On Thursday, Jay Rock pulled the trigger on unleashing the jam-packed visual to the masses.
Jay Rock’s latest visual off Redemption is here. The clip for “Wow Freestyle” shows Rock and Kendrick Lamar driving around their native Los Angeles neighborhoods in between VHS filtered videos of the same images. The video follows fellow Redemption visuals “King’s Dead” featuring Future, “WIN,” “The Bloodiest,” “OSOM” featuring J. Cole, “ES Tales,” “Rotation 112th,” and “Tap Out” featuring Jeremih. It was directed by Jack Begert who previously worked with Rock on the “OSOM” and “ES Tales.” (SPIN)
A few weeks ago, Jay’s “WIN” smash single earned props as the most popular TV song in August.
Jay Rock’s hit “WIN” rules The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart, powered by Tunefind and Shazam, for August, thanks to its appearance in Ballers’ season 4 opener on Aug. 12. Rankings for the Top TV Songs chart are based on song and show data provided by Tunefind and ranked using a formula blending respective Shazam tags, as well as sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music during the corresponding period.

Rock is aiming to put out an immediate Redemption album follow-up before 2019.
“I’ve been thinking about that every day,” he told Rap-Up. “I’m ready to get back in the studio now… Ever since the big reviews on Redemption, I’m ready to go back in and just come with another project right now before the year is up. Hopefully, man, y’all might get that.” (Rap-Up)
Jay also credited strong fan support for fueling his non-stop work grind.
“It’s just giving me more motivation and inspiration to keep doing what I do,” added Rock. “I’ve been doing it for a long time. For those who’ve been rocking with me since day one and for those that’s new that’s been rooting for me, I appreciate it. That’s what’s keeping me going. It’s just giving me the fire and the flames to keep pushing.” (Rap-Up)
