Twitter – As millions of people across the globe remain paralyzed by COVID-19, Jay Electronica unveiled his debut album, A Written Testimony, on Friday (March 13), giving Hip Hop fans something to smile about.
In addition to Travis Scott and The-Dream, who are the only two guests noted on the tracklist, JAY-Z is all over the 10-track project, leading Twitter to dub the project Watch The Throne 2.
From “Shiny-Suit Theory” to “Universal Theory,” Jay blesses several songs on the album with powerful verses.
As Electronica raps on “Ezekiel’s Wheel” featuring The-Dream, “My debut album featurin’ Hov, man, this is highway robbery/It’s like I hit the lottery, I busted the piñat-y/Now I’m hot like a tamale, it’s just like I caught a body/It will be pandemonium if I show up to the party/May all my haters hit they knees and throw up in the toilet/In the twinklin’ of an eye I went from legend to historic.”
Of course, not everyone agrees and argued Watch The Throne 2 can only be made by Hov and Kanye West. But overall, Twitter is thrilled to have a new Jay Electronica album in 2020 — even if the world is coming to an end.
Check out some of the reactions below.

“I got numbers on my phone
Pictures on my phone
The day my momma died, I scrolled her texts all night long
The physical returns but the connection still stay strong”

Y’all don’t understand how long we’ve been waiting for this man. Jay Z done had 3 kids, dropped 4 albums, bought a streaming service, and became a billionaire in the time it took Jay Electronica to drop ONE album.
