yeah, oh yeah

    Here we go

    My style is like a shot of Jack Daniels
    A baby grand piano
    Lightnin Hopkins smoking cigs strumming on the banjo
    The son of man’s a son of a gun with hella ammo
    Sherrif shootin Bob Marley, John J. Rambo
    Six sextillion, 19 million
    The holy pyramids say we all a lost children
    Voodoo for the pilgrims who bring weapons and conceal them
    They silence you with force and then indoctrinate the children
    Yo gabba gabba, agma dina jagua
    Blow up your apartment if you don’t observe the Sabbath
    I look the devil in his eye
    And say abracadabra
    Then drown him in a mighty light
    His brain couldn’t fathom
    Scrappin every day, just like Fight Club
    A thrilla and a smooth criminal like Mike was

    Say say, I’ve seen the lightening flashing
    Yes I did
    And I’ve seen the thunder roll
    But you can’t, you can’t keep me down for long
    Cause I’m getting stronger
    Cause I keep getting stronger
    Oh yeah, oh yeah
