    Interesting read.
    https://verysmartbrothas.theroot.co...10-years-old-jay-electronica-has-c-1834093991

    10 years since this dropped


    I would have killed to hear Act 2 (still would) but I'm glad we got the music that we did.

    My theory that I don't actually believe is that he's slowly leaking all the tracks from the 2012 tracklist 1-2 per year at a time until we have the full album lol. I believe 8/15 of those songs are out.

    I'd die to hear early 2010s Kanye on a song with Jay elec called "New Illuminati" :sadpepe:

    Arguably top10 lyricist that missed his chance to shine. Crazy how dope his verses can be, yet, newer songs are not that good.

    Third verse still amazing. Goosebumps.

    "Nothing involving Jay Electronica not making an album matters to me in 2019. I don’t care that he was exposed to Erykah’s alchemist poon and somehow managed not to convert to a wardrobe consisting of sweaters and triple-knit kufis in AKA colors."

    "I’m a fan of music; if I wanted fantasy from a n-----, I’d read some Octavia E. Butler novels."

    Yeah, he's canceled. Had mad potential, but didn't have the passion.

    Word on the street.

    Somebody did a mashup of possibly some old Jay verses over Nujabes beats. Haven't heard yet.

    (Already know this isn't official cause Jay is the laziest in the game)

    btw Octavia Butler is the truth if you're looking for some good s--- to read.

    Parable of the Sower is one of the most poignant books I've ever read.

    by no means the best quality but I think this covers most of what was supposed to be Act 2 circa 2009 - present. Tracks are ordered in the date they were released.

    Didn’t mos def or pharoah Monch reference this same author and book in a song? This is going way back many years so I’m probably misremembering but seeing your post sparked an old memory.

    Any idea what I’m talking about? This is gonna bug me until I figure it out.

    Side note, thanks for the recommendation. I’m reading Dune right now. Since I read Shogun every summer, I’m gonna try and squeeze this book in before summer gets here. Thanks!

    Wouldn't be surprised if they did! There's also a sequel called Parable of the Talents that's also good. It was supposed to be a trilogy but she died before she could write the third :emoji_slight_frown:

    If you like sci-fi (assuming you do since you're reading Dune), you should DEF check out Butler. One of my fav authors of all time. The Lilith's Brood trilogy is also fire, you should be able to get a copy of all three books in one for pretty cheap (and they're like 200-250 pages each so it's not super super thick)...$12 on amazon which is a bangin deal.
