Hip-Hop Rumors: Jay Electronica's Album Is Coming Soon!

Jay Electronica is finishing up his album! That’s the latest on the streets! WHOOO…wait, wait, wait…do we still care? I do! Producer Jeymes Samuel gave the scoop to NME.com:

“Honestly, it’s in the last stages of recording. It’s just tinkering. Just putting the final… you know when a builder builds a house? And when he’s finished the walls he gives them one little brush over like a on

ce over? And then the album will be done.”

“His album is amazing, it’s remarkable. It is the perfect… It goes hand in hand with ‘Yeezus’ and ‘Magna Carta…’. They go hand in hand… Also, also… It’s weird how Jay Z is intricately involved with all of us, but all the albums sound so different.”

What do you think?

We’ll see.

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry! -illseed.

    That album is long overdue, it better not be on some “Cole World” shit either

    • Matt Swan

      It’s probably named Detox

      • $11625525

        Either that or Botox

  • dehova

    I’m convinced he’s waiting to get a “I’m f***ing Rihanna” headline before he drops (There you go illSeed, that’s your next Rihanna rumour son)

    • he just married the rothchilds chick… but i guess rhianna is still in play… but then again the rothchilds chick could have him vanish from earth and sent to dimension X with krang

  • IToldYoMommaYouAintSh_t

    Where the f*ck is Jay Electronica!!!! Lets go!!! You’re turning into Earl Manigault!

  • Jeff Active Reynolds

    yeah and Detox is bouta comin out too…

    • was listening to chronic 2001 the other day and damn, its still better then every album that has dropped in the last… idk,,, 5 years easy!!!

      • johnblacksad

        First half of Chronic 2001 is fine… second half is meh…

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        stfu u aint know shit bout hip hop

      • soyhiphop

        Is inmadopuroz stalking you too damn smh

      • you crazy. da whole thing

      • Jeff Active Reynolds

        hell yeah man theres really no way Dre could top that record. i think it’s actually smarter that he’s gonna go out with that instead of putting out a half ass record

  • this shit better be a classic…it better be a game changer, it better be a banger, it better make these rappers second guess what they write when they go in

  • YES!!! a jay elec…. oh yeah…. i do not care… tired of all this “i want to be a god” music… its rap for the 1%

  • @Real_SirJamie

    Can’t wait…

  • $11625525

    I met Jay and his chick in London last year, he’s a sound guy. She comes across very humble too, got a Bohemian vibe about her.

    I think him being exposed to her lifestyle will have a heavy influence on the album, no doubt the media will be picking through the content like bones out of a fish, looking for coded messages etc., pertaining to the so called “Illuminati”. I just want to hear a classic album, and I think his lyrical writing style will deliver something that will take a few months to fully digest, which isn’t a bad thing.

    Can barely wait to hear it.

    • Hector G

      was he as humble as he was in a drunken twitter rant going at every artist in the game when in reality he is 40 and has never made anything people even care about or sold a record…lol

      • $11625525

        I don’t really use twitter, so I can only speak on what I know. He was very humble, so much so I asked for a picture and he posed with me, no quibbles, even waited for my friend to get the shot right.

    can’t think of anything I give a $hit less about than this old clowns album…how many years has it been…..oh wait he’s a delicate genius right like kanye…lololol…smh…anyone seriously waiting for this guy’s drink coaster album must be seriously depressed…you are jay electronica !?!?!?! not jay-z….and to think that a bunch of dumb rap conspiracy nuts are gonna comb through and give your album credit because of the last name of who yer dating is sad to me….artists like jay-z are helping hip-hop by innovating new ways to sell records while releasing their work quickly to keep people interested……artists like jay electronica kill hip-hop because they take a decade to release average crap that is actually their lifes work…wow jay electronica, you’re (almost) finished your rap album, you are like 40….someone mssg me when this clown drops his sophomore release…maybe by 2020

    • johnblacksad

      Method Man could have had a whole lot different career hadn’t he waited 4 years for his sophomore release and another 6 years for the third!

