Jay Electronica, the New Orleans bred MC and father of Erykah Badu’s baby, is hearing his name brought up as the next to blow in 2010.
His first co-sign came from Hot 97’s DJ Enuff, who debated whether to play his “Exhibit C” single on the radio.
He muddled over the idea in a blog post before playing the track saying,
“ Why is it not spinning on the radio?….Is it because there’s no dance tied to it? Is it because it’s not yet on BET’s Top Ten Countdown? I could make it the Heavy Hitter Pick of the week with no problem. Then what? I need HELP with this one….”
Next to co-sign the MC was Diddy who posted a series of tweets praising Electronica saying,
“Attention all djs attention all djs. I’m about to post 1 of the hottest most authentic hip hop records of 2010!!! Just for real hip hop djs…..This is a record i will be promotin in 2010. My brother Jay Electronica – Exhibit C It deserves to be play on the radio!
Jay Electronica will be the breakout MC one of 2010!!!! Real hip hop!!! Artistic hip hop that’s saying something!!! SAY SOMETHING!!! “
Listen To “Exhibit C” below and tell us what you think.
I think my co-worker pretty much summed it up when said:
“When he speaks in arabic, i knew it was a winner.”
