New Music: Jay Electronica “Road To Perdition”

jay electronica

Let That Bitch Breathe.

The road to Jay Electronica’s Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn) has been long and tiresome. But today, relief comes in the form of this leak featuring Jay Z. Unfortunately, Hov’s vocals are merely a sample from, “Success”.

    Dude can spit but his voice is just fucking boring. He really got bars tho. I feel like if Kendrick touched this beat he would have a million flows and attack this shit like a killer. Idk. Jay miss me sometimes

    • K.dot finatic

      Kendrick would sell his mother’s soul to be on Jay’s level. Period.

      • Donn

        I disagree. It wasn’t Electronica verse ppl talked about on Control. I love lyrics, I think lyrically Jay is a nicer emcee then Kendrick but Kendrick is has the overall art down. The cadences. The flow, the delivery, song structure, beat selection. I’ll put it like this, Jay Electronica is a rapper. Kendrick is an ARTIST. Jay is just gonna rap that is all he can do but Kendrick will create melodies, harmonize. Then rap, then add a chick in the background, then do the alien voice then a bridge. He is a more well rounded artist

        • Dashing28

          well put

        • Kingly_Caracter

          YES.

        • THE REAL mac DIESEL

          YOU’RE ABOUT TO MAKE B.DOT RUN TO HIS ROOM AND CRY!!!! HA!!!!

          DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

        • Starpoint feat Renee Diggs

          Well said.

        • Kev

          You must be mixing something potent with your chronic.

          Jay Electronica is a better artist, Kendrick is a better rapper. Listen to all the music both of them put out. Theyre both amazing artists at the end of the day but Jay Electronica is like Lord of the Rings and Kendrick is Harry Potter.

          • Jake Zero

            So that’d mean Jay is a better artist AND a better rapper because Lord Of The Rings is better than Harry Potter on every single level

        • Kendrick finatic

          Kendrick verse on control was 5 minutes of gibberish. Elect verses are always full of substance and truth. Period.

          • Da Business

            Stop it

            I’d agree that Jay’s verse was overlooked but, Kendrick’d verse being gibberish is nonsense.

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            Kendrick’s verse is overrated. People just took the name calling lyric and ran wild with it

          • Da Business

            U have a point B. Dot. But overrated, is a bit of a stretch, my g. That verse shook up the culture and it wasn’t even a diss record. He was giving them props and n!99@$ got all in their feelings. Yes, the name drops took the track to another level but, even if u take that out, it’s still a dope verse.

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            But like Drake said, how does that verse even begin? Nobody knows. The verse as a whole wasn’t memorable, just that lyric.

          • Da Business

            The beginning of that was more/less a bridge. The verse itself didn’t start until he said “Tell Flex to drop a bomb on this bitch” I’ll give that about the brigde. But the rest of the verse, nah. U saying that hurts my heart B. Dot. We’ll just have to agree to disagree.

          • cmonhomiewemajor

            it is overrated, but Jay Elec lost to Sean and Kendrick on that song

          • I think it was a shock tactic that worked for him b/c until that point he’d never done that . If Game would have done that exact verse bar for bar name for name, no one would have cared cause that’s Game’s style/gimmick

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            Yup

          • GetReal

            Listen to his Monster Freestyle then come back.

          • GetReal

            Listen to his Monster Freestyle then come back

      • yeah

        That’s not realistic.

      • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

        lyrically? Like, put a beat on and who has better bars: I think Elect will have him beat

        • brza

          Agreed! Kendrick is nice with it but Electronica spits like a Ginsu

  • I need that album this year.

  • LēTeck

    Spitting that real shit

  • SEEALEJO

        haha if that’s how you feel

  • kudahfee

    This guy is one of the biggest myths in hip-hop history i really don’t understand this dude I fuck wit this guy heavy but its very frustrating to be a fan

    • brza

      Exactly! If I saw him on the street I would be the first to say “Seriously what’s the hold up?!” Waiting on him to drop has been mad frustrating to say the least

    • FREE MAX B

      I been waiting on an album since like 07 when I found his music.

