Jay Electronica new album coming this year

If Dr. Dre’s Detox is the most talked about album never to come out, Jay Electronica‘s debut album, Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn), is a close second. But Jay Elec was chatty about the subject, amongst many others on Twitter, YouTube, and KTT yesterday. Here are the highlights:

This, since-deleted tweet, got people thinking it was about the album…

But it was instead the 10th annualBrooklyn Hip-Hop Festival where he will be performing with Raekwon and Pro Era on July 12th.

Jay then responded to that date/tweet on YouTube:

No sir.. but i promise you its coming this year and I’m about to heat the game up and charge the particles so high…

And finally, a snippet of his Q&A on KTT:

Can you clarify on what you mean by the world coming in/goin out? Are you referring to past and future generations?
+ world systems. Take for instance, this entire current world system is collapsing at the very core. the banking systems, governmental systems, ecological systems etc.. This present world system is only a little over 6,000 years old with the last few hundred years being the apex. Now its on its way out.

What is your favorite verse that you ever released

+ 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.

Favorite outkast album?

+ Aquemini

What do you think of Yeezus?

+ 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.

Is the tracklist different to this now?

+ slightly but only by a few centimetres and a few new records.

There ya have it! Will 2014 finally be the year of Act II? To me, Jay Elec is on “believe it til I see it” status, but hopefully.
