its a 1 minute rap and then the beat is looped another 3 more minutes


Just like I said, simple(ly) beautiful.

Sometimes its okay to let the loop ride and vibe the fuck out not everything needs to be a magnum opus. And if a rapper can pack that much emotion in one 16 then I'm not even going to try to front.

aight, good points. thats actually one of the big reasons i liked act 1 as much as i did.
dear moleskin is a beat you can absolutely listen to without any raps. the only thing i didn't really like was this part when it started all over again, with that break (around 2:40). that shouldn't have been in there, just at the beginning.
btw there was this version the song faded from that 1min something-snippet into a live-version, i think i like that even more than the complete studio-version.

This song is ridiculously underwhelming. First of all, we've heard part of it since '09, and Jay Electronica didn't even add on to it very much. (Plus, Just Blaze seems to be doing his best Madlib impression here, haha) You can't disappear for a couple of years just to release a song that isn't even new.

He's a good rapper, I'll give him that, but jesus man, you're not the second coming of Nasir Jones, so hop off yourself.

I blame Badu.

When artists do this kinda shit, I stop paying full attention & searching/looking out for any new news. I've grown very used to the "fall from hype" & I wasn't surprised he didn't change the landscape of Hip-Hop in any large/positive way.

Yeah, it's not like he's the only guy out there rapping. Especially now, with the average attention span of a rap fan being about 1/3 of a DatPiff mixtape, rappers have to come through and deliver before they fall off. People will move on and forget about you.

datpiff ? ha. i always wondered whats up with that site. no matter how good the artist, those mixtapes and especially cover-arts are always horrible...
ya'll makin some good points about that electronica guy. after listening to some of his material again i noticed, once again, he has a really good ear for (atmospheric) beats (hello mr. jones). i think appreciating and not having any expectations is the route to go.

I would argue against that. His work stretches beyond the structure of music - similar to what Nas was able to capture through Illmatic. Sure, Jay Electronica is only credited with a handful of official songs http://www.discogs.c...Jay Electronica but he has around 40 tracks scattered throughout the internet - its just a matter of us taking the time to search for them. I remember someone asking him in an interview why he's taking so long to put an album out and he responded by saying that he's reached this level of success while working at his own pace, so why succumb to the pressures of the music industry and mindless fans who seem to prefer quantity over actual quality.

If we are willing to call ourselves fans of this man's work, then we must respect his space and mind for creativity. He is a brilliant writer. Instead of asking for more, why don't we take more time to decipher what we already have of his. Jay Electronica is a laureate of both metaphor and symbolism.

why should we have to do that just to appreciate his work? nas put out an album and BOOM! it was dope, the stuff he does have out ranges from really good to below average, why not concentrate on putting just one project out, anyway time will tell he says the album has been sent to the label if it comes out and is the classic he says then we'l be eating our own words

You don't have to do anything. I don't know if you're a Dilla fan, but the situations are very similar in essence. Jay Dee has X amount of 'official' material out - - he also has an abundance of 'bootleg,' 'unreleased,' and 'unofficial' vocal features and productions scattered throughout the cosmos, mainly on the internet. I own a bunch of Jay Dee's 'official' releases, but that hasn't stopped me from willingly digging for his other work - - I do this because I love and can't get enough of his music. The same idea would apply to Jay Electronica. If you're a fan of his music, then you know he's made a lot more music than what has been released offically. If you favor his sound and messages enough, you wouldn't find anything wrong with going a bit out of your way to access his music.

I'd rather Jay Electronica's discography consist of two or three Illmatic's, than one Illmatic, one It was Written, one I am..., one Nastradamus, and so forth...

It's looking more & more like he's another example of a rapper from the "Hustler Generation", he's proving to be further & further from the image he portray' s in his art.....fuck all that shit I just said, I'm just butthurt he ain't putting anything out...

I'm sure most of you on this board have encountered this track before. I'm posting it for the few who haven't and dont quite grasp how amazing of an artist Jay Electronica is. I've been a student of the Hip-Hop culture for much of my adult life and have been truly enamored with only a select few artists - - Jay Electronica is amongst them.

Yes Jay Electronica is a great artist but he's just lazy. We've been waiting on this album for almost 3 years. We got one leak and a tracklist but no album.

I've kind of stayed away from all his previous work because P.E. taught me when I was younger, 'Don't believe the hype.'

I'm curious to know who are some of the artists you like?

Please elaborate...
