Jay Electronica Joins Jay-Z's Roc Nation

Rapper Jay Electronica is the latest artist to join Jay-Z‘s music label Roc Nation, JustJared.com can confirm.

Jay-Z made the announcement at a secret show held at NYC hotspot The Box on Friday (November 12), which was also attended by his wife Beyonce and R&B artist Omarion.

“He’s an official Roc Nation signee,” Jay-Z yelled as he did his introduction. “Make some noise!!!”

Jay Electronica (real name Timothy Elpadaro Thedford), 34, is best known for his critically-acclaimed track “Exhibit C,” which was released in late 2009.

He also welcomed a daughter early last year with singer Erykah Badu. The two tweeted about the birth in real-time!
