Jay Electronica- "Dear Molskine"

New Musicadmin1 Comment

Produced by Just Blaze, Jay Electronica drops a new track titled "Dear Molskine." Whether or not it's a taste of a full-length album to come, I'm not sure.

Though I'm sort of confused why the beat fades out suddenly, starts, and then repeats itself over again, I am pretty happy with Jay's lyrics. His strong, husky voice holds my attention, but the personal struggle painted in his lyrics reveals him as a bit of a gentle giant.

The tender guitar and horns looped in the beat match the emotions of the track perfectly, and the flow Jay is working with reminds me a bit of my favorite metal-faced MC, DOOM.

A nice taste, but I'm still left wondering what's on the horizon.
