Jay Electronica Signs to Roc Nation

Wow. Did anyone see this coming? Jay-Z has signed Jay Electronica to his record label, Roc Nation. This could be the turning point for Jay Electronica.

Jay-Z. J.Cole. Jay Electronica. Roc Nation.

The J’s are taking over.

Here’s “Exhibit C”, Jay Elec’s best known track. Something very special happened when this came out late last year. Sites that post whole albums without a second thought refused to put up a download link and told readers to go buy it. An independent song released with no record label reached the top ten on iTunes hip hop chart. It instantly became my favourite song of 2009 and reminded me why I love hip hop.

Act II?
