The Bullitts & Jay Electronica: “Run & Hide” Short Film

Jay Electronica has been world traveling and creating art outside the US, as the music community awaits the release of his debut full length album this fall.  The RocNation signee (yes, Jay-Z‘s label) linked up w/The Bullitts for their French/English short film “Run & Hide”.  Peep this very chic short, and it’s music off their upcoming “The Mos Eisley EP.”

Jay Electronica: Martin Luther King Jr & Guru Tribute

Happy MLK Day!

Here’s a nice Jay Elect tribute to MLK Jr, and Guru (of Gang Starr).  He uses the Dr. King’s Last Speech, over a Gang Starr looped sample, then delivers some insightful rhmyes on it to bring it up to date.  Jay Electronica is one to look out for in 2011.
