Jay Rock’s Album Will be a Rap “Who’s Who”

For months now we have been banging on and on about Jay Rock and every new single of his that comes to light, in anticipation for the release of his 90059 project. It would appear that finally we have some traction, and that we are moving ever so closer to the eventual release date.

Jay Rock and Top Dawg Entertainment recently held a listening party for the sophomore album, with the VIP event also including a discussion where the TDE rapper answered questions regarding the upcoming project. The event, moderated by Rikki Martinez of US radio station Real 92.3 was followed by rumours of potential collaborations within the album, and plenty of guest features. Rikki herself took to Twitter to shed some light on the upcoming 90059.

A track featuring the entirety of Black Hippy? Yes please. Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock with some back and forth flow? Where do I sign?! It is also interesting to note that even Busta Rhymes has landed himself on the album, a rapper who has been fading in and out of mainstream attention for the past few years.

Good news aside, there is still no word on a release date, but after such a buzz after this listening session, we can only hope for a drop in the near future. For now we only have a quote from Jay Rock direct from the discussion panel.

Sigh. I’m gonna go and bump Gumbo on repeat. AGAIN.
