Jay Electronica In London Preparing “Act II”

While Kanye has got the Internets going nuts, Jay Electronica has been residing in London for the past few weeks, working relentlessly in the studio, putting the concluding touches to the highly anticipated debut album, ‘Act II’. Jay invited DJ Semtex down to the studio to hear some of the cuts off of the album, and although he couldn’t talk on the specifics, from what he heard, it is everything you expect times ten.

It’s described as a masterpiece of diverse Hip-Hop excellence.  The guest features that he’s pulled out of the bag for the collaborations are pretty much beyond your current comprehension, and the journey making this album is as inspiring as the music itself. He’s done it, followed the code, cracked the safe, got the formula. The wait is almost over. [via]
