Jay Electronica is an unpredictable dude. He's released some of the most acclaimed stand alone tracks of the last few years, but has yet to release a debut album, and has been something of a recluse over the last little while, moving to London and rarely making public appearances. It comes as a surprise then, that the rapper has announced a new tour, and in regular Jay Elec fashion, he's not doing the usual rounds.

The elusive emcee will be going through both Europe and China on his new outing, which he announced today. It will be taking him to Zurich, Bristol, Dublin, London from March 6th to 14th, before setting off to Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, wrapping up on the 20th.

Could this mean new music is finally on its way? Check the full list of dates in the gallery above.
