Ahead of his new album Redemption that is set for release this Friday, TDE rapper Jay Rock has dropped a new song called “The Bloodiest” that will be seen on the new project. After dropping his highly successful single “WIN’ back in May, Rock continues the momentum seen in his latest release as he holds nothing back within his flow, rhymes, and overall delivery.
Compared to his latest singles “King’s Dead” and “WIN”, “The Bloodiest” contains the same hard-hitting lyrics and delivery heard within his previous songs. While there are a fair amount of similarities seen throughout all of his recent singles, his latest release contains a far darker and self-reflective set of themes. This can be seen in the opening lyrics
“The devil thought he had me, I was on back burners/Moon walkin’ fast, y’all respect my journey/Evil tappin’ in like the Feds was watchin’/No album, no dope, I was all out of options”.
Produced by Jake One, Allen Ritter, and Boi-1da, the instrumental itself relies on a more trap-based sound surrounded by crisp 808’s and deep kicks. It doesn’t contain much of a middle or high-end outside of the light and repetitive synth lead heard throughout the entire song. Because the higher range within “The Bloodiest” being almost non-existent, it helps the listener focus on Rock’s overall delivery and imagery within his lyrics.
While we have seen a fair number of high profile releases for the month of June that includes Kanye West and Kid Cudi, Jay Rock does not intend to get lost in all of the excitement. Instead, he plans to be at the forefront of the conversation.
