  • HereWeGoYo

    Beat is a little too repetetive for my liking but it's just the right tempo. JE dancing circles around these other rap cats as usual.

  • YupYup

    Was about to say how much I didn't like it and how JE's verses were some of the weakest I'd heard. Then, it grew on me. I think people lose JE if he don't drop a bunch of supa-tight punchlines, but you gotta understand he BELIEVES the shit he on. So, when he put the Carters and the Rothschilds in the same line, he's literally trying to give Jay and Bey the same status as the Elites -not just in a verse but in real life. He on some other shit, some what-he-says-will-become-real type shit. His mind is the abstract -the above- this live is the physical -the below-. As above so below... Fa'sho

    dope lyrics, horrendous beat. stop with all the excuses...you need professional headphones or sound system...etc. that's bullshit. never heard those lame excuses back in the cassette deck era. as for Prodigy.

    why is the song named Call of Duty: MW3 ?????

    • PrimaDonna_Jam

      The track starts out with an excerpt from former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s Be Ye Men of Valor wartime speech, and continues with Electronica’s sort of grimy sound over the marching beat. Throughout the song his lyrics embody metaphors of war and pays homage to some of Hip Hop’s iconic soldiers who have passed. He also speaks of his rise to the top of the food chain and the change he is bringing to the hip hop battlefield.

    • Scotty Curtis

      Probably so it gets more hits, lol

  • Mu

    I REALLY fuck with Jay Elec as an emcee, he's definitely one of the most talented lyricists out there. The only thing is, since he puts out music so infrequently, he puts more pressure on himself to deliver GREAT music. Same thing with Dr. Dre's "Detox"... the longer he waits to put it out, the more fans will expect CLASSIC shit. You can't have fans waiting, then deliver some bullshit. this song is OK, by the way. 3.5/5

    I have been waiting for a while for him to drop an entire album and just waiting on him gets me anticipating something greater and greater and whether he is being politically antic about this? Keeping people in suspense? Is not working. He'll do his thing though. When the album drops, these dude won't understand what mediocre is. But I agree, relatively speaking? He's put out much hotter tracks with sociological relevance. This? This isn't his best by any means and I hope he knows it. This is bad bad bad bad.

      Really? Jay Electronica is overrated? have you heard "The Pledge"? And furthermore wouldn't you say all the rappers that are in the public's eye on a constant basis are the overrated ones? Lil Wayne, Drake, Wale, Wiz so on and so forth? I feel ya on the Mac Miller thing, who I am not really a fan of at all, but don't jump to saying Jay Electronica is overrated. That's kinda preposterous in my opinion.

    Wow man, you guys don't need to be up on current events to understand what is being said. This very simple. Jay Electronica once said, "if I really get into it? Start camouflaging it and shit? I don't think they'll be able to read it..." And this? This is simple. You all are just so stupid and can't cognitively pick up on the lyricism. Find a pattern of a rhyme structure and go with it. You need simple catch phrases.

  • Hyperbole much?

    I think Jay Electronica is a GOOD emcee, but to say he has the flow/LYRICS game on lock is just flat out wrong. I think he's solid no doubt and has shown he can be dope, but the following to me are doper with the flow and lyrics and ppl I'd rather listen to off the top of my head: Elzhi Kool G Rap Tonedeff Diabolic Crooked I (or rest of SH for that matter) 96-03 Em Big L Big Pun Pharoahe Monch Masta Ace Common Nas Jay-Z @ his best (96-03 especially RD, BP, BA) 94-2000 Andre 3000 Jada @ his best Black Thought Kweli/Mos Def 90s Canibus/Redman Most of the Wu-Tang Members Pac & Big Rakim/Cube/BDK/KRS-One/Chuck D/LL @ their best Louis Logic Juice/Percee-P (Chi-town/NY underground LEGENDS) MF DOOM @ his best Slug (Atmosphere) Brother Ali Apathy Reef the Lost Cause Shad Lowkey Rhyme Asylum OC Chino XL Copywrite Deacon the Villan (CunninLynguists) Phonte Torae Skyzoo Sean Price Sly Boogie Rass Kass Styles P Jedi Mind Tricks @ their best w/ Stoupe & great features Roc Marciano Blu Fashawn EARLIER Luda @ his best (or how he raps when on a primo beat or with Nas/Jada) Big Boi 94-2000 Scarface Bun B @ his best Tech 9 Hopsin earlier Lupe @ his best (although to me, like J.E, ppl way overhype him and J. Cole b-c there is so much wack mainstream ish the last 5-8 years) Lord Finesse Freddie Fox Gangstar (Guru) Jean Grae Invincible Thee Tom Hardy (apart of 9th Wonder's team) Planet Asia RA the Rugged Man (Ucommon Valor verse NASTY) Gift of Gab (Blackalicious) Rass Kass Kurupt/Xzibit @ their best Del/Casual (Heiroglyphics click) Souls of Mischief De La/Tribe in early 90s Twista @ his best Cameron @ his best Prob more...point being is Jay Electronica is a good emcee, but the hypebole ppl use is a joke when you see the list of dope known names and slept on underground cats above who are basically all ILLER w/ more proven material than this dude

