Jay Electronica f/ LaTonya Givens - "better in tune w the infinite" | New Music

"I pause take a step back, record all the setbacks and fast forward towards the stars on a jetpack"

It's been almost seven months since we were blessed with new rhymes by Jay Electronica. Following his criminally slept on verse on Big Sean's "Control (HOF)" and an appearance alongside Phonte on Rapsody's "Jedi Code", the enigmatic 37 year old rapper and musician went silent, until this weekend went out of nowhere he released something new in the form of "better in tune w the infinite".

Over the simple yet rousing piano led instrumental of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s "Bibo no Aozora", following an intro containing samples from a speech by Nation of Islam figurehead Elijah Muhammad and The Wizard of Oz, Mr Electronica delivers a poetic, intelligent and thoroughly engaging flow of conciousness before LaTonya Givens blesses the track with a stunning outro.
