Of course, a fan asked about the status of his album. And, of course, Jay didn't give a definitive answer. "We're always expecting an album sometime soon," he said. "But anybody that knows Jay Electronica knows that that's the wrong question to be asking."
He also spoke on Kanye West:
"Kanye's a black God, and we love him. Kanye's a beautiful brother. We gotta be careful about anything we here. We all got our faults and character defects. Kanye, as far as I know, is a beautiful human being. Very beautiful brother physically and spiritually."
And the current state of hip-hop:
"Yes, it is dumbed down hip-hop. It's not what I grew up on. But I would be a bold-faced liar if I said I didn't listen to some Fetty Wap and Drake. I know the lyrics to "I'm in love with the CoCo" and all that. Rap is poetry, and we come from the era of Rakim and Nas. That side of me can critique a Young Thug and these new types of people. At the same time, it's young, black people using what they have to come up out of an environment they're in to better their lives and their loved ones."
