Hov throws one up for Rock.
Jay Rock's Redemption album to feature JAY-Z

Update: In an interview with Complex following the release of Redemption, Jay Rock explained that, during his New York listening event, he unintentionally suggested that he had a record with JAY-Z for the album because he was "lit."

"I said I wanted a Hov [verse]!" Rock said. "I wanted it because the record with me and Cole... see, people… you know, I was lit that night. Please forgive me. I was kinda lit." 

The original article follows.

On June 15, Jay Rock will release his third studio album, Redemption, which we learned last evening will feature several big-name guests, including JAY-Z.

Following TDE's Championship Tour stop at New York's Madison Square Garden last night, the label hosted a private listening session for the album at The Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn, where Rock previewed seven songs off the upcoming LP.

While Rock wouldn't disclose the song's title, he did label his collaboration with JAY-Z as a "dream," according to DJBooth staff members in attendance. 

In addition to "King's Dead," the album's lead single featuring Kendrick Lamar and Future, Redemption will feature a second collaborative cut with Lamar, which Rock said will remind fans of the "old days." Additional guests include Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih.

A video for the album's second single, "WIN," co-produced by Vinylz and Boi-1da, is now available on YouTube.

From drinking backstage with Hov to working with him on your album. What a difference nine years can make.
