So R.E.D. got the opportunity to chop it up with Just Blaze real quick on working with Jay Electronica. Unfortunately due to background noise it’s kind of tough to hear. Just discusses how it’s difficult to lock Jay down because he’s such a free spirit. I mean Jay Electronica is the only rapper I know of going on spiritual retreats to the Pashputinath Hindu Temple and The Bodinath Buddhist Temple in Kathmandu Nepal.
The good news is that Just informed us “Exhibit A” was made with Jay in just one night, and now that Jay Electronica has a label situation he appears to be much more focused. Just says the next big challenge is getting the album finished.
While details of the deal are still being figure out, I’m going to go ahead and guess that he’s signing with Decon based on the fact Decon is selling “Exhibit A” on itunes, and that Decon‘s Jason Goldwatch filmed Jay‘s little escapade in Nepal. If Just Blaze is producing the whole album, then it will most likely be fire. Gunna toss in this video of Jay in Nepal with a snippet of his “Dear Moleskine” track that Just Blaze produced.
