After dropping a bunch of very good one-off tracks in the past few months, Black Hippy tough Jay Rock has finally announced his sophomore album 90059, named for the Compton/Watts zip code. We’ve already heard the eerie, unhinged title track, and now it’s been given a new video directed by PANAMÆRA and the Little Homies. The video actually features a few minutes of new music, beginning with a slightly ominous instrumental intro and then segueing into a short, warmly psychedelic, and very funky track by astral R&B singer and TDE labelmate SZA. SZA also co-stars in the video, driving Jay Rock around while he’s restrained by a straitjacket and a Hannibal Lecter-esque bite mask. When she finally unleashes him, he pops a few adrenaline pills and launches into the frenzied “90059.” Watch below.
90059 still doesn’t have an official release date, but 24 Urban reports that it might be out as soon as this Friday, 8/21. The album will have a Black Hippy posse cut with Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q, and Busta Rhymes will also feature on a song.
