G-SHOCK SESSIONS PRESENTS: JAY ELECTRONICA
From leaving his home of New Orleans at the age of 19 in pursuit of a career in rap; travelling across America - many times experiencing homelessness; releasing a breakthrough single in 2009 only to disappear for the spotlight for almost a decade; Jay Electronica’s origin story is steeped in a lifetime of trails, tribulations and obstacles, many of which he overcame to become one of the most celebrated rap artists of his time. In a rare discussion, we hear about the journey to the debut Written Testament album; talk about the process of recording a debut album in 40 days and 40 nights; working with Jay-Z and what it was like getting the call from Kanye West to collaborate on “Donda”.
