What We Learned From Jay Electronica’s Drunk Tweeting


    It may be hard to believe, but rap god Jay Electronica is actually a mere mortal just like me and you. How do I know? This evening, the rapper fell victim to a classic case of drunk tweeting. “these tweets are brought to you by coconut ciroc and the crap tables at mgm. #youaintthejudgeofme!” he exclaimed.

    Fortunately, it wasn’t all tweets about his preferred mobile device and pot shots at certain hip-hop blogs. Jay also took time to answer a few a music-related questions. Among the information divulged:

    — His long-awaited major label debut, Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn), will be released this year.

    — A collaboration with J Cole is forthcoming. He’d also like to work with Ab-Soul and Nas.

    — He’s ready to release a new song as soon as Jay Z gives him permission.

    — His favorite new emcees are Danny Brown, ASAP Rocky, ASAP Ferg, Ab-Soul, and Joey Bada$$. He specifically wishes that ASAP Rocky and Ferg, along with Ab-Soul, would sign to Roc Nation.

    — He yearns for a new Frank Ocean album just like everyone else.

    — He wasn’t impressed with Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “Control”. “He really didn’t say anything,” he added.

    — His favorite Kanye song is “Gorgeous”.

    — His favorite non-hip-hop artist is Billy Joel.

    — A collaboration with Lil B is also forthcoming. “soon. and it will be the rarest thing ever to happen in music”, he explained.
