The TDE spitter chops it up with The L.A. Leakers.

(AllHipHop News) A new project from Jay Rock is coming. The first taste from the LP came in the form of the track "King's Dead" which features Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake.

Besides being the lead single for Jay Rock's upcoming full length, the record will also appear on Black Panther: The Album. The Top Dawg Entertainment emcee stopped by Power 106 to discuss both projects.

"I was in the studio working on my album and Dot [Lamar] was next door," recalled Rock. "I walked in and he was like, 'You want in on this Black Panther project?' I'm thinking he's on some revolutionary sh-t."

The Watts rep continued, "He started laughing. He was like, 'Nah, the Marvel movie - Black Panther.' He played the beat, he had the hook, and I just did my thing."

When it comes to his own third studio album, Jay Rock promises the set will show his growth. He added, "You grow, you get wiser. You go through trials and tribulations, and you're going to hear it in the music."

The interview also included The L.A. Leakers wondering about the long-delayed Black Hippy (Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul) project. They even got TDE CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith on the phone.

"If I tell you, I gotta kill you," responded Top Dawg after being asked when the Black Hippy project would be released.
