Get your popcorn, fruits & veggies ready… Into The Light is on the way and brought to us by Mass Appeal the  (authoritative voice of the ever-broadening urban experience). This should be dope! The ever intriguing story of
“Jay Electronica is full of mystery, and like a magician, his character lends itself to new ways of seeing things that would seem impossible to many. Several years ago, Jay and I traveled to the other side of the Earth. We left a piece of ourselves there. In exchange, we brought back something entirely new, and the images that follow are a glimpse into that magic for everyone who’s curious.Traveling across strange lands, we were invited to attend sacred ceremonies of sacrifice and parading celebrations of ancient descent. We trekked together towards the horizon and explored crowded monasteries, solitary mountain top temples, slums of filthy laughing children, and rivers running with blood and flower petals. I documented as Jay walked a river of burning human bodies. We crash landed a helicopter in the Himalayas, and he delivered rice and clean water to a school in a refugee tent city. The result was a collage of movements and emotion.

The experience in itself was a perfect circle. A question with no answers. Full of laughter and tears, but no love story or plot twists. We searched for absolute truth in life, and the only undeniable answer we found was death.

Since returning, I have been working on a film based on this journey called Into the Light. It is experimental in form and best described as a meditation in un-learning. A movement in seeing without watching, hearing without listening, and the brave exploration of spirit. I look forward to sharing this film soon.”

My Train is Always on Schedule (Fan Made Documentary on Jay Eelectronica)

jay-electronica-profile

Peep this Fan made perspective on Jay Electronica. A mini documentary showcasing the electric language of the paranormal poet. .,, just a little something for the heads “I overheard niggas saying Jay was on the verge
He could make Rumsfeld resign with rhymes he never heard

Commune with the birds
And can manipulate matter with the usage of words
Throwin’ dice on the curb
I’m the best and the freshest with the written text, fuck what you heard
It’s the, metaphysical, dolby digital

Any Joe’ll tell you, the flow’s so pivotal
Every word’s literal
Each diatribe is sort of like an interview
Come get an inner view
Right past the man and the myth to the mineral

I was born uptown a mile from the river view
Look, I’m a simple man, ya understand?
Masterin’ my temple man, tryin’ to expand
But when they think you simple, man
They’ll try to play you out like you a simpleton
See what I’m sayin’
Niggas want pain not mercy

I’m writin’ in my Moleskine on the train to Canarsie
Stand clear of the closin’ doors

The people are in constant fear of a Trojan War
The vehicle that’s supposed to free us is just an whore
I gotta call ’em like I see ’em
Even if it means they’ll sanction my per diem
The angels will thank me in the streets if I see ’em
Sayin’, there he go but I wouldn’t wanna be him

Holdin’ up a three and reppin’ for New Orleans
Let us begin….-Jay Electronica
