Jay Electronica - FYI Lyrics

[Elijah Muhammad:] Don’t get me wrong now. Don’t make a mistake in thinking that I’m telling you this was the beginning of the man on the Earth. Fifty thousand years ago is like telling you thirty days ago or ten days ago or five days ago, to the age of the universe. We have no exact record of it but it runs way into the trillions

While you was blowin' X amount of dollars on a bracelet
The sovereign nation of France was openin' they files on the UFO phenomenon: i.e. spaceships
It's just the facts, Jack may as well face it
Every rhyme I write the seal get cracked in the chapter of Revelations
A atom get cracked in the blackness of meditation
Mysterious shit
Call me Jay Dogon, I'm on some serious shit
Scholars wonder why don't he bust
Allah blessed me with a Midas-y touch
Everything I lay to hands turn to Ethiopian gold: shiny and buffed
I got a firm understandin' on the minus and plus
So I ain't got time to argue with a rapper 'bout how he ain't got rhymes
That's fuckin' with mine's
I'm trying to kill Lucifer, so if I have to brake
Cause a rapper in my face tellin' me that he the great
You can bet a shiny nickel I'll blast his motherfuckin' ass way past Jupiter
You couldn't be stupider
Fuckin' with the nuclear
Mayan, Aztec lion
Asiatic Blackman from Zion
Quetzalcoatl supreme, lettin' off steam
Dimethyltriptamine make a man dream
But y'all would much rather hear me rappin' 'bout trash
The size of Erykah's ass, blunts and cash
We need savin'
Minds are consumed with swine we need bathin'

[Willy Wonka:] There it goes. Hold on tight. I'm not exactly sure what's going to happen. Faster, faster...if we don't pick up enough speed, we'll never get through
[Charlie:] Get through what?
[Willy Wonka:] Ah-ha!
[Grandpa Joe:] You mean we're going...
[Willy Wonka:] Up and out!
[Grandpa Joe:] But this roof is made of gigahashes. It'll shatter
Into a thousand pieces. We'll be cut to ribbons!
[Wayne:] Probably. Hold on, everybody. Here it comes

  29. Kalemosk

    @Rt11011 its jon brion- row. but you'll have to extend,edit, & loop it yourself. infact, ALL instrumentals on this song are from the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind soundtrack; and to narrow it down, they're the jon brion songs.

    @Nysp0X It's from the "Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind" soundtrack. So are the rest of the samples from The Pledge.

  37. drmyndbender

    @Nysp0X It's from the "Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind" soundtrack. So are the rest of the salpmes from The Pledge.

  38. David

    @1BlaK99 i agree man. euphoric.

  39. David Scott

    @ENYFir3 I think he takes something from all religions. From Judaism to Buddhism. I've heard him mention it all.

  40. wwefroogy

    @SoulfulBrutha5805 Jon Brion - Row

  41. E-Man5805

    I'd love to know where that piano is from. I'm DYING to learn how to play it, but I can't concentrate on it fully cuz Jay's flow over it is just as friggin' awesome.

  42. Andrew LeMond

    So good. Unfortunately a lot of listeners are probably confused thinking he is Muslim. Jay spits the truth.

  43. Alex Maffucci

    @1BlaK99 same here man that's why I cut this part out, figured I would put it up here for other people to enjoy too.

  44. Corbin Warren

    this is beautiful. out of the entire pledge this is my favorite (i find myself fast forwarding the entire song just to hear this). thanks for the upload.
