This year, Jay Rock has become the major breakout artist. The difference between him and the others is that he’s been here. Back in 2010, he called Ice Cube out, having a debate about the future of hip hop, on the West Coast.
Jay Rock was the first TDE artist to make major headlines and he put the label on the map. This led to Kendrick Lamar having a breakout year, in 2011, leading to the label getting a deal with Interscope. In the time since then, Kendrick has opened major doors for Rock, in return.
Recently, Jay Rock stopped by Hot 97, talking to Ebro, Laura Stylez, and Rosenberg. They talked about Jay Rock’s history with Kendrick Lamar, and their first meeting. Now that he’s a major figure, he’s left the street life behind him, speaking on that, his motorcycle accident, and more.
