Are you watching closely? New Orleans native, Jay Electronica is full of possibilities and definitely on the verge. With lyrical stylings compared to the likes of Killah Priest and Nas; the best friend (and lover?) of Erykah Badu is steadily earning a reputation as being a voice of the future worth listening to. Not afraid to push lyrical and creative boundaries, Jay is claiming his destiny on his own terms and encouraging us to take embrace ours in the process. Strange and beautiful are words that come to mind when absorbing Jays most recent mixed tape offering, Act 1: The Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge). But don't my word for it, scratch the surface for yourself and let us know what you come up with.
