Jay Electronica Speaks On Conception, Success Of "Call Of Duty (Modern Warfare 3)"

Jay Elec says that the cut will not appear on his upcoming album "Act II: Patents of Nobility."

Following last night’s release of “Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 3),” Jay Electronica took to his Tumblr page to address the success of the song, which he said will not appear on Act II: Patents of Nobility.

In the post, he chronicles how he wrote and recorded the cut in 24 hours and managed to get Mobb Deep on the track through Twitter. He also noted how major labels are unable to accomplish the same goals in spite of having budgets and teams of workers.

Read the full post below.

i wouldn’t have believed it myself if i hadn’t experienced it.

within just 24 hours, i wrote a record to give away online, summoned the legendary Infamous Mobb Deep via out of the blue tweets and we released a record together. I became a trending topic Worldwide within 3 minutes of its release and actually penetrated radio. Just heard the news that the Great Zane Lowe will premiere the record in the United Kingdom tonight as ‘The Hottest Record In The World”. 

All of the above is attempted daily by major music corporations who have teams of ppl spending excessive amounts of money and still fall short of the goal. My methodology is apparently much better.

i’d like to take this time to quote my mom …”thats pretty damn good son!”

i guess it is.

and this isn’t even a single.

or even a song from my album.

its just a dope ass beat, with some (extra) dope rhymes from me and 2 of My favorite hip hop artists of all time, who woke up yesterday not even knowing they’d be on a record with me a few hours later.

Look at the atmosphere all in a stir. 

if i were too bigheaded, right now is probably where i would say, “dog, look around. I’m The Fucking Man!”
good thing i’m not too bigheaded.

i wouldn’t have believed it myself if i hadn’t experienced it.
