Jay Rock’s sophomore album, 90059, will be dropping shortly. Finally, right? Seems like we’ve been waiting for this since he had that memorable verse on “Money Trees” back in 2012. But no worries, fam, as the most anticipated track on the album, “Vice City,” is out now. It features the entire Black Hippy collective — Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and ScHoolboy Q are all in the mix — going in on Cardo’s roomy beat. “Vice City” is, however, missing a Tommy Vercetti sample somewhere. I personally find Rock and Lamar’s exaggerated deliveries and outrageous flows to be the best moments on the track, with Lamar in particular going HAM. (He throws off some crazy lines like “10th grade, I gave her all shade, but now she got some ass, I wanna hit it now” and “I just bought a new coat, I just might go broke, I can’t stand myself”.) Don’t sweat, Soul and Q also go bar-for-bar, too. Want to hear it? Check out this 90059 banger from the Black Hippy collective after the jump, and don’t you sleep on the new Jay Rock album either — cop it over at iTunes immediately. Support rap music!
