Jay Electronica’s Debut Album Is (Finally) Coming This Year


It’s been a long time coming, but Jay Electronica has finally announced that his debut studio album, Act II: Patents Of Nobility, will land this year.

In an album discussion thread on the hip-hop forum KanyeToThe, Jay surprised fans and answered some Q’s about the highly anticipated work.

After one fan asked if the album was coming on July 12, after the Roc Nation rapper posted a cryptic tweet that was later deleted and apparently read, “ps, we are going to try and burst the heavens open on July 12th”, he replied, “No sir.. but i promise you its coming this year and I’m about to heat the game up and charge the particles so high..”

Last September, producer Just Blaze promised fans that the album was almost complete and on the way. “The situation is Jay moves at his own pace,” Blaze told VladTV.” He always moved at his own pace… There is an album. It’s actually a damn good album.”

The project would mark the long overdue follow-up to 2007’s MySpace release Act I: The Eternal Sunshine.
