Jay Electronica's A Written Testimony

Jay Electronica's A Written Testimony

After years of waiting, almost insurmountable levels of hype and lore, Jay Electronica's debut record arrived after a recording period of 40 days and 40 nights. Fittingly, A Written Testimony is a mystical, distinctive album full of Jay's spiritual musings on Islam, black power, self-improvement, meditations on the expectations of an insatiable public and his high-art lyricism. TRACKS PLAYED: Jay Electronica - 'The Overwhelming Event' Jay Electronica - 'Exhibit C' Jay Electronica - 'The Ghost of Soulja Slim' Jay Electronica - 'The Blinding (feat. Travis Scott)' Jay Electronica - 'Shiny Suit Theory (feat.

Like a book club for music nerds, For The Record takes a deep dive into a different album each week that we think is worthy of your love and attention. Hosted by Dan Gordon & Maia Bilyk. Produced by Kyle Fensom. Email: fortherecord@fbiradio.com Instagram: @fortherecordfm This show was produced, recorded and broadcasted on the stolen land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge their ongoing struggle. Sovereignty was never ceded.
