Film Class

Today's artist is Jay Electronica. He's from New Orleans. He's the first artist signed to Erykah Badu's new label. And he's got a really healthy Buzz floating around.

And while I don't know how I feel about starting off a piece of music with celebrity endorsements, (he's got Just Blaze & Erykah on the intro talking him up for like 10 minutes at the beginning), I got to say: When he finally starts rapping - he caught my attention immediately. and the verses keep getting more and more interesting.

It leaves you with a sense that this is a person who could really make something really new and dope.

Peep it for yourself and let me know what ya'll think:

Jay Electronica: Act one: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

it's 15 minutes long. But it's worth it
