Jay Electronica loves the suspense. The New Orleans, Louisiana MC announced European and Chinese tour dates earlier this week. Without warning, the Roc Nation MC/producer follows with a song that was rumored to be included on Act II: Patents Of Nobility, per 2012 tracklist reports.

Although Jay Z was claimed to be featured, the latest Roc collaboration, “Road To Perdition,” actually includes vocals from 2007’s “Success” look from American Gangster. While that may seem to be a re-purposed element, Jay Elect is all new, and beyond satisfying to the purist fans from the “Exhibit” era. Peep the brilliance: “1,000 visits to these dickheads at these major labels / From Big Daddy Kane to big daddy Cain and Abel / You paid the cost to be a boss, nigga, I paid the wager / Mastered both sides of the force, plus I made my saber.”

A master of homonyms and the subtle lyric adjustments to create potent couplets, is the 38 year-old about to laugh last at the naysayers in a career that defines persistence, patience, and passion for the arts?

Are more Act II moments ahead?