    • Hyperbole Much?

      "did you really just put Louis Logic, Hopsin and other pretty wack artist and say they are better then Jay? Your crazy son and wtf you mean at their best? you sound retarded as fuck or a young cat. Sorry just thought I let you know. Also MF DOOM is always at his fucking best." love the "and other pretty wack artist" part bc you know there weren't any WACK artist on there...Young? I'll be 29 in Jan so I would assume I'd be on the older end of most ppl on here (been listening Dope emcees for 15-20 years which I know a majority on here can't say) I do write long ish @ times, but it honestly took me like 5-10 mins to write "And I bet most of the MCs on that list love and or fear him, because of his lyrics and amazing biggie-esque flow. How you gonna name people like Doom, Jean Grae, Hopsin etc. Wikipedia killed Hip Hop." Wikipedia killed Hip Hop? You're right those emcees (+ many more, including Jay Electronica by the way) aren't on my itunes/numerous mixes that I make for me and many other ILL hip hop craving friends... Yea Elzhi, Diabolic, Tonedeff, G Rap, Slaughterhouse, Pharoahe, and a ton of the emcees I listed on there FEAR this 33/34 year old dude who has zero albums. Crooked I doesn't have an album either (tragic), but he's a doper emcee (imo) that Electronica. Again don't start crying youngins who have been used to garbage the last 8 years so now they hear Jay Elec and think he's the messiah. Elzhi, Tonedeff, Diabolic, Louis Logic, One Be Lo, Lowkey, Juice, Percee-P come to mind as dudes MOST on here don't know well that would SLAY Jay Elec (a good emcee, not GREAT emcee)... The point I was making with this list (i'm sure maybe there a few on there even I would pick Jay Elec over, but not many) is that there are a TON of super dope emcees out there that have NUMEROUS examples of how amazing they are yet ppl who know less than half of who I listed (in terms of REALLY KNOWING THEIR material) love to say, "YOU'RE AN IDIOT, YOU'RE A RETARD", Elec is the best! Thanks to the heads that agreed with the list and know that dudes like Elec, Cole, Lupe are overrated by ppl who think they know alot of dope emcees

    how this guy from the south and sound so new york same thing with j cole

    • anon

      j cole is from germany, and was a big canibus fan at one point

    • problems/problema

      So how should he sound?retarded,slow and Illiterate?cause if you want him to sound southern that's exactly how he would sound.See Waka,Gucci,Birdman,OJ Da Juiceman,Lil Wayne,D4L,Shawty Lo,Ace Hood etc..

  • TRUITH

    one more thing...I think he should of put Buster rhymes on the hook...He could have added much needed energy...Jay Elec is layed back..prodigy is layed back...you gotta have some kind of contrast on the track.

  • TRUITH

    Not bad...Not good either...the hook sucks...the beat is boring to me....I don't know...He takes so long to realease music...I expected something much better than this. He is by far the most mystifying rapper out there right now...He can definately capitialize off that fact..but....I don't know..I think he needs a better marketing team. I can tell he is carefully not trying to oversaturate the game..but damn..you gotta come harder than this.

