Hip-hop is transitioning in a major way lately when it comes to new releases. With new streaming platforms such as Apple Music being launched, with the likes of TIDAL, Spotify, etc. making major strides, you can really sense the new direction our industry is headed.
Today, TDE’s own Jay Rock joins the fun and releases a brand new song titled “Gumbo” exclusively through Spotify. The grimy instrumental comes courtesy of J.LBS and the quiet Jay Rock lets off an arsenal of bars that’ll have you zoning out and reflecting on this rainy 4th of July.
With this new Spotify exclusive from Jay Rock, the streaming war is in full swing. Lil Wayne released his long-awaited new project Free Weezy Album exclusively through TIDAL at midnight today (July 4), Eminem gave the world “Phenomenal” and Pharrell gave us “Freedom” both exclusively through the newest service Apple Music; the popular new radio show Beats 1 via Apple Music has officially launched and Dr. Dre’s new show is premiering today. In other words, things couldn’t be more exciting in the hip-hop world then they are right now.
