Music Recommendation – Single – Jay Rock ft. Kendrick Lamar and Chantal, Pay For It

Fresh off the grill today is Jay Rock’s Pay For It. I have gotten a bit behind in new music the past couple of days but I am sure you can guess the biggest reason I felt the need to listen to this track. If you guessed Kendrick, you had a 1/3 chance and knew my Lamar man-crush anyways, so no cookies for you.

Jay Rock channels The Game with his new sound in Pay For It, while Kendrick Lamar resembles Eminem at times to my ears. We are all opinionated and though their voices do not sound very similar, their rap style comes close to these two. The song is tough and gritty, making it an empowering and motivational Hip-Hop/Rap track and rises on each repeat of the chorus by Chantal.

Because these two have worked on successful songs together before, this formula had to be a big hit. Overall, I would rate the song at 9.75/10. This is a seriously solid rap song, with a unique beat and some amazing rap verse from Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar. You can give the song a listen below:
