Published Jul 19, 2013It's been a full year since Jay Electronica shared the supposed tracklisting to his Roc Nation debut Act II: Patent of Nobility, and the album had already been delayed for two years back then. That said, with a huge grain of salt, the album is supposedly nearly on its way.
Speaking with NME, producer Jeymes Samuel (a.k.a. the Bullitts) explained that the album is close to completion.
"Honestly, it's in the last stages of recording," he said. "It's just tinkering. Just putting the final… you know when a builder builds a house? And when he's finished the walls he gives them one little brush over, like a once over? And then the album will be done."
He went on to explain that this album will place Electronica on par with the greats (assuming we ever get to hear it). "His album is amazing, it's remarkable. It is the perfect… It goes hand in hand with Yeezus and Magna Carta…. They go hand in hand... Also, also… It's weird how Jay Z is intricately involved with all of us, but all the albums sound so different."
