Jay Electronica Speaks On Conception, Success Of "Call Of Duty (Modern Warfare 3)"

Jay Elec says that the cut will not appear on his upcoming album "Act II: Patents of Nobility."

Following last night’s release of “Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 3),” Jay Electronica took to his Tumblr page to address the success of the song, which he said will not appear on Act II: Patents of Nobility.

In the post, he chronicles how he wrote and recorded the cut in 24 hours and managed to get Mobb Deep on the track through Twitter. He also noted how major labels are unable to accomplish the same goals in spite of having budgets and teams of workers.

Read the full post below.

i wouldn’t have believed it myself if i hadn’t experienced it.

within just 24 hours, i wrote a record to give away online, summoned the legendary Infamous Mobb Deep via out of the blue tweets and we released a record together. I became a trending topic Worldwide within 3 minutes of its release and actually penetrated radio. Just heard the news that the Great Zane Lowe will premiere the record in the United Kingdom tonight as ‘The Hottest Record In The World”. 

All of the above is attempted daily by major music corporations who have teams of ppl spending excessive amounts of money and still fall short of the goal. My methodology is apparently much better.

i’d like to take this time to quote my mom …”thats pretty damn good son!”

i guess it is.

and this isn’t even a single.

or even a song from my album.

its just a dope ass beat, with some (extra) dope rhymes from me and 2 of My favorite hip hop artists of all time, who woke up yesterday not even knowing they’d be on a record with me a few hours later.

Look at the atmosphere all in a stir. 

if i were too bigheaded, right now is probably where i would say, “dog, look around. I’m The Fucking Man!”
good thing i’m not too bigheaded.

i wouldn’t have believed it myself if i hadn’t experienced it.

    This is dope. Even P came correct and I haven't heard a decent verse from him in years. That beat is serious

      Yet you deny nothing I said. Didn't Wayne have a bunch of old heads on his last album? So wouldn't that mean he asked them instead of the other way around?

    Jay Elec keep doing your thing and laugh at the naysayers..everybody with these weak ass comments act like they can rap or do hip-hop better than you...in the words of EPMD "you're a customer" so stfu and sit down somewhere. Lmao..I love cats like Elec, Nas, J Cole, Immortal Tech, KRS-One, Talib and Yasiin, etc...cats who provoke thought is much needed in hip-hop RIGHT NOW!! Too much dump-hop out at this point!!!...I know there are more artists in this vein but these are ones that come to mind off the rip

    He's not flowing on the beat right... Good lyrics though especially since he barely had any time...

  • WuForever

    Why do lame as dudes always have something to say. If you like it cool and if you don't thats cool to. But you don't have to hate on the dude. On the other hand is better than what these lame kats are coming out with.

  • Versatile Onochie

    dude drops a weak ass joint and every weak ass blogger/website rushes in to interview him. drop a fucking album, get off his dick bloggers. nas wasn't doing twitter countdowns booking interviews after he got on. he dropped dope music. rap game is soft. all talk and no action.

    Jay is about to experience success so the internet backlash is to be expected Songs dope

    "Success" HHDX, the song is rated as a 3 on your site.

      lol exactly. would this song even be getting buzz if it wasn't for the fact he only drops 1 song a year? NO!

  • At first I was like...

    I had thought the actual game had released early or something lol I was about to take my happy ass down to gamestop QUICK FAST.

    song not bad. He had better

  • i like him but...

    this is not a song to brag about; Exhibit C, Victory is in my clutches, Jazzamatazz, and Shiny Suit Theory, all should have had this kind of publicity, they show him off pretty well.

    why is everyone always bitching about music when they don't even make any themselves. If i never played basketball i wouldn't be telling someone in the nba how to do their thing. It's not the best track but it's pretty dope. People all looking for the same thing, some dumbass hook with a catchy beat. Open your ears and peep the message lames.

      i dont know what u guys are reading but people are saying its not that good in comparison to Jay's own music. no one is going to be a commercial radio rap fan,then come in here to listen to Jay E. These are hip hop fans with opinions.

    • Right On

      ditto, this track is a 7 out of 10 in comparison to other jay electronica tracks, but the fact that this song has a clear message makes it even better

  • Right On

    okay youngins, listen to the beat it has 4 overlays of drum samples and the placement of all the audio samples are PERFECT. jay elect's voice has so much power this song is clear with a purpose. mobb deep was asked in extra short notice to rap just to show to the world how respected jay electronica is and how he can send twitter into a frenzy and fuck up the industry. if you cant feel his message then your a casualty of the war jay electronica has a duty to end.

    shut up fuck he did it in a matter of 24 hours thats all you idiots care about is beats

    • Anonymous

      LOL. Saigon and Statik Selektah made a whole EP in one day that SHITS on this. And it has nothing do to with ''all you care about is beats''. In case you haven't noticed, this shit IS MUSIC and not some spoken word shit.

    • @lias

      beats carry songs. jay is cool, but he's not the 2nd coming of anything until he proves himself with consistency over time as a professional. we're all just so fed up with fast food we're letting lean cuts of steak supplement a full course meal. i like what he says, but time will tell.

  • ploootoo

    That record was weeeeeak as shit.... Hahahah Wick Wick Wack.

  • thought dog

    Is he talking about a remix of the song cause the beat on the track he released is dogshit.
