Jay Electronica “Google Eyes” (Live)


I found this clip about two weeks ago of the other Jay in my life performing a song I couldn’t ID. I emailed Electronica, and today he finally hit me back. He said, it’s called “Google Eyes” and he would send me a copy if I would only put up a snippet of it or label it a ruff version since it’s not all the way done. I complied. Of course, he never sent it. Guess you should look for that in another two weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the performance.

Added bonus, after the jump.

Looks like Kamaal has taken his Twitter campaign to the 1515 Boys headquarters. And he’s not feelin’ Curtis not being allowed to perform in their old hood.

“50 Cent is a success story we all should applaud. However you feel about him, you can’t deny him. He had something going on in his old neighborhood — our old neighborhood, because I grew up there too. He wanted to perform there. He can have the benefit but he can’t perform.”

“I think that’s a shot to morale,” he continued. “It’s a shot to somebody’s morale, who’s 15 or 16 years old. That’s an impressionable soul who sees 50 Cent, how he’s not able to see him perform in a way. I think the [city’s officials] are aware, but they think [50’s] performance may cause rabble-rousing, or get people to act out. That’s just an old way of thinking about folk, especially black folk. That’s what it all boils down to, essentially.” 

Bet you Your Honor is a big Otis Redding fan. Ha!
