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.
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.”
