The vaunted Jay Elec/DOOM collab has leaked.

Over the weekend, DOOM shared a fan-recorded video from his remote SXSW set in which he shared an unreleased collaboration with Jay Electronica. It sounded pretty amazing but fans wondered wistfully if the HQ version of the song would ever be released. Given Jay Elec's history of releases, it seemed unlikely.

Lo and behold, the song has surfaced on the interwebs. It's not an official release. But goddamn if this track doesn't sound amazing. Flute and Spanish guitar and sampled audio footage from archived speeches -- this beat screams DOOM.

Quotable Lyrics

7000 kilohertz
With every verse I heal a Earth
With every line I drop the tears of man into a cloud and a fine mist until it bursts
And rain from the brain
Snowflakes for the pain

-Jay Elec
