Top Dawg on Jay Rock's New Album: "We Are Getting Close to Lift Off"

TDE is two-for-two in 2017 with Kendrick's 'DAMN.' and SZA's 'Ctrl'—can they remain perfect?

TDE's original success story, Jay Rock, is inching closer to the release of his third full-length album.

On Tuesday (August 22), TDE head honcho Top Dawg shared a short video clip on Instagram of Rock and TDE engineer MixedByAli mixing the emcee's forthcoming, currently-untitled new album. 

"We are getting close to lift off ppl [sic]," Top Dawg wrote.

Shit bangs, right? (Don't act like you didn't hit play a second time.)

It's been nearly two years since Jay Rock's last album, 90059, in part because of a motorcycle accident that required the Watts native to undergo multiple surgeries, but his record label hasn't exactly been twiddling their thumbs.

TDE has released six full-length albums and an EP over the past 23 months, including Kendrick Lamar's chart-topping DAMN., ScHoolboy Q's GRAMMY-nominated Blank Face LP, SZA's long-awaited Ctrl, Isaiah Rashad's The Sun's Tirade, Ab-Soul's Do What Thou Wilt., Lance Skiiiwalker's Introverted Intuition, and SiR's Her Too.
