Remember back in May 2012 when Jay Z said that Jay Electronica‘s debut album, Act II, was “really close“? No? How about when a track listing for the record hit the web two months later? Well, fine, because you might as well not even be that familiar with Electronica considering how long he’s dragged his feet with Act II. And that just so happens to be the main topic of this interview with Just Blaze, a close friend and collaborator of the New Orleans rapper.
The super-producer reveals that Jay Elec is very much thinking about Act II even though he’s got other things going on, like his love affair with a bajillionaire. Still, he apparently hits up Just Blaze relatively frequently about the project, which is apparently “pretty much done.” It still needs some “touching up,” he says while adding the following:
“The reality of it is there’s like a couple of songs that maybe he needs to do a verse over on…Maybe a song or two that needs maybe a string arrangement or something. But for the most part the core of the album is there.”
OK LET’S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD THEN.
