TDE rapper Jay Rock appeared on the latest episode of Pitchfork’s ‘VERSES’ series where he breaks down one of his favorite songs: 2Pac’s “Heartz of Men.”
Rock said he first heard the song when his uncle was playing it outside in a parking lot in the projects. “Man he means a lot,” Rock said about the late rapper. “He instilled that realness and that raw, you get what I’m saying, and you could tell it comes from the heart.”
He then went on to spit some the lyrics and explains how they relate to him. Check out the video above.
In related news, Rock recently announced a U.S. tour in support of his Redemption album. He also opened up the 2018 BET Awards with his Black Panther single, “Win.”