  • Idiot

    this is called ‘Real Magic ft. Ronald Reagan’ you dumb fucks.

    • JP

      You can delete this comment now, we’ll forget it happened.

  • Beach is better.

    Hope Dash is listening… Jay sent his shooter.

  • lostprodigy

    This guy is about as full of shit as ELZHI both with so much potential but running from the pressure of being who WE want them to be or is it US the public who is truly full of it waiting to tear them off the thrones we place them on.

    SAY WHAT I WANT WHO CARES ABOUT YOUR COMMENT.

  • B.Thot

    what do you mean unfortunately B.Thot? Nobody cares Jay-Z isn’t on this song but you. You couldn’t wait to get more Jay-Z jerk off material

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

      JUST THE MERE MENTION OF JAY’S NAME MAKES HIM DAMP!!!! HA!!!!

      DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • TimeChange

    Dope Music, but still what is this guy waiting on.

  • SillyFlowJohnny

    Th King is back!!!!

  • 400_Degreez

    Who cares!!! Drop a fuckin project

  • Drexler

    how has this guy not dropped an album? everything he puts out is fire whether its the beat or his bars. he might be the best rapper to never release an album

  • TylerOkonma

    Drop that Album Jay E

  • L Train

    This nigga get on my nerve dropping this suppose to be jewel. Gtfoh he can rap and all but he’s a very boring entertainer. He acts like he’s gona change the state of hip hop Gtfoh with this bullshit. U missed the boat elect, the reason your not dropping a album is because it won’t do no numbers. He’s just tryin to stay relevant just like every other new school rapper in the game right now. He is nothin special

    • cmonhomiewemajor

      “He’s just tryin to stay relevant”

      he drops 1 song a year you idiot

      • L Train

        And ya point is what? 1 song is all u need these days to stay relevant stupid, and nut slurper like u and presto. You need too stop ball clappin nigga you faggot ass pubic hair muncher. Stay the fuck out my lane

        • cmonhomiewemajor

          Haha so much gay shit here

          I think youre projecting

          • L Train

            Only a faggot nigga would say what u just said

    • JP

      I bet you he will do numbers though if he drops it. Anybody who has ever been a Jay Elec. fan is going to cop the album. Not to the mention the ridiculous stand Jay has, they’re going to support him like crazy. Every rapper in the game respects him and they’re going to support him. All they got to do is make a simple album shoutout to their fans, and many of those fans will probably cop. As far was what kind of numbers, I don’t know but I bet he’ll sell more than Big Sean.

      • JP

        stans***

      • L Train

        If he was gone do numbers he would have dropped his album. He and every other rapper knows that if u don’t drop some goofy ass trap bullshit your going to do double wood

        • marty mcfly

          You more concerned with numbers then content which is why you don’t think he’s dropping jewels and why you think he can’t change the game with his lyricism… I hope Act 2 Patents of Nobility drops and puts your opinion to rest. Whether he does numbers or not really isn’t of much concern to the people interested in what he has to say.

          • L Train

            This nigga job title is a entertainer, he has to pay his bills with the money that he make from his job if he sell 1 cd how the fuck is people listening to him gone pay the fuckin bills.

          • marty mcfly

            I don’t think the people listening to his music care how much money he has. When Nas drops an album most times he don’t sell much and nobody gives a shit. However Nas is valued for his music not how many units he can sell first week. I don’t think Jay Elec will have any problems whatsoever selling units but if so I can’t say I really give a fuck. Its about the music to me.

          • GetReal

            the only problem is Nas had his reign, you’re out of your mind if you think this guy Jay Elec doesnt care about numbers, he’s a business man before this rap shit, which is evident by the fact he hasnt dropped shit, if he truly cared about the art he would just drop an album instead he’s on this “1 verse a year like I’m andre 3000 to keep me in the best conversation” shit miss me with the BS

          • marty mcfly

            I don’t think he cares about number to a degree in which you me be implying because if that were the case he should make sure his music is wack so it can sell alot. The way he raps suggests he’s much more concerned with what he’s saying then how much it sells. Even if he was concerned with numbers? Who cares because that still means he has to delivery music and also he was a rapper first before a business man because he wasn’t getting paid to rap years ago.