    Then Young Guru got the nerve to tweet something like "Somethings are just worth the wait" NO!

    I'm sorry but Mobb Depp only got a few thousand fans left. Jay came incredibly weak to be hyping himself like he did. I feel like I'm missing some deep coded messege that should make this shit hot. Its fucking mind boggling to think Jay Elect got niggas waiting two years from the time this was supposed to drop for this. Then you know you gotta wait another year at least for Act III. I'm not hype anymore. If he say he dropping a track from now on I'll be like oh ok...

  • Overhyped...ELZHI, TONEDEFF, DIABOLIC slaughter him

    .....

  • man

    i like Jay Electronica a lot but this song is meh, don't really get the name to this either. And it's kind of weird that he did a song with Mobb Deep, he's signed to Roc Nation, then again i don't know if Jay-Z and Mobb Deep squashed the beef, but i don't really care about that beef, so i never kept up with it.

  • Grizzle

    I like Jay E but this shit is wack, and the title doesn't fit the song concept. Also, not every nigga has diamonds to wave so fuck y'all.

  • M.u. Tha Don

    Jay Electronica does rip whatever beat he puts his verse to,at first this song didn't hit me but now that I'm really listening I give this song a 3.5 because of the mix... M.U. "Political" http://youtu.be/HbEhcViOlpw

  • NU UH

    JAY ELECTRONICA needs to stop riding his own dick and buying the hype. dude dropped ONE dope track. ONE. his beats suck. he's a weak producer. it's like pulling teeth getting this guy to release music. he's lazy. then he drops a joint, and it's weak. and every corny hip hop blog plays right into it. they give him the platform and play into his terms. show n prove. you been out for YEARS, and there's no body of work. i don't know ANYONE that can quote a jay electronica joint in real life. he's internet hype at its finest. cats act like exhibit c was "juicy". best part about this track was prodigy. all this hype for one damn track. "it's coming" "i'm gonna make NY come to a standstill", just drop the track and let the music do the talking you clown. this guy couldn't compete in the 90's, all smoke n mirrors.

      @ Javito 1: I actually do like the beat he did for Nas (simple, but dope), but to say he has the flow/LYRICS game on lock is just flat out wrong. I think he's a GOOD emcee no doubt and has shown he can be dope, the following to me are doper with the flow and lyrics and ppl I'd rather listen to off the top of my head Elzhi Kool G Rap Tonedeff Diabolic Crooked I (or rest of SH for that matter) 96-03 Em Big L Big Pun Pharoahe Monch Masta Ace Common Nas Jay-Z @ his best (96-03 especially RD, BP, BA) 94-2000 Andre 3000 Jada @ his best Black Thought Kweli/Mos Def 90s Canibus/Redman Most of the Wu-Tang Members Pac & Big Rakim/Cube/BDK/KRS-One/Chuck D/LL @ their best Louis Logic Juice/Percee-P (Chi-town/NY underground LEGENDS) MF DOOM @ his best Slug (Atmosphere) Brother Ali Apathy Reef the Lost Cause Shad Lowkey Rhyme Asylum OC Chino XL Copywrite Deacon the Villan (CunninLynguists) Phonte Torae Skyzoo Sean Price Sly Boogie Rass Kass Styles P Jedi Mind Tricks @ their best w/ Stoupe & great features Roc Marciano Blu Fashawn EARLIER Luda @ his best (or how he raps when on a primo beat or with Nas/Jada) Big Boi 94-2000 Scarface Bun B @ his best Tech 9 Hopsin earlier Lupe @ his best Lord Finesse Freddie Fox Gangstar (Guru) Jean Grae Invincible Thee Tom Hardy (apart of 9th Wonder's team) Planet Asia RA the Rugged Man (Ucommon Valor verse NASTY) Gift of Gab (Blackalicious) Rass Kass Kurupt/Xzibit @ their best Del/Casual (Heiroglyphics click) Souls of Mischief De La/Tribe in early 90s Twista @ his best Cameron @ his best Prob more...point being is Jay Electronica is a good emcee, but the hypebole ppl use when you see the list of dope known names and slept on underground cats above who are basically all ILLER w/ more proven material than this dude