      I bleed WU but that was some bullsh!t right there… I remember almost givin up on Meth for that

    • Casor_G

      Truth. I guarantee this album will be weak

  • It’s funny Jay-Z throws together an album in a couple months, but he holds Jay Elec up for a couple years.

    • don king

      jay has always used this tactic. he let his artist work on a project, than checks what he does n records his own song with the style. jay steals lyrics, flows, adlibs, concepts… biggie, pac, big l, nas, camron, juelz, young chris, kanye, the list goes on.

    jay elect don’t even need to make music no more he got that white brizzle’s pockets to dig in! all i know is dude better make damn sure nobody comes along and knock his bitch because what goes around comes around! ask seal clown ass!

  • Abrasive Angel

    How old is this article? The album was completed and turned in back in March but needed singles.

    • DJ7

      Shoulda read your post b4 I dropped mine…oh well…it’s up here 2x

  • soyhiphop

    Craziest sh!t dude from magnolia projects but sounds so east coast..if ya’ll tired of imadopuroz stalking your comments n talking sh!t just ignore him.him and rmfag or remix fag are the same person

      • DJ7

        No doubt…it’s a couple running rampant loose in this piece as we speak…more to follow just watch…when sh*t gets too real on AHH & nigs start getting exposed for the b!tch nig sh*t that come out their trap they try to deflect attention…create multiple accounts…conversating with themselves…disagreeing & or big upping they damn selves..sh*ts entertaining for a hot sec b.u.t. turns wack not soon afterwards….it killed the last crop of brothas kicking it on here and brought forth the new…I guess AHH figures that’s one way to take out the old & usher in the new….with a few exceptions of course…some cats been on here forever b.u.t. they join in on the funk as well…no shots unless it’s henny…wink wink…you know who you are..your secret is safe with the GOD…4 now anyway

  • disqus_wP9qaQP4Hv

    If it’s like MCHG or Yeezus, then it’s trash just saying. If it’s compared to Life is good (Nas) GKMC (kendrick Lammar) The Gifted (Wale) or Born Sinner (J Cole) then its a definite buy and support. Just saying……

    • Joe L. Garcia

      Wale’s joint was trash and j.cole joint was semi-caca. just sayin…

      • brotha_man


      • don king

        lol “j.cole joint was semi-caca.” the album is just boring 2 me. cole needs more topics 2 write about. college, bitches, rap-business n jewles n his emotion toward those things thats the core of his raps now.

      • ImFred ImRico

        This doesn’t surprise me, Wale tries too hard to sound intelligent and J.Cole can rap but he lacks range.

  • Live Well

    If it is even remotely similar to Yeezus, then it will be a weed plate.

  • DollasTX

    straight up like DOMINIQUE’s vertical … beats better ALL be on point

    one thing backpack rappers lack is a good ear for the RIGHT type of beats

    heavy on the just blaze beats, kanye samples, and BIGGER SOUNDING beats period

    or become the next … CAN-I-BUS and i aint wishing that on nobody

    • Casor_G

      You and I both know this album will be trash. When has anybody besides Dre ever waited 5 years to drop an album and have it be worth a damn. Dude didn’t drop nothing because he has nothing….

      • DollasTX

        J.E. can spit – he just cant seem to get out of his own way when it comes to RELEASE DATES, deadlines, and beat selection –

        but yeah you right … it’s not looking good

  • wickedjones

    its about time.

  • Obi Won

    **YAWN** Tell me about someone who actually wants to rap, and wants Hip Hop fans to listen to their music.

      *yawn* stfu….

  • “Just putting the final… you know when a builder builds a house? And when he’s finished the walls he gives them one little brush over like a once over? And then the album will be done.”

    It’s called “Punch Out.”

    What was the delay in the first place?
    Album better not be wack!

