November 4, 2008: a day that will go down in history. The day Exhibit A (Transformations) was featured at DJBooth.net. Well, OK, the electing-our-first-African-American-president thing may slightly eclipse Jay Electronica‘s first Booth feature, but the track was still pretty damned dope, as was Mickey Factz’ recent freestyled revamp. Jay’s new promo single) Exhibit C, previously leaked as a radio rip but presented here in its finished form, has a considerably more soulful feel than A. That’s thanks in part to Just Blaze‘s densely-layered beat (sampled from Billy Stewart’s ‘67 ballad Cross My Heart), and in part to the headliner’s more personal verses, which find him recounting how he went from sleeping on trains “without a slice of pizza to [his] name” to hob-nobbing with the likes of Nas and Diddy. This nostalgically fresh jam is available now for purchase at iTunes, and fans should keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest from Jay Electronica (a.k.a. Jay ElectHannukah, Electyarmulke, ElectRamadan…).
