Jay Electronica (Je’Ri Allah) is a rapper and producer known for his use of percussionless film soundtracks as a background for his abstract lyrical style, and his associations with Erykah Badu. He is actually her baby daddy! Now he’s on his way to being “the next BEST thing”
Originally from the Magnolia Projects in New Orleans, Louisiana, he has lived in Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Denver, and Detroit, where he recorded his Style Wars-era music with several J Dilla beats, meeting the producer subsequently to ask for permission to use the recordings as a demo. Detroit is where Electronica met producer/engineer Mike “Chav” Chavarria, who introduced him to both J Dilla and Mr. Porter, and who is now a regular collaborator.
