King PIN: Jay Electronica's Obsession With Blackberry Messenger


Jay Electronica and a few of his BBM friends.

Since getting his monumental "Exhibit C" record played on Hot 97 and enduring all of the accompanying challenger freestyles, Jay Electronica's probably been collecting more industry contacts than Superhead at a DJ Khaled video shoot. The New Orleans rapper, who's never applied to the industry's standards of music release and promotion, has also managed to break new ground in fan-artist interaction, repeatedly posting his personal Blackberry Messenger (BBM) pin number to twitter (@JayElectronica), giving his Blackberry wielding followers, and the world at large, a way to contact him wherever he is, whenever they feel like it.

The idea seemed noble, if not masochistic, until Jay "Telephonica" began posting mystery pin numbers, alluding to posting the contacts of other celebs including Talib Kweli, famed music scribe Dream Hampton and even Diddy. The latest of these even came with a warning to "hurry and add because when they realize i did this they are gonna shut phone down." Check out some of the incriminating tweets below, and let us know if you've successfully added him and actually conversed over BBM...
