Timothy Elpadaro Thedford is Jay Electronica, a North-American rapper born in 1976 who grew up in the Magnolia Projects, New Orleans. Since 2007, the nature of his productions, somewhat more off-centre than usual, ended up garnering him lots of attention within the rap and hip-hop community. In 2008 he worked with Nas on the record “Untitled”, producing the track “Queens Get the Money”. But one of his main masterpieces is his debut composition “Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge)”, launched still in the time of MySpace. In 2009 he produced a track for Just Blaze, “Exhibit C”, and in 2010 he signed up to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label. Jay Electronica has yet to release a long-play but his resume includes some heavyweight collaborations, including with J-Dilla, which have conferred upon him the title of “myth”. He has lived in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Denver, and Detroit – due to this nomadic spirit, he has even been referred to as hip-hop's Jack Kerouac.
