Jay Rock – ‘Checkmate’ [Song]

Mar 28 2012

Jay Rock

Jay Rock is back in the booth doing what he does best!

Peep game on “Checkmate” produced by The Futuristiks.

Over a beat of old-school funk, Jay Rock raps about this game we call life, in which survival is just as much a mental challenge as anything else.

Right off the bat, Jay Rock addresses the fact that he’s still as street as ever:

“They say a nigga can’t rhyme no more
About crime no more
About crack in my drawers and bucking that .44
Cause I was with Tech on a 44-city tour.”

After a short hiatus, it’s great to hear Jay Rock doing what he does best: making music for the streets, by the streets.
