Yesterday (July 12), Jay Electronica appeared in the actual flesh at the 2014 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. The enigmatic rapper brought out special surprise guests that included J. Cole, Mac Miller and Jay Z.
Reports Miss Info:
Mac Miller was first up, joining Electronica for their Watching Movies with the Sound Offcollaboration “Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes.” Forgetting the rest of his verse, Mac broke out an impromptu freestyle. J. Cole and Talib Kweli soon followed, performing with Jay Elec for the first-time as a trio, their Reflection Eternal collab “Just Begun.”
The best was saved for last as Brooklyn’s own Jay Z joined his fellow labelmate for a medley of songs including “Young Gifted & Black,” their “We Made It” freestyle, “Shiny Suit Theory,” and “P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement).”
