Biographie

Jay Electronica is a rapper and producer known for his use of percussionless film soundtracks as a background for raps, his abstract lyrical style, and his associations with Erykah Badu, Just Blaze and Nas. He produced the first track, « Queens Get the Money », on the 2008 Nas album Untitled. The unconventional nature of much of his music, and the lack of conventional release methods for that music, have since 2007 made him the object of much attention. He is perhaps best known for the piece of music Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge).

Signed to Badu’s Control Freaq Records, Electronica is yet to release an album or single. His music so far has been made available through the internet, either through being leaked to what URB magazine describes as « obscure web forums », or through an appearing and disappearing myspace page (currently two seem to be in existence, at /jayelect and at /jayelectronica). Badu has questioned whether he ever will release, in her words, « actual albums ».

Originally from the Magnolia Projects in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A., he has lived in Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Denver, and Detroit, where he recorded his Style Wars EP with several J Dilla beats, meeting the producer subsequently to ask for permission to use the recordings as a demo. Detroit is also the home of Mr. Porter, who has produced for Electronica, and is where Electronica met engineer Mike « Chav » Chavarria, now a regular collaborator.
