Jay Electronica - Eternal Sunshine

This isn't hip hop. It's a memoir.  It's a mesmerizing photo. A timeless canvas. A Greek mythological sculpture that was never found.It's music in its purest form. It's classic. It's heart felt.

What makes this song unique is the song is dissected into IV Acts; Act I - The Pledge, Act II - Paper Thin, Act III - Voodoo Man, Act IV - FYI. The song is 9 minutes and 6 seconds long and it is ongoing music, without drums, which is constructed from Jon Brion's soundtrack to the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. There are also sampled dialogues from Gene Wilder playing Willy Wonka and children arguing in a foreign language. Here's a link to the lyrics.
