Jay Electronica Says If Jay Z Pressed Him For An Album It Would Cause Beef

By Daryl Nelson

It's been about seven years since Jay Z singed Jay Electronica to Roc Nation, but the New Orleans rapper doesn't seem anywhere close to dropping his first album. So Hov called him out for it during All-Star Weekend.

"Let's go put the album out," he said.
Days later, Electronica sat down with Billboard and predicted when the album would be out.

"When it's ready," he said. "It don't matter if Donald Trump say 'Put the album out.' Maybe if Minister [Louis] Farrakhan said put the album out then maybe I might go home tonight and throw something together and put it out ... [The album will be out] when it's something that I'm pleased with, because regardless of the six billion people on planet Earth, even if I put something out and the whole six billion say it's beautiful and I don't feel okay with it, I'm the one that carries that."
The 40-year-old also said that Jay Z doesn't press him for the album because if he did, it might cause a big problem between them.

"I'm not a 19-year-old kid that's excited about a record deal," he explained. "Jay knows this ... So the thing that I value the most about our relationship outside of just brotherhood, camaraderie and the love that we share, is he's understood me enough to be like 'I'm not pressing him on nothing like that,' because actually it might cause bad blood."
So Hov expecting Electronica to honor his end of the record deal would cause beef? Seems strange, doesn't it?
