For those that follow hip-hop intensely like myself will already know of the pass weekends epic announcement regarding one of the most talked about "underground" (please note the speech marks) mc's in the past 5 years, Jay Electronica.
for those who don't ha ! wake the f*ck up.
Anyway the news was basically Jay e' announcing that he had penned a deal with Jay z's record label Roc Nation.
Now a lot of people have been in two minds about this deal that was drawn up on whether it was a good or bad one for Jay e. Personally I still haven't made my mind up about the situation. Jay z' hasn't had the best time as a label manager in my opinion.
And as much as people like to dog diddy about his management of rappers on Bad Boy.
How many people from Roca fella are still eating healthy bread ? I'll tell you NONE
apart from kanye west, who jay didn't even want to bring through in the first place.
And I also feel past music friendships may have taken a suffer as a result for Jay e' signing with jay z' example Blaze and Damon
Regardless the only thing I'm really happy about is at the fact this officially means a album will come out sooner rather than later from jay e, and he will have enough money behind him to push him into a new realm of listeners and viewers.
I would love to know how much Roc Nation shelled out for him.
On another note no later than a day of the announcement 2 tracks were cleverly leaked to the internet.
One is below with jay' e & z and the dream.
Note to jay' e fuck a mixtape and just get that album you've already finished.
o and Holdtight j cole's career, finished before it even started . . . smh
Loving bntl like a fat kid loves cake.
