Some would say, Jay Electronica’s album never coming out. And you know what, they’re probably right. But during ?uestlove’s interview on The Champs podcast, he said Jay-Z has Elect’s album and listens to it constantly. Only, well, the biggest problem is, that there isn’t any singles.
He also speaks on Jay-Z's ability/inability to remember lyrics image

I doubt he can craft a single that will do relatively well without it being mad corny

i would consider exhibit C to be a single

it got a decent amount of airplay in the tri state without a label push

Jay-Z needs to fall back on this.

He should just let the homie come with some lyricism and drop some new material for the heads. he's probably not gonna sell more than 100k regardless.

Jay Elec isn't the 'hot single' type of rapper. Exhibit C was a hit.... but realistically if he tries to make a top 40 type of song it's gonna be lame.

On a side note ... I'd like to hear Jay Elec on some Big K.R.I.T production!

I've never understood why Jay would sign him, yeah he was hot at the time but you knew damn well Jay Elect isn't the type of artist that likes to be on the radio. The motherfu*ker is reclusive and will drop 1 song a year, if that wasn't enough evidence that he really doesn't like to be in the spotlight then I don't know what is.

He signed Jay elect for the same reason he signed J. Cole and Wale, He said he wanted to build a label of real Artists

yeah but you could tell the other 2 liked to be in the limelight before he signed them, Jay Elect has never been about standing out.

rocnation only manages wale. they manage more people than they have actual artists under the label

i think what jay meant by not having a single is that he don't have a track that would make the average listener be like "who is this" like exhibit c did for some people. i'm sure he knows that electronica can't make a typical single
