JAY-Z ON JAY ELECTRONICA’S ALBUM
Jay Electronica once shared that Jay-Z has been inhumanly patient with him. That’s an important point. Jay Elect, as you know, moves to the sound of a different drum when it comes to music making. The man is in no rush to deliver his debut LP. And his Roc Nation boss is cool with that. In fact, he loves it.
“I love that. I want to support that sort of energy,” Jay-Z told MTV News. “I want people to be creative and not traditional, not just a single this time [and] this time.
“You know, he operates at his own time, but the album is really close,” the ‘Young Forever’ rapper promised, before teasing what fans can expect from the debut album. “It’s exactly what it should be – it’s amazing.
“Him as a lyricist is almost scary, he’s scary good,” Jay-Z added. Big praise. [MTV]
