I’ve been following the slow progress of upcoming rapper Jay Electronica for some time, who hasn’t. With his refreshing style, brilliant lyrics and old school beats, he seems to be a true great waiting in the wings. For a while it’s been known that P Diddy has been trying to sign him to Bad Boy Records, but this week it has been announced that the mighty Hov has piped him to it, with Electronica signing to Roc Nation. This can only mean good things for Jay Electronica, who has released two new tracks to celebrate the signing, one even featuring new manager Jay-Z, whilst ‘The Announcement’ features J F Kennedy, odd. Both showcase his distinctive style, lets hope work swiftly begins on the release of his debut album, Act II: Patents of Nobility (The Turn).
