Although Jay Electronica may not be a household name in 2020, hip-hop heads are sure to know exactly how big this news is. Having kept relatively silent over the past few years, releasing his last project way back in 2007, today the legendary rapper has unleashed his debut album A Written Testimony.
Having offered up his lyrical knack to Mac Miller, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper & so many more, Jay Elec really had something to say for himself in this latest offering. Playing as a story of religion, pride, self-reflection and subsequent growth, this LP calls back the tale-weaving sensibilities of original rap while blending them with a crisp, forward-thinking production base.
Weighing in at 10 tracks and packed with features from Travis Scott, The Dream and an overwhelming number of bars from Jay-Z, A Written Testimony could not have been a more triumphant debut album for the infamous Jay Electronica. It’s incredible to find that 25 years into his career, the New Orleans-born artist is still absolutely killing it.
