The ink barely dried on Jay Electronica’s Roc Nation contract before he went Weezy on us, cranking out tunes at an alarming rate. Jay has the web buzzing again with two songs–”The Announcement” and “Shiny Suit Theory”–in just two days.

“The Announcement” dazzles with its triumphant drums and JFK’s historic speech. A cello anchors “Shiny Suit Theory,” as the newly appointed Roc heir teams up with his new kingmaker on one of many collaborations to come. Jay Elect also reveals an intimate conversation he had with former BFF Diddy prior to ripping his heart to shreds.

“Me and Puff, we was chillin’ in Miami. He said ‘F-ck the underground, you need to win a Grammy for your momma and your family.”

“We not Illuminati, but our eyes on the money.” I believe that’s a response to my tweet.

    Real talk, the track with Jay-Z is a lot better than I thought it would be…Jay Elec is one of the few rappers that can rap on a track like that, and Jay-Z is another…Jay Elec, J. Cole, Jay-Z, and/or Wale together on a song? If that’s my future, I may have to make sure I don’t actually die anytime soon, lol
