Jay Electronica...Best Rapper Alive?

Jay Electronica, born Timothy Elpadaro Thedfor, is a highly talented hip hop emcee from New Orleans. He was born on September 19, 1976.  "Perhaps one of the most highly acclaimed rappers of the 2000s, Jay Electronica first gained significant attention after the release of the musical composition Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), made available on a MySpace page in 2007. It is nine continuous minutes of music, without drums, built from Jon Brion's soundtrack to the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In late 2009 he released two songs, both produced by Just Blaze, "Exhibit A (Transformations)" and "Exhibit C" the latter of which won won a Sucker Free Summit Award for Instant Classic. On November 12, 2010, it was announced Jay Electronica had become an official member of Jay-Z's Roc Nation record
  A lot of his fans (me included) have been wondering when Jay will be dropping an entire album considering the fact that he has
such a strong internet presence. I haven't heard any recent new about an album release date, although in his highly acclaimed Just Blaze produced single, he mentioned that a number of high profile rappers and producers were waiting for him to drop his verses for the anticipated album. I am almost literally chomping at the bit waiting for this sure to be masterpiece and I will keep you posted on any upcoming news.
