Hear Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock Reunite on Fiery ‘Easy Bake’
Jay Rock, a member of Kendrick Lamar‘s Black Hippy collective, will release his new LP 90059 in the coming weeks, and on Thursday, the rapper shared the album cut “Easy Bake” featuring Top Dawg labelmate Lamar. The song, which premiered on Sirius XM’s Shade 45 (via Pitchfork), finds the Los Angeles rapper boasting on the chorus, “This shit fresh out of the oven.”
Rock and Lamar’s chemistry was first showcased on good kid, m.A.A.d. city‘s standout “Money Trees,” and the two rappers reignite that fire on “Easy Bake.” Rock carries the track for two minutes before Lamar emerges with a brief, laidback verse. However, the loopy beat picks up and soon Rock and Lamar are firing lines back and forth between each other, delivering an interplay that’s rare in current hip-hop features.
90059 is available for pre-order now at iTunes, but Jay Rock has yet to reveal a firm release date. With the release, Top Dawg Entertainment is testing out a unique method where the amount of pre-orders will dictate how soon 90059 will arrive. The more pre-orders, the quicker 90059 comes out, with September 4th currently the rumored earliest release date for the digital version of the album.
When the album is unleashed, it will feature “Money Trees Deuce,” the Lamar-less sequel to the good kid cut. 90059 will also feature Busta Rhymes, Isaiah Rashad, Lance Skiiiwalker and a Black Hippy reunion of Rock, Lamar, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q.
