Music-Notes--Jay-Electronica

Raised in the Magnolia Projects of New Orleans, Jay Electronica left home as a young man to travel from city to city, developing his distinctive voice as a hip hop artist in Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, and Detroit before launching his career through MySpace in 2007. With sophisticated lyrics set against wistful instrumentals, a performance by Jay Electronica is anything but ordinary, so make sure to check out his show at The Blind Pig. If you want to get a sampling of what he’s all about, listen to “Act 1,” where Jay floats lyrics above the score to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
