We're going to start this off with an instant classic: Kendrick and Jay Rock's "Money Trees." The track that had the whole world sayin' "ya bish" was nothing short of infectious.
10 Essential Jay Rock Tracks
Jay Rock - Money Trees Deuce
And then a couple months ago Jay chucked the "Deuce" at us. "Money Trees Deuce" might not quite have the pop appeal of part 1, but it's a great hip hop track that doesn't try too hard at all.
Jay Rock - Parental Advisory
If you aren't convinced that the west coast has the game on like, this one might change your opinion. With a new twist on that funky, ol' school sound, "Parental Advisory" is a certified banger.
Future Plans To Release Another Project This Year

An introduction to TDE's Jay Rock.
Jay Rock has made quite the name for himself over the past few years with strong features alongside his peers Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q. Just recently, the California native released his second full-length album 90059, so what better time to look back at some of the essential tracks he's delivered throughout his tenure, both from that album and prior.
Most obvious on the list are slam-dunk features like Kendrick's "Money Trees" or YG's "I Just Wanna Party," but some deeper cuts include Black Hippy one-offs and non-album singles. You'll be pleasantly surprised that Jay Rock has tracks going back to his start in 2003, so don't get caught up thinking this is some new cat on the scene; he's been around.
