Jay Electronica has been popping up here and there in the past year, although for the most part, he still remains elusive. He came out of his shell recently for a remix of Common's "Kingdom," as well as for an appearance in Chicago's AHHH!Fest. Before that, we hadn't heard from since April, when he not only dropped a "Minutes Of Moog" remix, but assured fans his highly anticipated album Act II: Patents Of Nobility would arrive in 2014.

While there's no way of knowing for certain if Jay Elect will come through as promised, the rapper is definitely putting in work in the studio. Today he Instagrammed a photo of an apparent studio session with Jay Z and No I.D. Jay Z and No I.D. are seen on their Mac laptops, while Jay Electronica, presumably the one taking the photo, is behind a mic. Only good things can result from this.

Take a look at the black and white photo above, which the rapper captioned, "from Russia w love. #butNotReallyRussiaTho."

Jay also recently Instagrammed a photo-op with him, Ty Dolla $ign and Migos. Now imagine a collaboration with those three rappers.
