Video: Jay Electronica “Dimethyltryptamine “

YouTube Preview Image

Jay Electronica who has been a little quiet since signing to Roc Nation finally reemerges with a video for “Dimethyltryptamine”. If you love Biggie and the X-Files than this will one of the best songs you have ever heard in your life. Soooo glad he finally released a video for this. And apparently he shot this video in Napal.

Third World sci-fi with political commentary embedded in the paranoia. Watch the video. Here are some of the lyrics:

“Who split atoms and give mushrooms to civilians
Hiroshima never recovered and all the evidence was smothered
Under a thick cloud of rubble
The pope is his brother
The hillsides is his mother
That statue with the torch and still eyes is his lover
She’s a harlot, who stood still like time while New York turned scarlet
And the levee monster sucked up New Orleans
While they was playin’ man vs. man in Afghanistan
With they mind on Iran, Iraq and Sudan
Let him recruit you, he will try to use his powers to seduce you
Just let him think that the feeling is mutual
Because if he found out that you already knew
The atom had a positive, a negative and a neutral
He’ll probably salute you
Then wait till you turn your back like a coward and shoot you
People this shit is crucial”

MP3:Jay Electronica – The Announcement
Jay Electronica twittered a mp3 link to announce he signed to Jay-z’s Roc Nation Not Quite Millionaires
Song is real weird but aye so is Jay
here are the lyrics just for Jay Elect’s verse not President Kennedy

My view is aerial
Your crew inferior
My crew imperial
Mc Killers
Milk & Serial
Get it?
Forget it.
You’ll still be connecting the dots with smoking holes in your fitted
Those that got it be all at the shows throwing fits
The light from the dynasty sign froze all of the critics and nary a soul got on they frog toes ribbit

Was the night before the coming
Sugar plum candy coated lines for the dummies
Decoded hieroglyphics in the shrines for the mummies
We ain’t illuminati but out eye is on the money

My minds on the scripture
It’s beautiful, i see every line on the picture
So when the leaves Russel and the cock Crowes winter just know that the Black Gods mingled a bit
Then the fingers got pricked
Then the single got picked
Man I’m living out my brain I don’t dream about shit.
If I say dream, I mean Dream, Fresh not Hampton
I got a date with destiny I’m definitely not cancelling

The Stone
The Roc
The Throne
The Elegant Celebration sent tremors through every nation
The Stars aligned like cars at grand central station

Yours Truly,
My duty in obligation: The newly appointed ruler who moved with no observation like W.D.
Say my name on a record, W.W.III
I’ll put you niggas in a box like the WB
Here’s a footnote on the Blueprint
Whoms fucking with We?
Bad grammar
Widescreen panorama
Paranormal activity seen in the camera

So if you want that turmoil
I’ll twitter facebook YouTube worldstar you
Rap radar nah right 2dopeboy you
Your plans is foiled
Your guns is borrowed
We living in tomorrow
A tissue for your sorrows

Video:Freeway and Stalley Rapping Over Takeover in Columbus,Ohio

Can I kick it?

ROC we running this rap shit…now…this is purely speculation but…After Dipset came and dissed Kanye over his own beat last week.
And awhile back Jay-z came out with a Creative Control mixtape which raised eyebrows because thats the name of Dame Dash’s video brand. This came on the heels of Dame Dash boasting he was going to restart Roc-a-Fella records..
Like I said this is speculation but Freeway and Stalley are both down with Dame Dash so perhaps this a foreshadowing of a another Dame vs. Jay campaign?

Both Curren$y’s Pilottalk and Ski Beatz, 24 Hour Karate School(which dropped today minus any Mos Def involvement ) are said to be on Roc-a-Fella but the spine on the CD says DD172. So Dame Dash hasn’t fully jumped in the Roc-a-Fella takeover, yet.
My guess is that they are gonna wait for the new Dipset album to do that.
Is this foreshadowing or just rappers having fun with an instrumental?
In fairness beyond a reasonable doubt it has to be noted that neither rapper dissed Jay.
And i bumped into Free, Stalley and Rashad after the show, and beef with Jay was not the topic of conversation at all.
Stalley’s main concern was that it would be noted that he was freestyling and not kicking a written.
And Rashad and I just talked about him, and Stalley’s upcoming (((ITM))) release.
But Free did have everyone throw the ROC sign up. And it wasn’t for Jay-z’s Roc Nation label.
Whatever the case, here are Stalley and Freeway freestyling over Jay-z’s infamous diss cut “Takeover” here in Columbus,Ohio.

Or maybe none of this means anything, and the true Columbus story is that Freeway is shouting out both ROC and RSE(Rhymesayers Entertainment) home of the Al Shepard.
