Jay Electronica says that he's now "clean, sober."

While at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Saturday (July 12), Jay Electronica says that he’s recovered from substance abuse.

After his performance, Jay Z gave Jay Electronica the chain he was wearing.

Jay Electronica says that he had a primary objective with his appearance Saturday.

"I just wanted to come out today, clean, sober, and with my family, taking control of my life, taking control of the game,” the rapper says.

    I'm sitting here like Jim Carey in the Number23, trying to figure this all out Sugar Daddy Hov treating Jay Elec like one of his mistresses, lavishing him with expensive gifts, putting diamond necklaces around his neck. I guess Jay Elec is Roc Nation's new Amil.. All this while a loyal solider and a innocent brother who goes by the name of Beanie Sigel, rots in the pen like a Guantanamo Bay detainee. Beanie Sigel dropped successful albums, put $$'s in to Jayz pocket, put hands on Jay Z enemies, gave classic features to Jay, protected Jay Z artists, label and brand, gave Rocafella street cred, dissed rappers for Jay... a true solider, who would donate all his organs to Jay, he'd even rape men for Jay on sum booty goon shit. What has Jay Elec done for Jay Z to deserve this much luv and respect, over loyal black brother Beanie Sigel? The answer is quite simple... Soon as a rich white person comes into the vicinity, Jay Z starts giving preferential treatment to all those who are associated to them. In Amil Electronica's case, it's his rich white wife.. Look how he refused to be Kanye's bestman, refused to show up to his wedding, but when Gwyneth Paltrow asked him to be her son's Godparent, he graciously accepted and flew over to England for the Bar Mitzvah. Jay Elec shud be warned though, if his white wife divorces him, Jay Z will also ditch him..."I ain't a bitch but I gotta divorce them".. He better hold on tightly to his ugly white vegan wife, cuz that is the only reason Jay Z is fuckin with him and acknowledging his existence. J cole can't even get a couple of pictures, let alone a diamond necklace and he is Roc Nation's highest selling rapper... go figure Jay aka my presence is charity, is only loyal to rich white folk, this is the same guy who shot his brother's dick off over a comic book, sold crack to his own mother and uses his lil nephew as a bullet proof vest when Pun and the Goons came to put hands on'em

    • foekist

      First of, it isn't Jay Z's chain. He wore and spoke on it on a interview with Power 105. He actually said, it wasn't his. It belongs to a friend. Secondly, I couldn't agree more- Jay Z has been using people his whole career. Especially Beyonce. Beans was a beast both in front of and behind the mic. Perfect to against for The Lox, for Jay. Jay E on the other hand... I don't think HE knows who the fuck he is. Allah this and Allah that. Plus those zoned out Nation of Islam dickie-box wear muthafuckas look like they're all high too. Not high and mighty, mind you. Fucking hypocrites.

    Y'all keep shitting on dude for dating a white woman, saying he's a hypocrite and shit, but you don't have ANYTHING to say against these so-called christian rappers who wear jesus pieces yet still run around committing fornication, adultery, homosexuality and acts of violence??? I mean damn, if you gonna call a "fake" nigga out, make sure you call ALL of them out.

      Point is there aren't supposed to be graven images in the first place.

      It isn't what the cross represents, my friend, it is simply what it's made outta. Most of these rappers would wear Jay Z's shit, if it was gold and diamond encrusted lol The majority of these rappers wear fake diamonds anyway- which to me is little girl make-believe jewelry. All trying so desperately to convince people- that they probably don't even like- that they are rich and successful. SMH

      I didn't necessarily mean "christian rap" I just meant these gangsta niggas that wear crosses and shit but still commit acts of violence

      Christian rap is one of the corniest sub-genres of rap to begin with.

      "but you don't have ANYTHING to say against these so-called christian rappers who wear jesus pieces yet still run around committing fornication, adultery, homosexuality and acts of violence??" thats because christianity and jesus is all a big sham and all these rappers are suckers.

      Again what is 5%? People supposedly know enough to talk about them but cant explain exactly what it means. That right there raises a red flag where I don't believe any of you.

    • Yuti

      5% are an offshoot of the Nation Of Islam(they dont have anything to do with real Islam) N.O.I is like the freemasons, they were the same shit, same uniform, weird doctrine. N.O.I was SUPPOSED to go Sunni Islam but Elijah Died and his son Ward Dean Muhammed continued to preach real Islam. He was known as the American Imam and died a while back, r.i.p
