    Default Jay-Z Shelving Jay Electronica Album For Lack of Singles

    Last week, Jay Electronica tweeted that his album was completely done and had already been handed in to his label, Roc Nation. Well, according to Questlove of the Roots, Roc Nation boss Jay-Z doesn’t feel the album is complete because it “has no singles on it.”

    “Jay, Shawn Carter, has the record and listens to it constantly and says it’s his favorite record of 2012. It has no singles on it though, but it’s his favorite record,” Quest explains.

    Questlove also revealed that he’s been in rehearsals with Jay-Z and witnessed him having to go over his lyrics over and over again.

    “Oh yeah, he needs his lyrics printed out…Well, cause Tariq told me that an MC can only really truly hold like maybe 30 songs in his head,” said Questlove.

    you can listen to the Questlove interview...

    LOL

    what is questlove jiggamans press secretary!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    i already told yall on this site i think jay-z signed jay electronica just to shelve him...

    throw him some money and freeze him like a TV dinner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    when youre a bum gettting a check from jay-z to do nothing isnt a bad career option...

    youre also seeing why jay-z FAILED as the head of def jam....

    he put EVERY established artist on the back burner and put all resources into his new signings... redman methodman dmx all still had mileage and they got pushed aside for rihanna rick ross and young jeezy...

    when you really look at jay-z youll realize he always advances on the back of someone else...

    ditched jaz... got with dame and biggs... ditched dame and biggs... got the def jam seat... look what happens to the ppl he leaves in the dust... dame is broke and biggs is getting locked... jay-z is sitting with bloomberg...

    the same jay-z that had to push his single IN MY LIFETIME independently after getting turned down by every major in the game AFTER sending champagne/pretty pleases is now telling his artists he cant drop their albums without hit reeeekkkkkkiiiiiiddddddssss....

    SHIT IS NOT A GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOL @ j.cole too... that kid may the be the blandest, most vanilla, major label rapper ever... theres a guy that would have 0 fans wihtout the jay-z cosign... whenever jay-z says its over for that kid, its over... just how jay likes it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the fact that jigga said this shit proves two things to me.

    1. s dot carter has forgotten what its like to be a hip hop artist.

    and 2. the fact the he said this about electronicas album makes me think it may actually be dope. i hope he gets pissed and leaks it for free.



    more truth from brother angry! as well. lol

    NOPE J COLES MIXTAPES>> HIS ALBUM



    P.S. JAY-Z DID THAT FOR REVENGE ON JAY ELECTRONICA AND BENZINO DISSIN HIS ILLUMINATI


    PLUS JAY ELECs FIRST SINGLE AFTER SIGNING WIT JAY WAS TOO DEEP FOR YOU SHEEP AND EVEN DISSED ILLUMINTi


    My view is aerial
    Your crew inferior
    My crew imperial
    Mc Killers
    Milk & Serial
    Get it?
    Forget it.
    You'll still be connecting the dots with smoking holes in your fitted
    Those that got it be all at the shows throwing fits
    The light from the dynasty sign froze all of the critics and nary a soul got on they frog toes ribbit

    Shhh...
    Was the night before the coming
    Sugar plum candy coated lines for the dummies
    Decoded hieroglyphics in the shrines for the mummies
    We ain't illuminati but out eye is on the money

    My minds on the scripture
    It's beautiful, i see every line on the picture
    So when the leaves Russel and the cock Crowes winter just know that the Black Gods mingled a bit
    Then the fingers got pricked
    Then the single got picked
    Man I'm living out my brain I don't dream about shit.
    If I say dream, I mean Dream, Fresh not Hampton
    I got a date with destiny I'm definitely not cancelling

    Romancing
    The Stone
    The Roc
    The Throne
    The Elegant Celebration sent tremors through every nation
    The Stars aligned like cars at grand central station

    Elevation
    Yours Truly,
    My duty in obligation: The newly appointed ruler who moved with no observation like W.D.
    Say my name on a record, W.W.III
    I'll put you niggas in a box like the WB
    Here's a footnote on the Blueprint
    Whoms fucking with We?
    Yeah
    Bad grammar
    Widescreen panorama
    Paranormal activity seen in the camera

    So if you want that turmoil
    I'll twitter facebook YouTube worldstar you
    Rap radar nah right 2dopeboy you
    Your plans is foiled
    Your guns is borrowed
    We living in tomorrow
    A tissue for your sorrows

    ^ TRY TO DECIPHER THESE LYRICS^

    FROM A REAL ARTIST THAT ACTUALLY MEANS SOMETHING INSTEAD OF MAKING UP THE MEANING OF LYRICS FROM BASEHEADS LIKE WARCLOUD THAT DONT MEAN SHiT U DUMB DEAF & BLIND CRACKERs
