In recent years the mysterious musical figure we call Jay Electronica has been missing on the music scene, which definitely isn’t something new for a nomad like him. A few months ago he popped up on the forefront at Jay-Z’s Made In America festival and did a very short set promising the album and the first single was coming featuring Chris Brown was on its way. Since then we have not heard from him via Twitter and Instagram, but he randomly pops up on the scene here and there. most recently, Just Blaze tweeted this picture of him and Jay Elect in the studio earlier today. He also tweeted a video that implied that there was music being made today as well.
Welp. Its happening. Ustream anyone? twitter.com/JustBlaze/stat…
