Jay Rock’s Still Dreaming Of Money Trees On His New Single

The TDE MC returns with “Money Trees Deuce.”

June 03, 2015

Jay Rock hasn't released an album since his debut, Follow Me Home, in 2011. It's a testament to Rock's abilities as a rapper that he has managed to maintain fan interest in the subsequent four years with a string of impressive features on songs from Schoolboy Q, Ty Dolla $ign, YG, and Isaiah Rashad. Most famously, he appeared next to Kendrick Lamar on "Money Trees," and that stellar performance serves as the jumping-off point for Rock's excellent new single, "Money Trees Deuce," which hit the internet last night. The beat, produced by Flippa and J Proof, is smooth and fluid. Rock calmly declares that it's his time to shine: "I told my niggas if you hold me back / From pursuin', ain't no comin' back / Pick your poison, tell me what you do with that."
