Famed hip hop producer Just Blaze recently sat down with VladTv to discuss the highly anticipated Jay Electronica album Act II: Patents Of Nobility.
Blaze told VladTv the album is pretty much complete:
“He did a lot of the beats himself then I came in and produced the songs,” Just Blaze revealed. “Did overdubs, tied songs together, and then added maybe like two or three new songs. Two or three new songs the last time I was out in London. The album’s great and it’s not like he’s not thinking about it. He texted me two days ago like ‘Yo, do you really think I should put out this record as a single?’ He’s still formulating it in his head. He’s just in his own zone and he’s gonna do it when he’s ready…I feel like the album needs a slight bit more touching up. Just in terms of like—not that it needs more songs. The reality of it is there’s like a couple of songs that maybe he needs to do a verse over on…Maybe a song or two that needs maybe a string arrangement or something. But for the most part the core of the album is there. It’s pretty much done.”
Blaze went on to discuss Jay’s “on his own time” approach to the album:
“The situation is Jay moves at his own pace…He always moved at his own pace,” said Just Blaze. “I think the problem is now is that before there wasn’t any anticipation. That anticipation came, but he’s still just kinda like ‘Hey, my train’s on schedule.’ He loves to say that. That’s his saying…He has his own personal reasons for the way he moves. There is an album. It’s actually a damn good album.”