    • NU UH

      jay electronicas exhibit c is sposed to be some kinda hip hop classic, right? i can't quote one lyric. haven't played it in forever. never heard it in a cipher, never saw anybody ask the DJ to spin it. can you quote anything from that song without looking it up? this dude can rhyme, but he gets too much hype and attention considering how inactive he is. he has more interviews than tracks. he's on twitter all day everyday. he hyped this track for 48 hours. he adds pressure to himself when he's already shown an inability to handle it. i've never seen an emcee duck the light quite like electronica. no doubt he can get it in, but there's emcees that can spit just as nice that work at least twice as hard. blogs need to get off this dude's dick till he's ready to present a full body of work. everytime you gas his singles he goes missing for 12 months.

    • Javito_1

      Strongly disagree. As far as flow and lyrics Jay Electronica has it locked, and I really don't see how anyone could hate on the beat for "queens get the money". I don't hear too many people quoting jay around my way either, nor do I hear them quoting K.R.I.T, DOOM, or plenty other underrated rappers, beacause most of the people I know are quoting mindless wayne lyrics, but if that's what you judge an MC's quality by...

    • jake

      Well said my man, well said...way overhyped...dudes like him, j. cole, and even lupe (Although he's proven he can be dope, but i still feel overrated) are overhyped and their comp in the mainstream is wack for the most part. Dudes who SHOULD be hyped that are super duper dope emcees include ELZHI (ILLEST alive imo), ONE BE LO, DIABOLIC, TONEDEFF, JUICE, PERCEE-P, LOUIS LOGIC, APATHY, SLUG, BROTHER ALI, SLAUGHTERHOUSE, SHAD, JEAN GRAE, MONCH, MASTA ACE, G RAP to name a FEW of many!

    New Jay Electronica joints are always welcome.

  • lol @ this nonsense

    What is jay electronica suppose to be changing? What is he saying that has NOT already been said before? He name drops religions, he talks about the moon and the stars, the motherland...and so what? He makes up words that sound profound to an average educated person and he is what you hip hop purist call a "game changer." Rakim, Wu, KRS 1, Killah Priest, Mobb Deep and countless emcees have all rapped like this 100 times better than this dude is trying to do today. This dude wants to be a NY emcee so bad.

    • jake

      Agree 100% man...he's good, not great imo...it's not hating to say someone isn't GREAT... If anyone on this site thinks Electronic is a doper emcee than Elzhi (a game changer imo as a solo artist...been around since late 90s, but last 5 years focusing on solo career has been REMARKABLY ILL) for example, they need to do research...I like MCs that make me press rewind or say GOD DAMN

    Dear Jay Electronica: Come on man. I know you can make better music than this. Is this what you where hyping us up for over on Twitter? I thought you where the GOD MC? Mobb Deep is TRASH and they sound like ASS on the hook and the verse. I waited a year to hear a song with a good beat and ONLY Jay E rapping on the track. But NOOOO! You had to put lame ass Mobb Deep on the song and cheate me out of hearing a WHOLE song with just you rapping. Cmon black king you can do better than this. I knew the song was gonna be lame when you had Mobb Deep come in at the last damn minute of the damn day. What the fuck where you thinking? I knew the song was sub par because by the end of the night you stopped tweeting about it, Young Guru stopped tweeting, and JustBlaze stopped tweeting about the song. Hell you didnt even release the son, change the artwork on your Tumbler page, or mention it on your twitter when it was finished cuz u was probably so embarrassed about how bad it sounded. Ha Ha To be honest you shold have used the beat that was on the Rough Demo track that you put out a few weeks earlier. Now that would have been tight. But Nooo, you wanted to use some lame ass, corny ass beat. SMH Jay Electronica, dont you eva put no bull shit out like this eva agian. DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR? This song was some strait up nigga shit and sub par at best. I know the black god still dwells deep inside of you, so im asking the god within you to put out some better music than this next time. Please Thank you
