Although we apparently won’t be seeing what will come of these collaborations for a while, I think we can find solace in knowing Jay Electronica is in the studio with some of hip-hop’s top-tier producers. Of course, we know he’s working with Just Blaze — he produced the beastly “Exhibit C” — but now it’s been revealed Jay’s being assisted by DJ Premier, DJ Khalil, Swizz Beats, and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. What’s interesting, though, is that some of them won’t be just handing out beats. Instead, some of these producers will be overseeing what is coming together.
“Sometimes, you maybe see a producer that you like his music, and you may not want something from him, but maybe you want him to oversee a certain part of the project,” [Electronica] continued.
Now if we could only get a release date and title for whatever the hell these guys are all collaborating on. Come on, Jay, we need more than just a track here and there, even if they are usually nothing short of great.
