Earlier this month Jay Rock dropped his newest single, “Money Trees Deuce,” which was a sequel to the awesome Kendrick Lamar track in both its title and song’s spirit. Now Rock is sharing the official visuals for the track. It’s Jay Rock so you’re gonna wanna press play. Check it after the jump.
Finally, some new Jay Rock! We’re remaining hopeful that he’s next up for an album release because he’s someone rap needs to drop a full length project. And Jay Rock’s return is quite awesome with this equally dope song title that’s got us thinking crazy. And for the second “Money Trees” Rock raps about those similar themes as in the first: making money and maintaining in the hood. Listen to “Money Trees Deuce” after the jump.
Last night Kendrick Lamar threw the first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers’ game against the San Francisco Giants. Compared to Jack White’s pitch at the Tigers game last summer (and 50 Cent’s pathetic attempt at one), Kendrick did a pretty well. Read our review of his latest album, To Pimp a Butterfly here. Watch his pitch after the jump.
It’s no secret, Ab-Soul can spit. And that’s precisely what he does on this new joint entitled “47 Bars.” Produced by Alchemist, Soulo dropped the track via Soundcloud and wrote on his Twitter page that he “might get dropped from the label for this.” Check out “47 Bars” after the jump.
Ab-Soul teams up with fellow Californian Short Dawg for the visuals for “Addiction” off of Short Dawg’s forthcoming Drank Sinatra & The Scripts project. Peep the party cut video after the jump.
For the sixth episode of Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary season Top Dawg Entertainment’s star pupil Kendrick Lamar hit the stage as the musical guest alongside guest host Woody Harrelson. Kendrick performed two songs, one being his radio hit, The Isley Brothers sampled “i” and Jay Rock’s “Pay for It”. For “i” Kendrick took the stage with unkempt hair and blacked-out contacts (see: above photo), making reference to Method Man whose debut record Tical was released 20 years ago that day. Check out Kendrick’s hyped, energetic SNL performances after the jump.
