TDE Engineer MixedByAli Hints At An Upcoming Jay Rock Project

Is the Watts wordsmith set to return with another album?

(AllHipHop News) Top Dawg Entertainment's 2017 is ending with DAMN by Kendrick Lamar and Ctrl by SZA topping dozens of year-end album lists. It appears TDE is already looking to drop a Jay Rock project in the new year.

The label's in-house engineer Derek "MixedByAli" Ali posted an Instagram picture of the Watts emcee in the studio. The photo's caption read, "Soon Come [Jay Rock] #TDE #EngineEars."

Jay Rock's current discography consists of 2011's Follow Me Home and 2015's 90059. The Black Hippy member recently appeared at TDE's Holiday Concert & Toy Giveaway event along with his musical colleagues Kendrick, SZA, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Isaiah Rashad, and SiR.

MixedByAli recently got great news when he found out his stolen hard drive, which reportedly contained more than $1 million worth of original music, was recovered by police. It's not clear if the device contained tunes by Jay Rock.
