If you are like me, then you, too, must be saying a daily prayer that Jay Electronica’s album will drop unexpectedly. So far, the elusive emcee hasn’t said a peep about the album’s release but, thankfully, he drops by every once and a while to remind us why we all need to be excited for the debut. On They Die By Dawn, Jay Elec, with his painfully poetic wordplay and demonstrative flow, destroys a country-infused instrumental from Booth newcomer The Bullitts (Jeymes Samuel). While he might take the spotlight, Jay is not the only big player involved in on the cut. Yasiin Bay (AKA Mos Def) also graces Samuel’s effervescent boardwork with his unmistakable flow. Even actress Lucy Liu gets in on the fun, making a spoken-word contribution to the star-studded cut. This effort comes on the heels of the release of a short film of the same title, which stars Michael K Williams, Erykah Badu, and Rosario Dawson and is directed by Samuel himself.
