ニューオリンズ出身のヒップホッププロデューサー Jay Electronica 彼は’００年頃から JAY-Z 率いる Roc Nation Records とプロデューサー契約として活躍してきたが、未だにアルバムのリリースが無かった。’１０年にソロアルバムのウワサが流れたが、そのままで終わっていた。進展があったのは 昨晩の NBA All-Star Weekend 中のコンサート。ライブ中に JAY-Z が “let’s put this album out” 彼のアルバムをリリースするぜ！という発表があった。今後が楽しみですね。
Jay Electronica and his elusive debut album have been the talk of Hip Hop ever since his signing with the Roc Nation imprint in 2010. During an NBA All-Star Weekend concert, Jay Z urged his signee to drop his long-awaited project for the masses.
Both Electronica and Jay Z were all smiles when the New Orleans native called the Brooklyn mogul to the stage. “Ima fuck you up when we get outside,” said a laughing Hov. He addressed the crowd, prompting Electronica to tell the crowd that the Carters are “home team” after the purchase of a local church.
The crowd responded favorably to the appearance of Jay and a touching moment between the two occurred when Electronica stated that he loved his label boss, with Jay’s arm remaining around the rapper’s shoulders. Just as he was walking away, Jigga could be heard saying to Electronica, “let’s put this album out,” which drew loud applause.
