Jay Electronica has taken a very large step in setting the course for his rap career. He signed with Jay Z and ROC Nation. He is now part of a roster the includes Willow Smith and J. Cole. Does that mean we will have Willow Smith singing hooks for Jay E? I doubt it. I hope thats not in the works. J. Cole is dope. Maybe not everyones type of rapper, but he is dope.
It seemed that Jay E could have signed anywhere he wanted. He was linked to Diddy, linked to Talib Kweli and Blacksmith. Going with Roc Nation is an interesting career move. Will his sound change? I’m sure his wallet will change.
