JAY ROCK – EASY BAKE [FT. KENDRICK LAMAR]

We haven’t seen the phrase being thrown around social media yet, but we’re pretty sure it’s now ‘90059’ Season.  Having already released title track ‘90059‘ and ‘Gumbo‘ from the upcoming project, Jay Rock releases a new track featuring none other than TDE labelmate Kendrick Lamar.  ‘Easy Bake’, premiered on Shade 45.  Stream below via SoundCloud.
