    Jay Electronica is usually reclusive from the hip-hop scene, especially the hip-hop blog scene. However, it seems Big Sean's "Control (HOF)" is the exception, as the media-shy rapper spoke to Revolt TV about his verse and the record in general. Jay Elect praises it as a good thing for rap, as many of his counterparts have already done. "I like the song and the stir it’s causing," the Roc Nation artist said. "It’s good for rap music."

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of the already infamous verse Kendrick dropped on Big Sean's "Control" this week). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

We heard a version of "Shiny Suit Theory" days after Jay E. signed with Hov; that was in November of 2010, and, as far as we know, a version of the track will still appear on the album.
