Who dat? Jay Elect, Voodoo Man
From the Lost Land of Mu, sans the Zulu scam
Who is this revolutionary emcee? Jay Electronica, the “Voodoo Man”, of course.
Voodoo, a group of misunderstood religious practices originating in Africa, is practiced in Jay Elect’s home of Louisiana. It has not one, not two, but three main varieties! Jay seems to be mean that he looks and/or sounds primitive at first glance but is actually just widely misunderstood by the mainstream.
Mu is a hypothetical lost continent that was said to have disappeared early in human history.
By “sans the Zulu scam,” Jay could mean that the Zulu people claimed to be of Mu origin.
This line is likely a reference to the Zulu’s prophecy of the return Mu-Sho-Sho-No-No, which claims that the apocalypse will take place in 2012. Jay thinks this is poppycock and thus refers to it as a scam.
It is also worth noting that “WHO DAT” is a phrase often used by New Orleans Saints fans — Jay grew up in New Orleans
Note: the word “sans” means without.
