Jay Rock – 90059 Review

This album has a great performance from Jay Rock, but his choice of production, while the beats are enjoyable, can make the songs seem quirky and difficult to follow. Individual good components, but not great put together.

The production is good with interesting sounds that make the beats interesting. Each beat is individual with not a lot of confusion between the songs. They could stand on thier own two feet a bit more rather than relying on the artist but at least it gives Jay Rock plenty of room to show what he can do.

The lyricism is good without being overly complicated or confusing. Jay Rock keeps it relatively straight forward, packing his rhymes with delivery and messages to keep the listener interested. Some more complexity could show that Jay Rock is still evolving as an artist, but what he does here shows that he is still making good music.

The features are great and compliment Jay Rock very well. Some showcase his label mates trying different techniques, while others do just enough to enhance Jay Rock on the tracks. There is a great blend of people for the eleven tracks on this album that help build the project.

Overall, this album shows that Jay Rock can hang out with the best of them when it comes to signiture songs, but may want ot look at making some more radio friendly type songs to gain more of  an audiance.
