Jay Electronica: Transformations
I spit that wonderama shit
me and my conglomerates
shall remain anonymous
caught up in the finest shit
get that type of media coverage obama get
spit that kurt vonnegut
that blow your brain
kurt cobain
that nirvana shit
who gon’ bring the game bak
who gon spit that remo on the train tracks
that gold rope
that 5 finger ring rap
running with my same pack
you could find the christ where the lepers and the lames at
life is like a dice game
one roll could land you in jail
or cuttin’ cake, blowin’ kisses in a rice rain
nice whip
nice chain
a closet of skulls
the stench is like slave blood in providence hall
yeah
they built my city on top of a grave…
nigga die
nigga get high
and watch the parade
back in the early 90’s
“where dey at? where dey at?
get the gat, get the gat” was a popular phrase
bally animals & rugbys was a popular craze
this the vivid memoirs of an obnoxious slave
I paved ways like nat and harriet
i’ll blast on judas iscariot and peel off in the chariot
i’m sittin’ pretty
spittin’ flames
grippin’ grain…
ain’t a damn thang changed

they say candyman candyman
spit me a dream
blow a chunk of the levee out and spit me a stream
knock a man house down and build a casin(o)
a 2 thousand dollar government check from fem(a)
I swam down shit’s creek and came up clean
with a new lease on life like andy dufresne
it’s the most poetical
nat king unforgettable
clarence 13x allah’s rhapsody from bellevue
im splittin’ atoms
spittin’ flames
bringin’ change
things’ll never be the same
I got the rap game singin’ “at last” like etta james
lames get they planes shot down like john mccain
its a dream its a dream
the flow is elegant like miss coretta scott king
alotta kings seen death and turned queen
cracked they 24 inch rims in the ravine
respect the architect
never test the elohims
goodnight
this is jay elect live from new orleans
