Jay Rock Talks ‘Redemption’ Album, Possible Black Hippy Album, Positivity and More

Two years ago, TDE’s first signee Jay Rock was in a near fatal bike accident. In his first interview after the accident he told us how he was fortunate to not only live through that experience, but fully recover. Ever since, the L.A. native has been living life off the advice of his OG’s to remain hungry. And that has lead to his latest album Redemption. Jay Rock stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about the album and much more.

Watch the interview below:

Redemption dropped the same weekend as Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Everything Is Love and Nas’ Nasir albums. So it is easy to understand how it may be overshadowed with all the hype around those projects. But if you sleep on this album you will be playing yourself. The 13 track album features Jeremih, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Sza and Future.

Listen Below:
