Jay Electronica Signs with Roc Nation

Jay Electronica is the newest member of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation team.

The mysterious New Orleans rapper joined the Brooklyn bred rapper/entrepreneur last night (November 12) as he made the public announcement at New York City night club The Box. Yet according to hip-hop personality Miss Info, the official paperwork was signed last Saturday.

“Jay-Z made me an offer I couldn’t refuse,” Elec said. “And I have the freedom I need too.”

During the celebration the two also previewed their collaborative song, “Shiny Suit Theory” which features The-Dream and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Electronica joins Fayetteville, N.C. rep and 2010 XXL Freshman J. Cole on the Roc Nation roster.

As of press time there is still no word on when Jay Elec’s long delayed Act II mixtape will be coming out. —Elan Mancini
