TDE still runnin’ things. After last year’s criminally underrated LP Follow Me Home, Jay Rock’s been pretty quiet save for a couple guest spots on his fellow Black Hippy members’ joints. Rock teased the release of new material earlier in the day, then dropped this monstrous track on us, with a beefy beat courtesy of Dave Free. Not sure what Jay’s referring to with “Yola” (coke? bastardizing YOLO?) but whatever it is, I’m down with it. He’s definitely stepped up his lyricism too. Jay Rock might be a link in the Top Dawg chain, but he’s anything but weak; he can push underwhelming joints on swagger alone.
