Jay Electronica might be a better troll than he is a rapper at this point. He’ll go on epic Twitter rants calling rap a “clown circus” when the Drake/Meek beef popped off, he’ll tease us with epic performances like the one he put on during last summer’s Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, he’ll pull stunts like this one he pulled last Thursday in London, and he’ll do all those things without dropping an album.
While doing a set at XOYO, the New Orleans rapper took a moment to remind fans who the true and living legend is, telling the hyped crowd, “Jay Electronica is the God of Hip-Hop. You might be the 6 God, but I am the God.” He then cut Skepta’s “Shutdown” short to send a message to Cole and your favorite rapper saying, “I’m sorry but J. Cole ain’t got bars like this. I’m sorry, whoever your favorite rapper is, they all know that I’m the God.”
The album has to be coming right? Jigga did give him the green light, after all, according to Elect’s people anyway. We’ll never figure this guy out.
