Featured Artist: Jay Electronica

07/08/2009

Writing a blog about Jay Electronica is to the say the least, behind the times. The hype in the blog sphere around Jay started at least two years ago. He has become a public figure on the internet through his girlfriend Erykah Badu’s tweets, and his disappearing Myspace page “album” releases.

Here is a little about him from Wikipedia:
Jay Electronica (Je’Ri Allah) (b. circa 1977) is a rapper and producer known for his use of percussionless film soundtracks as a background for his abstract lyrical style, and his associations with Erykah Badu, Just Blaze and Nas. He produced the first track, “Queens Get the Money”, on the 2008 Nas album Untitled. The unconventional nature of much of his music, and the lack of conventional release methods for that music, have since 2007 made him the object of much attention. He is perhaps best known for the piece of music Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge).
