Jay Rock is back and he brought some of his finest product with him.
Here’s another gem from the cutting room floor.
Just in time for summer, Jay Rock takes a trip back through memory lane with K. Young for “Back In The Days”.
Dropping in for Toca Tuesdays with DJ Tony Touch on Shade45 Sirius Satellite radio, Black Hippy took part in the traditional on air freestyle.
Putting them in the hot seat, DJ Tony Touch spun several records for the West Coast collective to handle bars over. Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q took turns spitting impromptu verses, with Kendrick and Jay Rock having particularly killer freestyles. With so many mixtapes and freestyle apperances over the years, it’s easy to see why these West Coast veterans have no trouble ripping apart any beat.

There’s no doubt about it, after numerous delays on Follow Me Home and shaky setbacks, Jay Rock is about to put it down for the entire West Coast. Rejuvenated and hungrier than ever, Jay Rock is currently out on the All 6′s And 7′s Tour promoting the July 26 release of his debut album, Follow Me Home.
While out on the road, Jay took the time to speak with Phresh N’ Phamous Radio regarding the release of his album, the relationship he has built with Strange Music, and whether or not he still keeps in contact with Lil Wayne.
Jay also touches on new artists he would like to work with, including Wiz Khalifa and Trae The Truth. Continue reading
Letting loose over Eminem’s hit single, “Crack A Bottle”, Jay Rock gives the drinking anthem a West Coast makeover. With his signature rugged and worn voice, Jay barks over the instrumental with a hunger deep in his words. Leaving no room for error, Jay rhymes:
I’m sight to the blind, noise to the deaf
pull a nine if he’s sleeping on me, then let em rest
then leave his body to the rest
mortician hook him up,get him a nice black dress
“Crack A Bottle” is another gritty and street inspired freestyle from the best Watts has to offer. Click here to listen to the full song.
While on the road Jay Rock took the time to give the guys at Hood Hype an interview. Jay Rock discusses his signing with Strange Music, citing his four years with Warner Bros. “Bigger and better things” are on the horizon with his signing with Strange, according to Jay. “These guys grind like they’re still hungry, and I got that same attitude!” Jay Rock reiterates often how much he likes being on the road: “that’s where it’s at, man!” The interview hints at Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne expressing interest in doing possible tours with Tech N9ne. Jay Rock goes on to discuss Black Hippy, the group under his Top Dawg Entertainment label that consists of himself, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q. Could they be signed to Strange Music as well? Jay Rock hints that it’s a possibility (“that’s what we’re going for”). All in all, Jay Rock comes across as someone who’s very happy with his new situation and someone who’s got a bright future in the rap game ahead of him.
