Jay Electronica hints joint project with Jay-Z might be on the way

Fans are still holding out hope for Jay Electronica's long-awaited debut album

Jay Electronica has hinted that a collaboration project with Jay-Z could possibly be on the way.

The news came on Wednesday (March 20) during a fan Q&A on his Instagram story. He also gave an update on his own long awaited debut album.

Asked by one fan about the possibility of doing a joint project with his longtime friend and label boss, Jay-Z, Electronica replied: “Possible. Likely.”

Jay Electronica fielded many other questions, including if fans could expect to hear any new material in 2019, to which he simply replied: “Yes.”

He also answered a question asking whether or not Jay-Z was responsible for the hold up of his debut album. “Not at all,” he replied. “In fact, there is no delay.”

It’s been 12 years since the release of ‘Act I: The Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge)’ on Jay Electronica’s MySpace page. So for fans, a new project has been a long time coming.

Last summer Electronica previewed a snippet of a new track produced by The Alchemist, which has since been deleted from his Instagram.

Last September, Jay Electronica hit out at Eminem, after the rapper appeared to suggest that Diddy was responsible for 2Pac’s death.

On ‘Killshot’, a diss record aimed at Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem rapped: “The day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed.”

Electronica responded to lyrics by tweeting: “How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac while you completely look pass [sic] Jimmy Iovine and those who profited from his death the MOST.”
