After years of waiting, ( 11 to be exact) Jay Electronica has finally dropped his debut album. At the stroke of midnight on March 13, he dropped A Written Testimony — which features contributions from JAY Z (on nearly every track). Then there’s also James Blake, Travis Scott, Khruangbin, and The-Dream.
Within minutes Jay Electronica was trending on Twitter. Mainly because of all the Jay Z tracks leading folks to dub the project Watch The Throne 2. From “Shiny-Suit Theory” to “Universal Theory,” Jay blesses several songs on the album with powerful verses.
Electronica even raps on “Ezekiel’s Wheel” featuring The-Dream that having Jay on the album will be historic.
“My debut album featurin’ Hov, man, this is highway robbery/It’s like I hit the lottery, I busted the piñat-y/Now I’m hot like a tamale, it’s just like I caught a body/It will be pandemonium if I show up to the party.”
Of course, there were some that argued Watch The Throne 2 can ONLY be made by Hov and Kanye West. But overall, Twitter was hype.
