Poo Bear – “Hard 2 Face Reality” feat. Justin Bieber x Jay Electronica

Hmmm… “Poo Bear Presents: Birthday Music” huh? Might not have given it a second thought, but that’s probably why artists drop singles. This “Hard 2 Face Reality” brought in Jay Electronica AND Justin Bieber?? On the same track?? Poo Bear covered the whole gamut of music out here in these streets and suburbs with that lineup, right? Undeniable Pop and Hip-Hop on a pretty cool track. Check it.

Jay Electronica – “Letter To Falon”

You know how a basketball commentator will say that an athlete’s performance is inspiring? Well, Jay Elec meant it and showed and proved by releasing this “Letter To Falon” track; being inspired by Kevin Durant’s play and playoff performance so far. This joint he dropped is the truth. Play the song to hear the proof. Oh, and for proof that JE and KD clicked like that…hit the jump.

Fan Video Of A Jay Electronica x MF Doom Collaboration (Video)

On Facebook: MF Doom shared Sick Rick’s video.

Take this in… immediately! Copies are showing up and coming down across the web. Also, take this for what it is. A rare collabo ‘performance’ by Doom and Jay Elect. Though it hints at the release of a collaborative track… Meh, maybe. It’d be nice.

Jay Electronica – “The Curse Of Mayweather”

I told you muthaf#ckers me and destiny had a date!
Jay Electronica

In the background… doesn’t it kinda sound like horror movie death screams? Apropos, since Jay Elect is a rhyme monster going for heads on this track – Zimmerman, 50 Cent (heard that ‘contemplating war with 50‘ line in there, right?), whoever! Listen N.O. flower on his latest entitled “The Curse Of Mayweather.” Gotta be a hated-for-being-the-best thing.

Jay Electronica – “Can I Kick It” (Holladay)

You hearing this previously unreleased loosey? Smooth with the roughness! Rough cut, probably never meant for mass consumption… but eff that. Feed on this dopeness in the stream above. Jay Elect only bless with prime select choice cuts. If he is asking “Can I Kick It” with the flow, y’all already know. Dope beat, too.

Spread the love… of Hip-Hop!

Jay Electronica Talks About His New Orleans Roots, Getting Back To His African Roots, Badu, & Music On Nigerian Radio (Audio)

Great interview stuff. Jay Elect gets to cover stuff fans might consider common knowledge in a new way. Doing so gives those not up on their Electronica studies a chance to catch up. First time in Nigeria. Appreciative and inquisitive interviewers on 99.9 FM The Beat (Lagos, Nigeria).

Super Star International Rapper/Producer Jay Electronica was live on The Morning Rush today with Olisa and Maria. The multi-talented producer talks about life at Roc Nation and whats it like to work with Jay Z and a host of others, he also lets us in on his relationship with [Erykah] Badu etc.

Director Jason Goldwatch Followed Jay Electronica To The Ends Of The Earth And ‘Into The Light’ (Extended Trailer)

An experimental, exploratory film based on Jay Electronica’s journey to the other side of the world; and the worlds therein. It’s called “Into the Light” (due out soon).

Best described as a meditation in un-learning. A movement in seeing without watching, hearing without listening, and the brave exploration of spirit.

Crazy impactful video in the clip above. Whatever it is going to be, it is going to be worth the watch.

Jay Electronica On Leaving Behind Drugs And Booze And Moving On At The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (Video)

Jay Electronica made his return to the mic at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival… then during his set he brought out his boss, RocNation head honcho Jay Z, to rock the Brooklyn Music Festival the crowd. Not bad. But Revolt TV got candid commentary from a repentant drug-and-alcohol addicted dreamer who is now living his dream. Watch the quick clip above about that.

Jay Electronica – “We Made It” feat. Jay Z

jay-z-and-jay-electronica-we-made-it-remixJust a few days after releasing the track ‘Better In Tune with The Infinite’, New Orleans native son Jay Electronica drops another this time featuring Jay Z.  I like the use of the soundclip from a scene in HBO’s hilariously funny  ‘Eastbound & Down’ comedy to start off the record, but other than the jewels Jay Electronica laced the record with I was somewhat underwhelmed with the song as a whole. It’s just an ‘aight’ song in my opinion & I feel it will also do a disservice to Jay Electronica because most people will focus their attention on Jay Z’s subliminal disses back at Drake on this record instead of on Jay Electronica himself.  Personally, I need to hear more Jay Elect, more of  Just Blaze’s quality production, & less guest appearances from other rappers on future Jay Elect jawns.

Comedy: Hitler Responds To Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ Verse (Video)

The chatter surrounding Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control” record with Jay Electronica has been slowing but the responses are just coming in. Ironically Hitler was the first to vent his frustration with many rapper’s delays in striking back back at the self-proclaimed new King Of NY. Hilarious.

Big Sean feat. Kendrick Lamar x Jay Electronica – “Control”

Big-Sean-JAYFORCE.COMThis is the song that damn near shut the internet down last night & STILL has people talking today. This “Control” joint produced by NO I.D. was supposed to appear on Big Sean’s upcoming “Hall Of Fame” album but it was allegedly pulled due to sample clearance issues. I feel Big Sean & Jay Electronica did a decent job, but it’s extremely clear that Kendrick Lamar bodied this joint something terrible. Just what the game needed.
