Remember years ago when pictures of Jay Electronica with face paint, roaming around in Nepal, surfaced on the internet? Rumors flew of the Roc Nation rapper taking a spiritual trip and preparing to release Act II (mind you, this was about 2009, so there was still a glimmer of hope). But we never saw much after that. Until now.
Above is the trailer for a film called Into The Light which documents the trip Jay Electronica took with filmmaker and overall cool ass dude Jason Goldwatch. Here’s what Goldwatch, the director, has to say about the film:
“Traveling across strange lands, we were invited to attend sacred ceremonies of sacrifice and parading celebrations of ancient descent. We trekked together towards the horizon and explored crowded monasteries, solitary mountain top temples, slums of filthy laughing children, and rivers running with blood and flower petals. I documented as Jay walked a river of burning human bodies. We crash landed a helicopter in the Himalayas, and he delivered rice and clean water to a school in a refugee tent city. The result was a collage of movements and emotion.
The experience in itself was a perfect circle. A question with no answers. Full of laughter and tears, but no love story or plot twists. We searched for absolute truth in life, and the only undeniable answer we found was death.”
Watch the stunning trailer above, complete with a bone-chilling monologue about Nikola Tesla (who is pictured on the cover of “Exhibit C”). We can’t wait to watch this.
