Jay Electronica said in a radio interview recently that “rap is one of the highest forms of self-expression” and that listening to Raekwon and Ghostface tear it down on Raekwon 1995 solo debut Only Built for Cuban Linx was “like [reading] Feodor Dostoyevsky.”
Anyone doubting that Mr. Electronica practices what he preaches should inform themselves with this video from Amsterdam, where he jumped into the crowd to spit his ‘Exhibit C‘ verse along with the fans. It makes my hip-hop heart tingle just like in the old days.
