Jay Rock, the rap titan from Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), has left fans buzzing with excitement as they await his forthcoming album. In a recent appearance on Justin Credible's show on L.A.'s Power 106, Jay Rock demonstrated his lyrical prowess by freestyling over a classic early-2000s JAY-Z track, The Watcher 2, originally produced by Dr. Dre and Scott Storch.
In the freestyle, Jay Rock delivered powerful verses, touching on themes of street life, resilience, and historical figures like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X. His sharp wordplay and thought-provoking lyrics showcased his continued excellence in the rap game.
Fans have been eagerly anticipating Jay Rock's new album, and he has been teasing its release throughout the summer. In a previous interview, he expressed his commitment to creating high-quality music that listeners won't want to skip, following the success of his 2018 album, Redemption.
TDE founder Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith had previously announced Jay Rock's upcoming project, along with releases from other label artists. The first single from Jay Rock's new album, titled Eastside, dropped in late June, further fueling anticipation for the full project.
Redemption, Jay Rock's last album, was released in 2018 and received critical acclaim. It debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart, with standout tracks featuring Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Future, SZA, Jeremih, and more. The album's single King's Dead even earned a Grammy for Best Rap Performance.
As fans eagerly await Jay Rock's next musical offering, his freestyle over JAY-Z's classic track serves as a tantalizing taste of what's to come from this accomplished artist.