          • marty mcfly

            If his album drops and sells zero copies, thats not really my problem cause I just care about the music and Jay Elec is only gonna trip to a degree as well because he’s making money regardless. I’m sure he doesn’t do shows and tours for free. I’m just saying overall if you take an artist like Jay Elec and you really concerned with numbers? So much so that it becomes more important then the actual music? Then you not really paying attention to why Jay Elec can tour with no album in the first place… The music is powerful. Plus the chances of him not selling is slim. If this dude announced that his album was dropping on Tuesday… Fools would be lined up around the corner for this guys music.

          • GetReal

            I myself could careless about the numbers, Im saying that Jay Elec does and that is exactly why he hasn’t dropped his album, there is no grand scheme, he isn’t being strategic, he’s simply scared, the way he has tricked you niggas into putting him in some magnificent goat like pedestal is extremely impressive Im not knockin it, its just like minds cant be fooled, I see right through everything going on with this dude (who CAN rhyme)

          • marty mcfly

            So you talked to Jay Electronica about why he hasn’t released an album? Now he has said himself that the reason why he hasn’t released an album is for purely artistic reasons and that nobody his holding him back but himself. He said he wants it to be the best music possible so he just keeps working on it. Now if he is concerned about numbers? Who cares? Thats all I’m saying. I can’t see why because clearly an army of people are willing to buy the album but if he’s worried about numbers it doesn’t make a difference because the music still has to come out anyway. The reason he’s on a pedestal is because people listened to his music. Does he force people to listen? No, but they do cause the shit is dope. If Jay Elec is like somewhere really stressing over numbers that can’t even be generated without an album coming out first well then he’s a retard cause that logic don’t even make sense. He’s doing shows all over the world and has the entire Hip Hop culture going ape shit over his music? If he’s really scared (of basically being rich and successful because at this point sells is certain for him), then maybe is crazy. Anyway, thats not an issue for me, thats his problem if thats even the case.

          • marty mcfly

            Like JE has thousands of people personally coming up to him praising him all over the world and its been that way for years… He makes a song and people act like Jesus is rapping. If he’s worried about numbers then he’s crazy. He has to be in the top ten most likely to do numbers with a debut album in Hip Hop history. People act like Jay Elec is like 50 Cent, Em and Drake levels of hype when he drops a song.

          • marty mcfly

            Not to mention this guy has Jayz, Kanye and Diddy on his album… and the support of RocNation and the entire Hip Hop culture in a frenzy. If he’s worried about numbers? Common sense should tell its no need to worry about that at all. His album would be an instant classic almost the same hour it dropped…

          • GetReal

            instant classic? his music is great bro, but you’re stanning a dude a who doesn’t even have a albums worth of music

          • marty mcfly

            He does have an album worth of music and I’m not stanning either because where have you been for the last half decade? You know how many people fuck with his music? It aint just me fool. Yes the album would be an instant classic. Unless its as bad as Iggy rapping because the anticipation for it alone puts it in the class of instant classic. Its almost a certainty that every hip hop head on the planet will listen to that album. That alone is crazy.

          • marty mcfly

            This guy has about 50 songs all over the net but he’s been touring the globe for years with no album, he hardly does any interviews and he has like barely any social media presence… This dude has been all over the world off the strength of Exhibit A and C and Eternal Sunshine. You are either delusional, a hater or you must think I’m the only one thats interested in his album? In all cases you’d be wrong. Right now its people that act like they aint tripping off his music but let that album get a release date? People gonna be losing they damn minds for that album. Thats just common sense if you’ve been paying attention all these years.