    • DJ7

      Actually he turned the album in sometimes last yr b.u.t. Jay said it lacked singles ala J.Cole’s 1st joint…not sure if it got scrapped altogether…I’ve seen trailors of it floating on line with the African sista blowing on the hook…fire…chilling even…that’s what I call the “IT” factor…when your hair sticks up…Young Guru wanted it out back then…With the Trayvon case opening up old wounds of racial disparity globally this is perfect timing to drop his joint. ..alot of heads won’t be ready for it though…expect the agents to go in full effect mode once it leaks tho

      • We’ll see, but that sounds like a weak excuse.

        I think he was chilling with ‘Ole girl.

      • DJ7

        Plausible..if so his original message will be altered….time will tell

      • Paul Dronette

        Yeah. I heard he already recorded an album. So, is this article saying he did ANOTHER album?

  • nookie nook

    This shit will prob be like Detox…will never see the light of day no time soon!

  • Wavpin

    I stopped waiting for this a long time ago …

    • Delonte West

      Good for you…

      • Wavpin


  • WillVetterGoodin

    I dont want to hear another “yeezus” or “mchg” I want to hear something I have never heard before, from and artists who brings his own shit to the table….is that so hard to ask for??? SMH

    • bisolabliss

      I’ve been asking for that for a very long time now. J. Dilla (R.I.P) (Detroit Stand Up!!!) already had that fresh sound in check waiting, all that was need was that emcee with that thing…you know…that flavour that you just can’t describe to a tee but you’d recognize when you hear it…when you feel it…then Dilla died and my hopes came crashing down but I got my eyes and ears on Joey Bada$$, the kid’s got something about him

      And about Jay Elect…he drops when he drops I guess

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      jaye will deliver that …. imo yeezus was so different most didnt like it …. mchg is so different it sounds like nothing out right now but still very hip hop to its essence …. i appreciate the work …. i feel jaye will come right in on that same vein something different different sounds, different content etc.. but unlike kanyes joint hopefully @least the hip hop heads and fans of jaye will like the album …

  • DJ7

    I see cats writing off the album b/c they have no patience…like with anything worthwhile it takes time…hip hop in it’s current state wasn’t ready for a Jay Electronica record on a commercial level yet…that G is bringing the soul back to the game…Ye and Jays joints were just warm ups…trust me…the real is on the way…not just JE…I feel something special on the horizon…DJs need to man up & stop copping out with those tired azz excuses they’ve been using as to why they don’t support SOUL music

  • eric knight

    been waiting on this album for 4 years based on one crazy single. I think it should be dope.

  • MrNoName2K

    With all due respect to JE, this rumor has been going round in circles forever and a damn day now…it just drops when it drops and if not, i aint surprised. Dont hold your breath though

    • Delonte West

      Stop crying dude….

      • MrNoName2K

        lmao.. trust me son…aint that deep g

  • Dead wrong

    1 hit song every 20 year average??! C mon JE, time waits for no man. Stop breaking up illuminati marriages and drop that fire already maaan!

  • $17637591

    Jay E taking years to complete his album cuz he cant live up to the hype his first single created. That being said i dont think his album gon be anything special. What people need to do is start givin JCole his deserves cuz Born Sinner is the hardest album in a few years. “how many records do a Ni99a gotta sell/ just to get the cover of the xxl/ or fader/ fuk ya magazine hater/ ima drop the album same day as Kanye/ just so show these boyz whos the man like Wanya….


    • Truth Powell

      How hard can it be to live up to the hype? Just get in with Just Blaze and spit verbal knowledge over 14 dope beats. It’s not hard if you keep the formula true. When dudes start thinking of making a record for the club, one for the radio, one with R&B singing, etc that’s when they lose out in the end.
      in the old days dudes just made shit that banged and those are the classics people still talk about to this day.

  • let me know when it comes out, all these “its on the way” tweets or BS every other few months or years you can keep… My shtt out right now!!! check for me if you like ALLHIPHOP’S elements! no watered down shtt… IL4M “INTO THE DEEP” Available on Itunes, Amazon etc. – Reverbnation/il4m

    • Delonte West

      You must have sand in your vagina, stop crying bro.

      • I guess you know how that feels . . . you must have a d!ck all in your mouth keep waiting for it and that album to come/cum “bro”… nutface joker!

  • TheGreatGazoo2012
