Since 2007, Jay Electronica has become notorious for his sparse but uniformly intriguing output. He has yet to release an album, and his singles are often released through MySpace pages that disappear as quickly and quietly as they appeared. His reputation has grown to the point that URB somewhat hyperbolically called him "some sort of hip-hop Jack Kerouac." Act II: Patents of Nobility serves to further his mystique. Since its announcement, no firm details about its release have surfaced. What we do know is that it is the follow-up to his first MySpace "release" Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge) and that, judging from singles "Exhibit A" and "Exhibit C" it will consist of a lot of samples and Jay's inimitable flow.
