Local Administrator Hits it Big

Singer/Newsman Jason Lea Signs with Rock-a-Fella Records

What started as a simple flipped faculty meeting certainly exceeding expectations for one local principal. "I just wanted to let my staff know about the duty free lunch. I never expected a phone call from Jay-Z."

After sending the video to his staff, CIS teacher Mark Burlison forwarded it on to several friends. The video ended up on YouTube and became a viral sensation, gathering 242,000 views in the first 2 days on the site.

J-Lea is now the newest member of Rock-a-Fella Records, Jay-Z's record label. "We are beyond excited to have J-Lea join our stable of talent. He just gets on the mic and tells it like it is, and we value that here at Rock-a-Fella."

Lea will start recording in June on his new album, "I Got MAP Test Problems, but PBS Ain't One."
