Nardwuar caught up with Jay Rock during the watts MC’s Big Redemption Tour stop in Canada. Off the bat Nard gifts Rock an O.F.T.B. vinyl before asking him about his thoughts on the watts hip hop group.
He later talks being discovered by Top Dawg CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith while having a hair cut. “He just pulled up while I was getting a hair cut,” Rock explains. “Thought he was looking for me for something I did but it was all about music.”
Watch the full 12-minute interview below, where he also talks burger spots in Watts and early memories of himself and Kendrick Lamar. TDE’s newest signee Reason also makes an appearance.
