Jay Electronica: “Nobody Wants My Album Out More Than Me”

blame it on Meka February 21, 2017

Jay Electronica has been signed to JAY Z’s Roc Nation since 2010. In that time he has released a handful of singles, appeared as a guest on a handful of songs, and hasn’t released a full-length body of work.

It’s gotten to the point that, at a private party during the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, JAY Z implored to him, “Let’s put this album out.”

Complex would actually catch up with the mega-recluse later that weekend and asked him about it. His response? Not exactly assuring…

“As far as an album, I would like to put out an album myself. Nobody in the world wants a Jay Electronica album out more than I do,” he said.

When asked what was stopping him, Jay responded “Nothing’s stopping me. I release music in my own time…” before likening his music to a never-satisfied designer constantly making changes to their garment line.

In other words, “don’t hold your breath.”
