LOL @ ppl thinking Jay cares about Hip-Hop, dude is straight business first and always

Jay Elec could be sitting on the second coming of Illmatic and Jay would keep that shyt shelved until he cranks something out that would blow up on radio.

Though this is Jay we're talking about he could easily get a commercial beat made, throw Beyonce or Rhianna on the hook and have Jay Elec write three verses and call it a day, then again this is Jay we're talking about and we know he doesn't like to lift a single finger to a.ssist a artist.

But then U would be sh*tting on Jay Elec cause he dropped some garbage. I don't know Y people think artists gotta be on their schedule. This is art we're talking about. Yet them craft it together as they see fit. And release it when they think it could reach its full potential. We should appreciate our artists more and stop being so demanding like they owe us something.

whatever

I think the fact that hes a multiplatinum artist is whats making him try and put jay elec in a box and have him have a single like j coles workout

When really he needs to be viewing Jay elec as a different kind of artist and go about the single process in a different way

like. . .look at Tyler the Creator and Yonkers. Aint sh*t about that song that screams single. But yet it got him TONS of attention.
you're comparing a 20 year old with a cult following with a 30 something year old that is scarce with dropping music to begin with

Jay Elec should form a group and build a buzz.It worked for Slaughterhouse.None of those dudes have ever had what you call a major hit aside from Budden 10 years ago with "Pump it up". They were just respected lyrically.It would take some pressure of of Jay Elect and he could gain some recognition by continuously dropping material instead of dropping material every solar eclipse like he is now.

what, you dont think jay electronica has a cult following? He's barely ever drops anything but has people salivating over snippets of sh*t

and Yonkers is the CAUSE of the cult following

nobody knew or gave a fu*k about odd future before 1) the jimmy fallon performance and 2) the Yonkers video which was out like right after

so basically, stfu

ok...but look at all the internet "famous" rappers that get massive hype off of one song, ridiculous amount of views....and then the album is a complete flop (lil b, v-nasty, all these other terrible rappers).

jay obviously wants sales, not pointless views. rap is a business.


look at budden, his biggest song ever (and the highest point album/sales/everything) wise is when he was on def jam, look at him now he can't make a hit song to save his life yet his "fans" hype it up and then he goes wood.
the point is that a n*gga like Jay electronica doesnt necessarily need a typical single to get the buzz going and people to buy his sh*t

If this n*gga throws beyonce on a hook or hops on a generic lex luger beat, NOBODY buying that sh*t

hes not that kind of artist. . .and if Jay looking for THAT kind of single then he shouldnt have bothered signing this n*gga from jump.

He can give US a classic all he wants. I'm pretty sure all of us on this board are real hip hop fans. But, the only problem with that is, he needs to reach out to the rest of the world if he wants to make sales, and eventually getting high on the billboard charts. Diddy was telling the truth on Making Da Band 2. He needs a single if he wants to become a major artist, even if it is a 1 hit wonder. If he doesn't, he'll stay on the underground circuit for the rest of his career.

All I'm saying is, Jay Electronica can't release an album while the Celtics are still in the playoffs. I don't know why he goes out there every night with that Mickael Pietrus jersey on....

Call up Cole for a single and release that sh*t
That's actually not a bad idea. Pushing both artist while using a more established one to help the next. Cole going to solidify his spot on his second album. I can see it as his nas IWW as far as more success
