Jay Electronica is one of the most talked about, hyped, and anticipated rappers of the moment -to emerge from the underground, and rightly so. He possesses extraordinarily sharp lyrical skills, a remarkable and mystical vision, and new theories about y/our collapsing world you might want to hear. Jay is a native of New Orleans’ Magnolia Projects, home of Juvenile and bounce music, not that you’d be able to tell that by listening to his music, at least not immediately – he “spent the past dozen years roaming nomadically between nearly as many cities.”
Nas cosigns and confirms Jay Electronica will appear on his untitled album as a producer and as an emcee.
“Hero” produced by Polow da Don is the official single for that album.
