No disrespect to the fathers of hip-hop, but Jay Electronica is the nicest out right now, PERIOD!  The only people that come close right now is Andre 3000, Saigon and LA tha Darkman.  The listed people's flow are so natural, it just feels right.  If Just Blaze could bring Jay E. and Saigon together for an album, one word LENGENDAY!  That should be the title.  It would be like a Nas/AZ, Pac/Scarface, BIG/Jay-Z album, we never got.  What do you think?  Please don't mention bammas like Lil Wayne!

Of course you don't because he's not from the FIVE BURROUGHS.

And how the OP gonna put Jay Electronica in the same category as La the Darkman and Saigon? Say that they're "close" to him and then put them alongside Dre 3000.

There's a grip of rappers better than Jay Elec

@ salty posters looking for an east coast bias.

Most ppl don't even know where dude is from since he's still pretty unknown.

He has lived all over, I mean he worked with a lot of Detroit cats I know, but he claims New Orleans right?

He is from the N.O. or at least that's what he claims in his rhymes and tends to talk about in a few interviews.

I should've said looking  for a Southern bias.

To seriously answer the question though, I think Lupe, Nas, Black Thought, and maybe Mos + the Thornton Brothers, are all nicer than Jay Elec right now.
