Until then, you can go back and re-visit some of Jay’s recent snippets.
About a month ago, the New Orleans rapper hopped on Twitter and advised everybody to get TIDAL.
“To all those who have been patient with me and supported me over the years, thank you,” he wrote before deleting the tweet. ” It seemed like a tease of what was to come, but them again, Jay’s been teasing us for years now.
Only time will tell what January 7, 2017 holds for Jay Elect fans.
On the heels of the whole Frank Ocean and Kanye West + Drake debacles, it now seems like Jay Electronica has something for the table.
Jason Goldwatch, a director and close associate of Jay, posted a photo via Instagram on Monday of the artist with the caption, "1.7.17." This could mean that his album is coming out in five months.
However, before you get your hopes up, it's wise to remember that Jay has previously delayed many times and even scrapped this album previously.But, it's 2016 so anything can happen -- stay tuned for more on this.The pic shows the New Orleans rapper releasing a large bird from his arm while standing in the desert, and the caption says 1.7.17, which could mean the project will be unearthed in the first week of next year.But the question remains: Should we even take this date seriously, because there are a couple of reasons that we really shouldn't?For one, many of us have gotten our hopes up in the past regarding this album and ended up regretting it and two, there's no actual confirmation that the date written is the day of release.Director/photographer/mystic tale spinner Jason Goldwatch and Jay Electronica have worked closely with each other throughout the years.
