While he was out in Philly to announce his Made in America music festival, Jay-Z took some time out to discuss Jay Electronica’s debut album, Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn).

Jay-Z speaks on Jay Elect’s energy and creativeness:

“I love that, I want to support that sort of energy. I want people to be creative and not traditional, not just a single [at] this time, this time [and] this time,”

Hov addresses how close the album is too being complete:

“You know, he operates at his own time, but the album is really close.”

The Roc Nation boss touches the quality of the project:

“It’s exactly what it should be — it’s amazing. Him as a lyricist is almost scary. He’s scary good. I’m doing something to it that’s really untraditional, so we’ll see how it works.”
