Jay Electronica // Renaissance Man
There’s something about his aura that intrigues me. He’s the only artist that has me anticipating an official release. It’s his demeanor and how he cares about his work that really stands out.
An artist that truly cares about his art. His subject matter mixed with his nostalgic word play really puts me in a zone. In a zone that encourages me to write.
Take this song for instance.
They said, “good things come to those who wait…”/Well I don’t know about that, and if you can’t feel this rhyme then sorry, Jack, you don’t know about rap/ And if you don’t know struggle you don’t know about black/ And I don’t give a fuck what Bill Cosby said ’cause the problem gon’ exist when Bill Cosby’s dead/ And I don’t think the revelation from the supreme beings residing or hiding out in Bill Cosby’s head/ This is the thoughts of a soldier, and if you don’t like it play dead and roll over
There’s a part of me that touches with the subject matter and triggers an intelligent thought in my head. It’s not just this song, even the common Hip Hop boast songs trigger a deeper thought because of the thoughts that are put into the actual writing part.
