Still one of my faves
“They call me Jay Electronica/Fuck that, call me Jay Elec-Hannukah/Jay Elec-Yarmulke/Jay Elect-Ramadaan Muhammad Asalaamica/Rasoul Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala through your monitor.” Try that my friends. When Jay Electronic first delivered those lines, the hip hop world stood still. The rhymes were essential. The sound was vintage. Three years later Ben Goldsmith would divorce his heiress wife Kate Rothschild because of her affair with Electronica. He had climbed the heights.
