Narlens Stand Up, JayElectronica

Nas hit me up on the phone, said "What you waitin on?"
Tip hit me up with a twitt, said "What you waitin on?"
Diddy send a text every hour on the dot sayin "When you gon drop that verse nigga you taking long"

This sums up the hype surrounding rapper/producer Jay Electronica. With his obscure lyrical style, and his association with Nas, Tip, Diddy, Just Blaze, Mos Def, Talib Kwali and who knows who else, Je'Ri Allah has given the world of underground hip-hop a shake. Everyone from us bloggers to the big names in hip-hop are waiting on him to release his full length debut, but until then he's given us something to hold us off until the main course. With his percussive flow and crazy metaphors, Jay Elect can "make the devil hit his knees and say the Our Father". So, What the F*CK is Jay Electronica? Your about to find out:

First is Exhibit C, where he talks about his days of being homeless and riding the train stoned:

Next is "Suckas", where he uses a J Dilla beat and spits like a young nas, back when nas was hungry:
