The Roots' ?uestlove Gives An Update On Jay Electronica's Album
Jay-Z says Jay Electronica's album is his "favorite record of 2012," but lacks singles.
During his interview with The Champs, drummer and The Roots’ member ?uestlove gave a brief update on the status of Jay Electronica’s album. According to ?uestlove, Jay-Z referred to Electronica’s album as his “favorite record of 2012” but was concerned with the fact that so far the album has no singles.
“Actually Jay, Sean Carter, has the record,” ?uestlove explained in the interview which was posted on RapRadar.com. “Listens to it constantly. Say it’s his favorite record of 2012. He says it has no singles on it though, but it’s his favorite record…Jay wants a single.”
Despite the update from ?uestlove, Jay Electronica has remained relatively quiet about the status of his album.
Later in the interview ?uestlove spoke with The Champs about taking part in rehearsals with Jay-Z and how the rapper would have to recite his lyrics several times to familiarize himself with them again.
“Oh yea, he needs his lyrics printed out…Well, cause Tariq told me that an emcee can only really truly hold like maybe 30 songs in his head,” said ?uestlove.
