Jay Electronica Better Tune In With The Infinite

Jay Electronica Rises, Delivering Epicness With One Verse

A couple of months back, Jay Electronica did two features. One on Big Sean’s infamous “Control” and another for Mac Miller on “Suplexes Inside Of Duplexes.” On the former, no one really spoke of his verse—because, you know, Kendrick—but the verse with Mac was met with prayer emojis and champagne toasts by all. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll have the opportunity to hear a whole album from this dude and lose ourselves in his prolificness. Unfortunately, that wasn’t in Jay’s plan. So we’ve been left waiting, wondering, and watching “Exhibit C” on YouTube ad infinitum.

Today, that hope rears it’s head up as Jay releases “Better in Tune With the Infinite.” Yes, it’s only one verse, but who gives a fuck? It’s a Jay Electronica verse, which is basically the equivalent of 3.5 Young Thug verses at this point. In this verse, he presumably sheds some light on why his musical output has been, well, stagnant.

It’s frustrating when you just can’t express yourself / And it’s hard to trust enough to undress yourself  / Standing exposed and naked / In a world full of hatred / Where the sick thoughts of mankind control all the sacred

Also, Electronica is rapping over Ryuichi Sakamoto’s “Bibo no Aozora,” a song used in the credits to the movie “Babel.” Jay Electronica had the same rapping-over-movie-scores theme with Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), which leads me to believe this new joint isn’t necessarily leading us up to the second project. I pray that I’m wrong, though.
