Jay Electronica Declares Himself “The God Of Hip-Hop”


Jay Electronica is an MC who’s equal parts enigmatic and boastful, and since he’s been peeking out of his turtle shell with shows in Europe and the United States, the Roc Nation signee’s been feeling extra boastful.

Brooklyn Bodega reports that at a show in London last week (August 13), Jay took to the stage to bang out reliable hits like “Exhibit C” and “We Made It,” and at some point in the middle, he shouted that “Jay Electronica is the God of hip-hop.” In reference to Drake, he continued with “You may be the Six God, but I am *the* God.” Then the calling out started: “I’m sorry, but J. Cole don’t got bars like this…whoever your favorite rapper is, they all know I’m the Goooooood.”

Jay’s been dropping knowledge through singles and guest features across the spectrum for years, but these claims are rendered moot until he give us an album to chew on, as far as I’m concerned.
