The elusive Jay Electronica performed at The Cabooze in Minneapolis last night. This was a scheduled event, but with Jay Elec, you never know. But he showed up, and by the looks of it, he delivered. In the clip above, you can see the enigmatic rapper paying homage to A Tribe Called Quest with a freestyle that involved a little crowd interaction and some help from local Twin Cities rapper Metasota, who killed it.
“That’s word to Jay Electronica,” Metasota rapped to Jay. “You is like a unicorn / I didn’t even know if you’d perform.”
Jay Electronica has become notorious for his evasiveness. His long-awaited album still hasn’t seen the light of day, and he was scheduled to perform at SXSW this year but cancelled at the last minute. At least we know he’s still alive and rapping.
