The Fight For Timeless Music: and the argument for why I appreciate Jay Electronica taking almost a decade to release his album.

You have to consistently release new music every 1-2 years to be considered great.

I believe this statement is incredibly wrong an is one of the main problems with the industry today. People should be praising the silence from Jay Elect, not hating it. Movie directors and rock bands can go MANY years without releasing new material and that isn’t looked down upon. It’s expected. There’s a reason that most rap albums are hollow and lack any depth to last longer than the few months or weeks of its release. It’s only job is to satisfy the crowd that is looking for the next new album. I much rather someone sit on something for years and perfect it. Treat it like it’s everything, rather than treating the buzz like it’s everything. One day, you’ll understand this concept.
