During an interview with Revolt while at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, Jay Electronica talked about his current sobriety. "I backslid for awhile," he said. "I got into drugging and drinking and smoking. But now I'm back reformed, all praises due to Allah." Elect is currently celebrating Ramadan, which he mentioned during his performance Saturday. And while there will be no more drunk tweets, that doesn't mean he won't stop using Twitter to drop knowledge.
The interview also comes with footage from the festival, including the moment when Jay Z gave Elect his Roc-a-Fella chain, reminding us once again that Saturday's performance was legendary.
