4. Jay Rock
Overall Points: 11
Overall Rank: Tied for 10th
In our last Rap Power Rankings we were excited to see Jay Rock's face. TDE's original rapper has been playing in the background for years, supporting his comrades while waiting his turn.
This month he finally dropped his first project in four years, 90059. It was everything a TDE fan could have hoped for. It's easily Jay Rock's best project, and "Vice City" is making it into “song-of-the-year” conversations.
Honestly, Rock doesn't have the star power that's going to make him a regular in the Rankings—he’s far more Watts than Hollywood—but for this month it's finally Jay Rock's turn in the spotlight. Take a bow, sir. You deserve it.
