    At first I was real pissed at this. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense that Jay is just fucking with you. The man is a magician. He has avoided all of you while keeping you watching just on the strength of his music. How long has it been? 5 years? No rapper has broke more promises and dodged the mainstream like this guy has. His hype was unreal and any other rapper would of took it and ran. This man is a genius.

    Know-it-alls can't even detect sarcasm... DX knows to post half-ass articles and lets trolling and racism thrive to make money off of the ignorance while every quarter posting a "Is Hip Hop Dead" feature/article/opinion.

      sure you're right white bread, so while you're here, can you explain why y'all kill yourself, family, and co-workers when you lose your job instead of just getting another job and letting everyone live? Thanks in advance.

    JAY ELECTRONICA IS JUST ANOTHER FRAUD IN INDUSTRY, I'M SORRY FOR HIS SORRY ASS VOICE. I DON'T GET IT WHY THE HELL HE PERFORMS AT "MADE IN AMERICA FESTIVAL" BECAUSE HE MADE NOTHING EVEN IN HIS CORNY HOOD, NOT IN AMERICA. HE SUCKS AND PROBABLY HE KNOWS IT, WHY SOME PEOPLE JUST DON'T STOP DOING THEIR SONGS? WE GOT PEOPLE WAY MORE LYRICAL AND TALENTED THAN THIS GUY, 2 CHAINZ, LIL WAYNE, WIZ KHALIFA, NICKI MINAJ, JUSTIN BIEBER, NAS, LUPE FIASCO, LIL ZANE, MC HAMMER JUST TO MENTION.

    JAY ELECTRONICA = FUCKING FRAUD DUMB WHITE PEOPLE THINK HE'S A 'SAVIOR' INSTEAD OF 45-YEAR-OLD LAZY FUCK WITH FOUR SONGS TO HIS NAME AND A MYTHICAL DEBUT LP THAT WILL LIKELY BE AS AWFUL AS SLAUGHTERHOUSE THO', TRUE, THERE'S A LIMIT ONE PERSON CAN SUCK COMPARED TO FOUR + ONE

  • Vincent

    If yall wouldve watched the vid yall wouldve seen the grin on his face when he said chris brown was on the single, he was just kidding

  • Alex

    somone tell this nigga he go a mic he don't need to yell god damn

  • Mike

    I expect the single to be coming out early October and this album to be finished with mix downs in December 2012 hopefully it can come out then. Hey Chris Brown ain't bad let alone him doing a song with Trey songz would have been a different story to his musical content.

  • on the real

    He was jokin about the single withChris Brown. Relax

  • i guess i gotta be the one to say this

    damn u muthafuckas are cold! i know when u hear that chris brown is featured on the first single, you automatically assume its gonna be one of those punk-ass poppy songs like the singles chris did with twista, big sean and bow wow, but it might not be what u guys think it is. keep in mind, this jay electronica's single featurng chris, not the other way around, and ppl who know jay elect knows hes not your average oridinary rapper, infact he is one of the least conventional rappers to ever touch the mic. his approach to music and releasing music is totally different from everyone else. all im saying is lets at least listen to the song before we judge it. it might not be as bad as u guys are imagining it to be. if its anywhere as good as the song nas did with chris brown or even better then it cant be that bad. just my 2 cents that i know im gonna be alone saying

  • Dirtymoney

    YO.YOU ALL....HE WAS LAUGHING WHEN HE SAYED ''CHRIS BROWN IS ON FIRST SINGLE''.Chris Brown Is On the first single.it was a joke cause he laughed after he sayed that. FYI HOW CAN CHRIS BROWN BE ON THE FIRST SINGLE IF THE ALBUM DOESNT HAVE ANY SINGLES

    • Anonymous

      damn, u got a point there. besides, even if its true, it might not be as bad as the skeptics may think. jay wouldnt put out no bullshit "my last" kind of record just cause chris MIGHT be on it.

    kendrick doing songs with lady gaga n homo kid cudi..now Jay Elec's first single features chris fucking brown..got damn man, cant rely on anybody to keep it real these days..everybody ready to sell out at their first opportunity

    • Anonymous

      @at the dude above ummm, lady gaga herself confirmed (twice) the song they did with each will be for his album. dumbass smh as for jay elect, you MIGHT be right about that. i have to actually see it come out n listen to it to see if this is real or not.

    • Anonymous

      umm, theres no 100% confirmation that ldy gaga actually gonna be on kendrick's album. plus, knowing jay, i dont entirely believe him. he could be bullshiting with ppl on this since there is no proof or evidence that he even has a single for his yet-to-be-released album that is taking 5 years to come out

  • Anonymous

    chris brown on a jay electronica record? and they gonna push it as a single? no thanks this cant be good

  • yeah...

    I can't wait for his album but for real? Chris Brown? Wish it was one of the songs that was actually on the tracklist, not some song that they probably just added now.
