Jay Rock Says New Black Hippy Album Will Arrive In 2012

The Left Coast spitter also speaks on gangs and what their intentions should be.

Jay Rock released his debut album Follow Me Home on July 26th, via Strange Music, and KarmaLoop TV caught up with the Los Angeles, California native to talk about his current projects, including his work with Black Hippy.

Rock revealed that he and fellow group members Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q plan to release a new album after securing their individual projects. “My insight on Black Hippy is that we’re up next man, we’re just four talented young brothers that’s doing this good music,” he said, adding that fans should expect a new project from the collective in the beginning of 2012. 

The West Coat rapper also touched on the subject of gangs, explaining what he felt were the benefits of having a close-knit crew. “With gangs, there could be a positive outlook because it takes the older guys to come school these younger guys on the right roles,” he explained. “I’ve got big homies that done been through the same thing I’ve been through and they made it out, changed their life and they come back and snatch young cats up and lecture them and let them know right way to do it.”

“We just need more father figures and more older people to come and school these youth, because there will be a lost generation,” he continued. “And that’s what a gang’s supposed to be, protecting family and doing what you’ve got to do for your loved ones.”

During a recent studio session, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg praised Jay Rock's new album and commended him for representing the West Coast.
