Shouts to DJ SEMTEX (http://www.djsemtex.com/blog/) for using my Jay Elec pics over on his blog. If you have ever been in attendance at a Jay Electronica show you will already know how unforgettable they are.

At the Jazz Cafe he gave away his chain, swapped clothes with someone in the audience and gave one of the best live performances you’re likely to see.

That being said, you don’t want to miss this show at Cargo, details on the venue can be found here and you can book your tickets here and to those of you that do get tickets, I’ll see you there!

Get a sun tan b*tch……
