Jay-Z Says Jay Electronica’s Debut Album is “Really Close” to Being Completed

Fans yearning for Jay Electronica to finally drop his highly-anticipated album should have no fear. That’s because, Jay-Z, Jay Elec’s Roc Nation boss, recently told MTV News that the LP is “really close.”

After announcing Monday (May 14) that he’d be the curator and headliner of the Budweiser Made in America music festival in Philadelphia during Labor Day Weekend, Jigga told MTV News that Elec’s album is getting close to completion and that he respects his fellow MC’s creative process.

“I love that, I want to support that sort of energy. I want people to be creative and not traditional, not just a single [at] this time, this time [and] this time,” Jay-Z told MTV News on Monday. “You know, he operates at his own time, but the album is really close.”

In March, Elec took to his Twitter account to give his faithful fans the message that his official debut album, Act II: Patients of Nobility (The Turn), is finally getting close to being done.

“Dear Believers and Patient Supporters. Thank you for your patience and support. The Album will be turned in Tomorrow evening. The wait ends,” he tweeted.

The following month, he peppered listeners with tracks “Dear Moleskine” and “Call of Duty,” which featured Prodigy, to further whet their appetites.

Hov promises that the album is worth the wait.

“It’s exactly what it should be — it’s amazing. Him as a lyricist is almost scary. He’s scary good,” Jigga boasted of his artist proudly. “I’m doing something to it that’s really untraditional, so we’ll see how it works.”—Jakinder Singh
