Jay Electronica's long delayed debut album 'in the last stages of recording'

Jeymes Samuel, also known by his stage name The Bullitts, has revealed that Jay Electronica's long delayed album "Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn)" is nearing completion.

Samuel is one of the producers on the Jay-Z-signed rapper's debut release. Speaking to NME, the English artist said: "Honestly, it's in the last stages of recording. It's just tinkering. Just putting the final… you know when a builder builds a house? And when he's finished the walls he gives them one little brush over, like a once over? And then the album will be done."

Jay Electronica tweeted, "ok, now it's my turn," hours after Jay Z released his latest album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail'.

So, if you really dig hip-hop, you should be familiar with Jay Electronica (also known as Jay ElecHanukkah, or Jay ElecYarmulke, or Jay ElectRamadaan Muhammad Asalaamica RasoulAllah Subhanahu wa ta'ala — if you're taking stock in his verse from "Exhibit C") — either because he exploded your mind with "Eternal Sunshine," "Exhibit A" and/or "Exhibit C"; because he's got a kid with Erykah Badu; or because his debut album has never hit the streets. Then again, recently breaking up the marriage of British bank heiress and record mogul Kate Rothschild to British bank heir Ben Goldsmith.

Jay Elect signed with Jay Z's Roc Nation imprint in 2010 but has been scarcely heard from, music wise, since then.
