READ: Jay Electronica and Pete Rosenberg are Sparring Over a Controversial Line From ‘A Written Testimony’
A Written Testimony is already making headlines for better and worse amongst critics. On “Flux Capacitor,” Jay-Z addressed his many critics regarding Roc Nation’s deal with the NFL despite Colin Kaepernick’s grievances. On the other hand, Jay Electronica sparked a debate with Peter Rosenberg after he made a New Testament Bible reference on “Ghost of Soulja Slim.” Electronica alludes to escaping a “synagogue of Satan,” a reference that reads anti-Semitic to many.
The album is expected to debut near the top of Billboard and streaming charts in the United States. After over a decade’s worth of anticipation, Electronica wrote A Written Testimony in “40 days and 40 nights” starting back on December 26, 2019.
A Written Testimony is available on all major streaming platforms.
