Derailed: Jay Electronica – Exhibit C

Every so often I will be posting under the ‘Derailed’ heading. This is for posts that are outside my normal comfort area…indie rock/pop.

Jay Electronica is a rapper and music producer from New Orleans.  He has been around for awhile, producing tracks from various rappers, having a baby with Erykah Badu and making music.  Exhibit C is the first track I have heard from him though and it’s one of the best hardcore rap songs I have heard in quite some time.  It sounds like it came straight off an old Nas album, which makes sense since he is close with Nas and has produced some of his tracks.  Jay has yet to release an album, so this is what we’ve got for now.
