Jay Rock Will Be Out of the Hospital in a Few Days
While Kendrick Lamar was lighting up the Grammys with his incendiary performance this past Sunday (Feb. 14), his TDE rhyming partner Jay Rock was heading to the hospital after a bad bike accident. Now it looks like he'll be out of the hospital in a few days.
Earlier today (Feb. 20) Dangeroo Kipawaa, CEO of Top Dawg, posed a picture of Jay Rock in the hospital to Instagram. "Jay rock wanted y'all to know he's feeling better and on the road to recovery..He shud be out of here in a few days..." wrote Kipawaa.
Jay Rock is the big homie of the TDE crew and the first one to have scored a deal with Tech N9ne's Strange Music imprint.
The former XXL Freshman’s sophomore album 90059 was released digitally on Sept. 11 and hit shelves the following week. It was preceded by a mini documentary. Powered by the songs “Money Trees Deuce,” “Gumbo” and the title track “90059,” the LP debuted at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 chart with 19,000 equivalent album sales. The album features cameos from Top Dawg Ent. labelmates Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad and SZA, as well as Busta Rhymes.
Last fall, Rock spoke to us about his growth from his first album to his latest LP. “I’m just getting older,” he said. “In the process of growing. That’s just like a butterfly or any type of animal, it don’t ever stay the same. Just like plants. Flowers grow into all type of shit but it endures the storm. You got your rainy days. That’s basically me. I went through so much trial and tribulations and certain situations… Lesson learned. That’s what’s building me up. I learned a lot business-wise and just still being a student of the game. That’s what helped me a lot to change a lot since back then. I’ve been going back and working on my craft. Every opportunity, I’m trying to think of new flows.”
