Renaissance Man
Jay Electronica Lyrics

Neo (The Matrix) : "I know you're out there, I can feel you now.
I know that you're afraid, you're afraid of us,
you're afraid of change. I don't know the future, I didn't come here to tell
you how this is going to end, I came here, to tell you how it's going to begin.
I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you
don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world...without you, a world without
rules and controls without borders or boundaries. A world...where anything is possible.
Where we go from a choice I leave to you."

*Background = Marvin Gaye "God is Love" sample*

Jay Electronica :
Ladies and gentlemen, you are now tuned into the sounds of Jay Electronica
Please remove all coins chains keys and foreign objects from your pockets
We gonna have a good time tonight we go...

Everybody told me to be patient
But who was sleepin from couch to couch and basement to basement
But Jay man
Satan trying to block my shine like Ray-Bans
Haters never wanna see you bubble
They rather to see you struggle
That's life my nigga
A lot of fakers in the place
Were invited to taste
And told me right to my face "Yeah thats tight my nigga"
"You reppin' that dirty south dog? Alright my nigga"
But they wouldnt lift a finger
To light the incent/incense or let the smoke linger
I ain't a hot boy but the flows jalapeno
I'm never yappin' bout how the calico'll lean ya
Magnolia crack soldier creepin' on the come up
My grandmother won't leave the fuckin' projects I gotta raise the slum up
These nerds at record labels played me dumb and dumber
So I showed the industry my asscrack like a plumber
Now ASCAP bangin' on my door like a drummer
The fall's 'bout to put a period on the summer
But back to the point
They wanna see me fucked up, kicks scuffed up
Laying back with a joint
They said good things come to those who wait
Well I don't know about that
And if you can't feel this rhyme then sorry jack
You don't know about rap
And if you don't know struggle you don't know about black
And I don't give a fuck what Bill Cosby said
'Cause the problem gon' exist when Bill Cosby's dead
And I don't think the revelation from the supreme beings
Residing or hiding out in Bill Cosby's head
This just the thoughts of a soldier
And if you don't like it play dead and roll over the game is so over
The reign is so over

Tone :
So over
And they call him Jay
What you say
I'll monitor
I'm just so high
Off this guy
He's so hot
He's so hot

"My grandmother wont leave the fuckin' projects, I gotta raise the slum up"

My favorite line in the song.💯

Snappy Snoo

The rhyme scheme itself felt like an AZ reference as well which was dope.

Rogelio Anakin

Favorite line


Jay Elect is really on another level of rap. A shame how the real ones don't get the recognition that they deserve

troy ramos

@Vegas Chill Trap music his work ethic to lazy to receive that recognition


@ray allen have you never heard of the old adage. quality over quantity...

2 times U

FraisC this album He just dropped is better without him on it Jayz stole the whole show. Jay Elect was very underwhelming after all of this time.
