Jay Electronica Says Album Is Complete

After a lengthy absence from the public eye, Jay Electronica is saying the wait is over.

The super lyrical MC, who announced his signing to Roc Nation back on November 12, 2010, took to his Twitter account on Thursday (March 8) to let his fans know that his album is finally ready.

“Dear Believers and Patient Supporters,” Jay Elec tweeted, addressing his fans. “Thank you for your patience and support. The Album will be turned in Tomorrow evening. The wait ends. Over the next day or so, i will write an open letter via my tumblr ( to those who have waited patiently on me. Love.”

Despite the announcement, a release date has yet to be confirmed. Perhaps the date will be revealed via the open letter Jay promised. Calls to Jay Electronica’s camp weren’t immediately returned.

After tweeting the news of his album, Elec then took the time to shout out a couple of his famous friends—Lil B and Diddy.

“Thank You #BasedGod for the letters of encouragement,” he wrote. “Lets get busy on this EP we spoke of.”

Diddy tweeted, “what’s up brother?,” to which Electronica responded: “@iamdiddy Whats Good Brother!! I Miss you and love you. Its time for the mission. Lets link.”

There was brief tension between Diddy and Jay Electronica—as witnessed on Twitter—shortly after Elec announced signing to Roc Nation. Apparently, Diddy was disheartened that Electronica chose Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and not his own Bad Boy Records as his recording home. The two exchanged words, but Diddy quickly ended it at the time by tweeting, “@JayElectronica I’m proud of you! I’m happy for you. I love you! I congratulate you. I’m not mad at you!” —Mark Lelinwalla
