Jay Rock Drops ‘Redemption’ Album Featuring Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and More
Coming in three years after his sophomore project, 90059, the Watts, Calif. rapper's new offering has 13 new bangers. Not bogged down with features, which allows Rock to properly shine, the LP does contain a few assists from Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Future, Jeremih and SZA.
The album is spearheaded by the victorious lead single, "Win." Rock dropped the Kendrick Lamar-assisted video for the track in May, followed by a trailer for the album, which features throwback footage of the rapper in his Nickerson Gardens public housing complex stomping ground. "Jay Rock is about that struggle, that real music," Lamar says in the clip. "He's always there, physically, mentally, spiritually, because that's who he is."
Rock was in a serious motorcycle accident in 2016. The post-healing process birthed Redemption, which was originally slated for a 2017 release. "I was just healing up, and when I healed up, I just locked in the studio," Rock said in an interview earlier this year. TDE's The Championship Tour wraps up on Saturday (June 16) in Pittsburgh.
