Interview Magazine (the same mag that had that awesomely awkward interview between Kanye and Rihanna) caught up with Jay Electronica and he spoke on his upcoming Roc Nation debut Act II: Patients Of Nobility.

  • Act II: Patients Of Nobility (the turn), which is due in stores before the end of the year. The record was crafted during a globetrotting odyssey that saw him venture all over Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. “People are afraid to go into an environment they are completely unfamiliar with,” he explains. “For me, my life is a journey. Nothing against Drake, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Kanye West, but they’re in a certain kind of machine that doesn’t afford them the freedom to do that.” He adds: “The greats have always been the people who gave you of themselves, as opposed to just giving you a product.

This guy isn’t scared to speak his mind and I respect that.  I also think it’s cool that we have a rapper that is so interested in exploring other cultures as opposed to just pouring champagne on strippers (although that’s sweet too).
