As much as I love Wu-Tang Clan, I was never a huge fan of their live shows. Too many cooks--err, random blockhuggers--can spoil the soup. That being said, my love for Jay Electronica remains untested as I watch this clip of him, Diddy, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and 12 of their closest friends who don't need to be onstage present for a recent performance of his "Exhibit C" in New York City. Yes, the song is still amazing and Diddy's ad libs are so priceless that I swore I almost thought Biggie was going to enter stage left, mic held dangerously close to his face. This clip is certainly better than Idris Elba's version of this track that I am opting to forever banish from my memory. Waiting on Jay Electronica is like "waiting on babies" to quote Ghostface Killah, but I'll wait so long as I get to enjoy gems such as this.
