Jay Electronica, much-buzzed underground New Orleans rapper and father of Erykah Badu’s child, announced today that he signed with NYC rap legend Jay-Z’s imprint Roc-Nation.

With this signing he’s joining the ranks of Jigga man himself, J. Cole, Bridget Kelly, Hugo, and Willow Smith. Jay is best known for his damn good track “Exhibit C,” produced by Just Blaze, which was called an “instant classic” by MTV2 (if that means anything at all). Hopefully this announcement will lead to a bright future for Jay and some great collaborations between Hova and his new labelmate. The potential is definitely there.