          • marty mcfly

            Nas’s debut is the reason why he even had a reign and that album flopped.

    • GetReal

      this is the realist comment I seen, I agree he has bars, but he isn’t revolutionary at all its other artists just like him out here, Lupe spits the exact same shit when he wants, and a host of other artists, only problem is Jay is scared he will drop and flop (which he will)

      • marty mcfly

        Lupe and Jay Elec don’t spit the same shit and Jay Elec is revolutionary for three reasons, style, his position and the attention he gets when he raps and because of Eternal Sunshine and Exhibit C… The point of those two records is revolutionary. Not revolutionary in a militant way but revolutionary in a ideological way because he crossed religious beliefs in order to expose a commonality between them. That just does not happen on record in Hip Hop. It wasn’t happening like that when those songs were released and the attention he got for those songs were because he had struck a chord with people all over the world with those songs. THAT was indeed “revolutionary”…

        • GetReal

          like i said Lupe spits the exact same shit when he WANTS to, don’t try to tell me different, I know what I’ve heard

          • marty mcfly

            No he doesn’t. I get what your trying to say but thats just not the case but lets say Lupe and JE spit the exact same shit? Ok well that means they would both be dope artists which is a win win anyway. Anyway I’ve yet to hear Lupe rap like Jay Electonica or JE rap like Lupe. They sound like two completely different people to me with two completely different subject matters. Lupe rapping about delivery pizza, and video games and basically everything under the sun. JE sticks to a certain context almost every time he raps.

      • marty mcfly

        I think you think it matters if his album flops? Which in Jay Elecs case it doesn’t. Illmatic flopped, Reasonable Doubt flopped but those albums are legend to people anyway.

  • Castor Pol

    Kendrick bit Jays whole style period!!! kid even had Dre soundin like Jay on The Recipe

    • GetReal

      fuck no

  • Gage

    FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • whats the significance of the HOV sample ? it seems aimless. Jeezy’s adlibs on “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” were dope and and well integrated and didnt say “featuring Young Jeezy” — just seems odd — track dope tho

  • Stanfield

    5 years too late.

  • BrooklynInDa90s

    Peace to god Jay Elect. He need to drop that LP, this Detox wait ain’t cool

  • Rob Lo

    Nobody cares anymore….either drop them album or move on…5 years too late

  • Gigi

    Why have Hov on here saying “I got these n*** breezy… don’t worry about it”? It brings no value to the song at all. Jay needs to realize how amazing he is an artist…he could put anything out at anytime and shit on everyone in the process…i believe in Jay Electronica …I just don’t know if he believes in himself?

    • realtalk82

      I hear you man. I love this record but Jigga is not needed here

  • Globalgrindintern

    Garbage. Garbage. Garbage. Using Jay Z’s tired ass in it was a waste. Yo…If Jay Electronica doesn’t want to create music, be an artist & have fans then he needs to stay his lazy ass out in London somewhere…so he can hop a flight do shows in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Sydney, Mexico, Dubai, Johannesburg … You get the point…
    Iggy Azalea and Jay Electronica need to both sit their low self esteem asses down. All they do is bitch & complain. Iggy just “quits” IG & Twitter like every day. Iggy’s mad cuz she knows she’s wack, she didn’t write shit & and that she’s a fake.
    I reserve my comment for Jay Electronica for now. Iggy just made me sick to my stomach.

  • The Incredible Creation

    The Jay Z vocals on this are annoying… unneeded lol zZzZzz https://theincrediblecreation.wordpress.com/

  • Fire…

  • blackbeltbreeze

    this year: kendrick, drake, jay elec, kanye. we already knew they were coming hungry. didn’t expect the lupe or the big sean to be in top tier form. welcome surprises. i’m thinking tink and chance will push the envelope. but there’s 2 more slots for top ten album music of 2015. now i’m wondering if wale will bring it. but who else? hmmmm

  • tipp0183

    ok this year set the stage for a good album. go ahead and drop it now, people are listening.
