Jay Electronica popped up this weekend in the KanyeToThe fan forum before visiting the comments section of his YouTube page to field questions and talk Act II: Patents Of Nobility – the long-awaited forthcoming LP that Jay Elec says will be coming within the year. The latest appearance from the enigmatic New Orleans MC found him touching on a wide range of subjects including his favorite verses, Kanye‘s Yeezus LP, the tracklist for his upcoming project and the reasons behind the album’s delay – a wait he addressed by stating, “real life was calling me away.” Check the highlights of his KTT visit from HipHopNMore:
On his favorite verse:
better in tune. is my favourite verse to date. That and the one i spit on Mac Miller’s album. But that one is for selfish reasons.
i loved it, but the media crucified him and slandered him because of the content and his outspokenness on many things. Then the sheeple started saying it was wack like a mantra after a few so-called tastemakers said it. the end.
On working with Kanye:
indeed. we spent about a week together in london before he moved to paris during the WTT days, but id like to get back in w him for a few more go’s. I love Kanye.
If the track list that surfaced 2 years ago was still accurate:
slightly different but only by a few centimetres and a few new records.
On album delay:
its been me. life etc. Jay and the Label never press me about it or hinder me. Full support and love. Ive just been away on my own accord. again, we are in THE TURN.
