Jay Electronica - Dimethyltryptamine (Video)

*Viewer discretion advised

Above is one of my favorite songs by Jay. If you don't understand, the song is about a DMT experience, a naturally occurring potent psychedelic drug found in the body that is released when we are born, die, and dream; it's been linked to intensifying the dream experience. Basically what opens the minds third eye. I felt like posting it because for some reason I feel like this may have been how our new mixtape cover came to exist. On a more recent note, congrats to Jay Elect on finally getting signed to RocNation. Now they have the 3 dopest J's in the game haha (Z, Cole, Electronica). I've been saying it since I first heard (and saw him live) Jay Elect is the 2nd coming of hip-hop; all his stuff is heavy shit, so will the people be ready?
Earlier I spoke to Jay E. about the big news, and his plans. He said that the actual contract was signed on Saturday, after a few weeks of intense daily communication and creative courtship. How did it start? With a chance meeting at the Spotted Pig. How did Electronica know Hov was serious? His second replay email came attached with a verse. That ended up becoming the Jay Electronica and Jay-Z collaboration “Shiny Suit Theory” (featuring French chanteuse Charlotte Gainsbourg and The Dream).

There’s irony in the fact Jay-Z appears on a Jay Elec song that’s based on Diddy’s description of Jay Elec. Because Diddy has been mentoring and courting Jay for over a year, in the hopes of signing him as well. Electronica insists he values everything Puff contributed and hopes to have him involved in his career, but said “Jay-Z made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. And I have the freedom I need too.”
The natural of the underground, the anti-establishment, the independent artist is rapidly changing…so I’m anxious to see what happens when Jay the conglomerate and Jay the mystic mix commerce and art.
Shouts to MissInfo on the heads up. Also, below are the lyrics of the song.

"Pigs wit the heads of men spat acid that lasered my third eye closed like lasik, a midget in a casket like a bay in a bonnet wit a bottle and a basset horn playin the theme song from children of the corn, o i must be dreamin, a lay in a night gown puffin kush screamin, signaled me ova, "psssst, u wit the waves i seen u at the catholic church steeple diggin graves, i got ur # sonny, so ain't no use of fightin, yellin or runnin from me" i never ran ma'am, "well then u ain't a clever man sam, listen, the 2 faced king from britain and rome, had a baby in a bush on the grassy nome, where they peel back the orange head peal of a lome, he said hey mc i know u like kilin em, u terrorized the skies for 25 millenniums, now you settin fire to land, u the lion, u the savior the messiah the lamb u need back up, u movin on the youth at dawn, call badhu and get tyrone on the megaphone, tellem i sent u and ya code name is megatron,if trouble comes use ur brain like a telephone, he'll take u to the chocolate city, where 2 face and the prince of darkness had a committee of snakes, drill em, let the skin peel off to reveal him, then spray em wit them rhymes u like spillin, hit em up real real good but don't kill him, we only want to burn him to the point that they willin, to giv the location of the blank face villian, 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 as his brother, the hillsides as his mother, that statute wit the torch and still eyes is his lover she's a harlot, who stood still like time while New York turned scarlet and the Levi monster sucked up New Orleans, while they was playin man vs. man in Afghanistan wit they mind on Iran, Iraq, and Sudan, let him recruit u, he will try to use his powers to seduce you just let him think that the feeling is mutual, cuz if he found out that u already knew that adam had a positive a negative and a neutral, he'll probably salute u, then wait til u turn your back like a coward a shoot u, people this shit is crucial."
