Could this be the year Jay Electronica finally releases his full-length debut? For the second time in less than a week, the elusive emcee has shared new music. Earlier, he jumped on a new remix of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Niggas Bleed”; now, he’s shared a brand new track called “Better In Tune With The Infinite”. And by the looks of the song’s tagging, it seems like this track will appear on Electronica’s long-delayed Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn).
If so, it’s impressive first offering, an elegant orchestral composition driven by piano and strings. The track begins by sampling the Professor’s speech from Wizard of Oz before Electronica takes over with a cool-as-hell rap fleshed out by vocals from singer LaTonya Givens. If the rest of Electronica’s album is this good, and he actually manages to release it, we may have a new contender for Album of the Year.
