Shiny Suit Theory

Nothing like a good anti-hater anthem every once in a while…

Jay Electronica has been bubbling just beneath the surface for a while now.  No album yet but he’s put out some of the best mixtape work of the era.  On Shiny Suit Theory, we get a meditation on coping with the haters when you’re on the way up and going “mainstream” for the right reasons.

The title is a reference to the outfits that Diddy, Mase and the Lox used to wear in their mid-90’s popstar heyday.

I’m sailing on a cloud, they trailing below
my shrink told me it’s a feeling they’ll never know
I pack up all my sins and I wear ’em to the show
and let ’em go, let ’em go, let ’em go, let ’em go

I’m sailing on a cloud, they trailing below
my shrink told me it’s a feeling they’ll never know
I pack up all my sins and every L that I blow
and let ’em go, let ’em go, let ’em go, let ’em go
