New Music: “We Made It” Jay-Z & Jay Electronica- From Slaves on the Slave Ship

The Life As Shay Report:

New Music People. Check out Jay-Z and Jay Electronica‘s remix of Soulja Boy’s “We Made It.” Drake was the last person to hop on the track and Jay-Z did not hesitate to chin-check “Mr. Drizzy”. Roc Nation signee, Jay Electronica, was also featured on Big Sean’s “Control”…I had to throw that in there ’cause I feel like he was greatly overshadowed by the work Kendrick Lamar put on that track. Anywho…Jay-Z and Jay Electronica provide a witty and “word-slick” version of the otherwise simple song. They reference slavery and the ancestry of African Americans several times and the track is laced with search-worthy terms and concepts. Jay-Z took the cake when he referenced Lupita Nyong’o and her Oscar win for 12 Years A Slave. They mention “Sambo”, “Django” and some more…This remix deserved to be a full song! Tell me what you think?
