Yesterday there was a lot of discussion and excitement surrounding Big Sean's leak "Control (HOF)" mainly due Kendrick Lamar's name-dropping verse, not to say Jay Electronica doesn't also deserve props.
At the beginning of October we heard DJ Premier confirm that he will produce a full Nas album one day-- which got us excited, and also got us thinking about what other albums we're really, really hoping will drop in the not-so-distant future.
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.
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've seen Jay Electronica return to music in recent times, just yesterday he appeared alongside the New Royals on "Minutes of Moog" and put the internet topsy-turvy with his verse alone, as he is warrant to do.
Jay Electronica isn't one to shy away from his thoughts on twitter. A few weeks ago, he took to the social media platform to vent out his frustration about so called “thugs" and crooked cops. Well on Friday, he was back at it with some more choice words during a fan Q&A.
Jay Electronica is an elusive character. He's been working on his highly anticipated debut album, Act II: Patents Of Nobility (The Turn), for so long it's almost has Detox status. Yet his fans remain loyal, even though he rarely pops up on the blogosphere.
Though DJ Rashad was a more well-known figure in the dance music world, he had his fair share of friends and admirers in the hip-hop sphere. Yesterday, the 35-year-old DJ was found dead in his apartment, with narcotics and drug paraphernalia allegedly found near his body.
During a recent, in-depth interview with Nahright.com, Mac Miller discussed the nature of his collaboration with Jay Electronica for the track 'Suplexes Inside Of Complexes & Duplexes' from his imminent "Watching Movies With The Sound Off" album.

There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of redacted lyric leaks from Jay-Z). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Well, today is the day that Lil Wayne's album I Am Not A Human Being II officially dropped. Although we're positive it will sell given Weezy's huge fanbase, we're not so sure about the content there within.
