Top Dawg Entertainment’s Jay Rock isn’t scared of a little friendly competition. The hip-hop artist has dished on dropping his new Redemption album the same week as Nas and The Carters.

In a new “The Breakfast Club” interview, Rock said he felt honored to put out the new studio effort with NASIR and Everything Is Love both now streaming.

“Nah, not at all,” Rock said when asked if he was upset about having to compete with the music veterans and their new releases. “Shout-out to them. The way I look at it is it puts me up there with the greats. It feels good. I’ve always been a fan of Nas. Shout-out to him. It’s a beautiful thing just to be mentioned amongst those people.” (“The Breakfast Club”)

This week, G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T saluted Rock’s must-hear new release.
