Jay Rock may have held back from dropping any major solo material this past year, but his verse on Kendrick Lamar’s “Money Trees” was enough to remind the world that Watts’ Finest was sharper than ever.
In an exclusive interview with L.A. Weekly, Jay Rock discussed his transition from Warner Bros. to Strange Music and also addressed his highly-praised guest feature on “Money Trees”, reflecting on how the scene stealing verse came together.
Still looking ahead, Jay Rock dropped some words for fans waiting to hear another solo release:
I’m going to take y’all on a ride. That’s my mindset. That’s my vibe. I want to go over peoples’ heads with this one. They know the typical Jay Rock from Watts project, but I want to go deeper with this. That’s what I’m building right now — a whole new sound.
Jay Rock also went on to tease fans a bit by suggesting a new track could be on the way very soon.
With the TDE camp taking over hip hop, it won’t be long before listeners get an entirely new vibe and direction from Jay Rock.
