One of the few people in the musicverse who isn’t in Austin this weekend is Jay Electronica, the elusive rap hope who shows up with new music at deeply random times. For whatever reason, he chose this reason to share a new song called “Better In Tune With The Infinite.” It’s a meditation on feeling unable to get your message across, which is pretty funny coming from a guy who people really wish would express himself more often. The track has samples from The Wizard Of Oz and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, as well as a vocal from the R&B singer LaTonya Givens. Listen below.
Could this be a sign that Jay Electronica will finally release an album? Probably not. Almost certainly not. But maybe?
