Jay Electronica: “I Was Gonna Use ‘Control’ for My Album”


VIBE caught up with Jay Electronica while in Croatia for the Outlook Festival. Electronica, who is featured alongside Kendrick Lamar on Big Sean’s “Control” track, told VIBE that he was going to use “Control” for his long-awaited debut if the track didn’t get cleared for Big Sean’s Hall of Fame. “It was me and Big Sean, and we had verses on there. Then, when he told me it wasn’t on his album, I was gonna use it for my album. Then he told me, the day before it came out, that Kendrick Lamar put a verse on it and that we’re gonna put it out,” says Jay Elect of “Control.” Still no word on when the NOLA rapper’s official studio debut LP will surface, though.
