Fans of Jay Electronica have been waiting patiently for what seems like forever for the New Orleans MC’s debut, but now the elusive project is one step closer to becoming a reality with a recently announced tracklist.
Jay revealed the song titles off his Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn) in a tweet over the weekend. The enigmatic wordsmith, who signed to Roc Nation last year, teased that the album would be the second part of a planned trilogy based on the three steps of a magic trick (the pledge, the turn and the prestige). Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge) was released for free on MySpace in 2007.
