Video: Jay-Z Speaks On New Jay Electronica LP

After putting his stamp on same-sex marriage and the 1%, Jay-Z went ahead and waded into the other great intractable controversy of the last few years--the status of the semi-mythical Jay Electronica album tentatively titled Act II: Patents of Nobility. Confirming what ?uesto, Young Guruand others have hinted, Jay states that he does indeed have the finished record in his hot little hands--and he saw that it was good. In fact:

"It's exactly what it should be — it's amazing. Him as a lyricist is almost scary. He's scary good."

Just to keep by-now jaded Jay Elec fanatics from getting too happy, though, Hov threw a note of suspense (like this sh*t needs suspense?? at this point) into his assessment: "I'm doing something to it that's really untraditional. So we'll see how it works."
