Jay Rock has been performing this cut from his debut album, Follow Me Home, for a minute now, and it’s refreshing to hear the recorded, mastered version instead of random YouTube clips floating around. The Watts emcee has endured a long and bumpy road to score a definitive release date and judging from the fact that it’s available for pre-order most likely means July 26th is set in stone. And while a part of me is still skeptical as to whether he’s a good fit with those weirdoes over at Strange Music, there isn’t much to question about his label situation if he’s able to stick to his roots and make soulful, close to home records like “Hood Gone Love.”
Oh yeah, and before I forget, Kendrick completely spazzes out.
