Jay Electronica Says He's Releasing a New Album "in 40 Days"
We can't believe we're writing this either, but Jay Electronica says he has finally completed his long-awaited debut album.

In a series of tweets posted at the stroke of midnight, the elusive rapper announced, "album done," before dropping some other details about the release.

Jay Electronica announced that the album, which appears to be titled A Written Testimony, was "Recorded over 40 days and 40 nights, starting from Dec 26," and that it would be "releasing in 40 days." Jay Electronica also confirmed the involvement of JAY-Z, adding "'...my debut album featuring Hov man this is highway robbery.'"

JAY-Z also used his largely inactive Twitter account to like all of Jay Elec's posts, while collaborators Just Blaze and Young Guru chimed in with some words of their own.

Should Jay Electronica stay true to his word, the album will arrive in mid-March, ahead of him playing shows in Toronto and Montreal. Of course, it isn't the first time the MC has announce the completion of an LP on Twitter.
