Jay Electronica’s Eternal Sunshine

I took Eternal Sunshine and I looped it.

No drums no hook just new shit.

Jay Electronica is, in my humble view, the most promising MC out there today.  Although having no official albums under his belt, the bootleg collection What the Fuck is a Jay Electronica?! has been making the rounds for a year now and waking heads up across the land.  Today I realized that I’d been keeping this hot treasure to myself and needed to share the love.

This song is what grabbed my attention first, being a fan of the titular film (and it’s dreamlike score, courtesy of Jon Brion) and always keeping my ears open for exciting new talent; suffice to say I was hooked.  There’s nothing I can say that would pursuade a listener more than the music itself, so have a listen.

With beats driven by the likes of Madlib and J Dilla, the songs released so far are not only deeply satisfying rhyme and rhythm excursions, but point the way to an incredibly successful career.  I can’t wait for the day this man is known more for his incisive talent than simply as the husband of Erykah Badu – and that spot on the calender is quickly approaching.

Give his “What the Fuck” collection a try.

[and keep your eyes and ears out for anything this guy drops, official or not.  check his twitter for info.]

  1. Great post and blog man! Just wanted to mention that his best song IMHO is not included in this disc. It’s called Exhibit A (Transformations). Give it a listen; great production from Just Blaze!

    • Thanks for the heads up, I thought that one looked unfamiliar when I was looking up the details on this! Checkin that track out now… I’ll probably edit this post to include it, or just make a new post asap.

  2. *cough*G-Side*cough*

  3. Oh also this guy is supposed to be in a new rap group with Mos Def and Curren$y.

  4. Awesome.
