Jay Rock Will (Finally) Release New Album 'Redemption' on June 15

The long-overdue follow-up to Jay Rock's 2015 album '90059' is set to arrive in less than a month.
Publish date:
Jay Rock Redemption Album, 2018

On June 15, Jay Rock will (finally) release his third studio album, Redemption, the rapper announced on Monday via Instagram.

While the album's full tracklist has yet to be revealed, Redemption will include the previously-released "King's Dead," which features Kendrick Lamar and Future and doubled as a single on the TDE-produced soundtrack for Black Panther, as well as the newly-released "Win."

Unlike Jay Rock's last album, 90059, which was independently released by TDE in 2015, Redemption is an Interscope release.

Redemption will be TDE's second solo album release of 2018 (November by SiR), following a 2017 campaign that featured two highly-acclaimed albums in Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. and SZA's Ctrl.

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Jay Rock's Redemption would be TDE's first solo album release of 2018. It is the second, following the January release of SiR's TDE debut, November.
