Don't Sleep: Jay Rock Drops New Song 'Money Trees Deuce'

After much waiting, TDE's first and most quiet gem finally releases a new track called "Money Trees Deuce."

Anyone who thinks Jay Rock was sleep the whole time his TDE cohorts were doing their thing in the spotlight is silly. To many, Top Dawg's first signee has overlooked by the prompt releases and tours of Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and even the junior members SZA and Isaiah Rashad.

In reality, he's been putting in the silent work to make sure his Follow Me Home followup is as perfect as can be. His focus has been paying off. Today, the Cali crew's head honcho freed up Rock's "Money Trees Deuce." All the real TDE fans should know this is an extention of sorts from K.Dot's good kid, m.A.A.d city cut, "Money Trees."

This is the second recent release from Jay. Last October, he dropped "Pay For It" with singer Chantal. Press play on the new track below and ready yourself for Jay Rock season.

Add-2 – Jim Crow the Musical Chicago rapper Add-2 may have one of the most creative projects of the year with Jim Crow the Musical. It's his first album in four years, but there was clearly thought and time put into this: the project is divided into four acts, and is narrated by actor Kadeem Harrison (A Different World, The Cosby Show). Add-2 tells VIBE: "Jim Crow the Musical is an intimate look into the beautiful but at times harsh experiences of being of Black in America. From addressing subjects such as police brutality, black love, and self-love, each song serves as another layer in the story."

Royce Da 5'9" Places Value On Black Life With "Black Savage" Feat. T.I., CyHi The Prynce, Sy Ari Da Kid, And White Gold

Royce Da 5’9″ has been relatively quiet this year. However, the Detroit rapper returns with a new record titled, "Black Savage," which has been released as part of the Jay-Z's Inspire Change Initiative.

Featuring T.I., CyHi the Prynce, T.I., Sy Ari Da Kid, and White Gold,"Black Savage" finds the rappers extolling black life, black culture, and black minds. Royce, who has been on a lyrical killing spree for the past three years, bodied the instrumental.

"I am the black savage/Ali and Foreman in Zaire fightin' for black magic rifles and flack jackets/ Momma was suicidal poppa had bad habits/ Product of true survival, rocker like Black Sabbath/ Hoppin up out the Chevy Pac, Biggie, Machiavelli/ OG like Nas or Reggie culture like Ox in Belly/ Vulgar like Akinyele focus like Dr. Sebi/ We did it your way but now the culture is boppin' to our Sinatra medley/ I'm limitless energy they gimmicks and imagery/ Kendrick, Cole and the Kennedys lyrical Holy Trinity," he raps.

Jay-Z and the NFL recently announced Inspire Change, a non-profit organization, back in August. One of the programs from the organization is Songs of the Season. Song of the Season will run throughout this year's NLF season and will showcase artists who will create a song for NFL promotions each month during the season.
