SOUND OFF: Will Jay-Z Signing Jay Electronica Water Down The Game’s Best Kept Secret?
Will Jay Electronica fall victim to Mainstream complacency now that he’s got a major deal?
Over the weekend, in what amounted to the biggest news of the week, Jay-Z officially announced the signing of his newest artist to the Roc Nation imprint, Jay Electronica. He’s been on the underground radar for years and really only first made mainstream headlines as the 19th baby daddy to Erica Badu.
But for the heads that know his music they know the kid’s not only got skills but a lot of passion and fire for his music. But some might argue that his signing to Jay-Z’s label might stifle his career. Jay-Z while an excellent business man and an immortal artist, like Jordan hasn’t been able to do much in the front office seat. So there is a concern among many that Electronic may fall victim to the mainstream politics or cause his music to be watered down due to complacency. SOUND OFF: Do you think the signing will water down the Game’s Best Kept Secret?
