Top Dawg Entertainment’s putting in work this year. The label closed out 2022 on a high note with releases from Ab-Soul and SZA. However, Top Dawg confirmed that they had more in store for the year. Reason’s on pace to light on the year with a new project. Although it’s been nearly three years since New Beginnings, he’s released a string of singles, from records like “Barely Miss” to The Game-assisted, “Impalas & Hydraulics.” On top of the number of freestyles he dropped, Reason is evidently in go-mode.
To kick off the campaign for his next body of work, the rapper released “At It Again” earlier this year. With production from Coleman, Motif Alumni, and Tariq, who deliver a triumphant soundscape, Reason comes out the gates swinging with anthemic flows and instantly quotable bars. However, he leveled up the record today with the release of the official remix with a little help from Jay Rock.
Jay Rock Joins Reason On Remix
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Jay Rock. However, he didn’t disappoint fans with the release of his new verse on “At It Again.” Joining forces with Reason, Rock comes through with a firm reminder of why he’s one of the coldest MCs on TDE. Rock glides through the horn-heavy production for his first offering of the year and matches Reason’s high energy. It’s a verse that highlights Jay Rock’s successes from getting it out of the mud to establishing himself in hip-hop. Thankfully, he also gave fans a little update on what he has in store for this year. “Top Dawg hit me like ‘we at it again,’ Rock comin’ soon, new bag for the win,” he raps.
Earlier this year, Top Dawg confirmed that there were a handful of projects from the label on the way. He confirmed Jay Rock would drop this year while also hinting at a potential Black Hippy EP. Although no update surrounding the reunion of the rap supergroup has surfaced since, it’s been five years since Redemption so we’re long overdue for a new album from Jay Rock. Check out the “At It Again” remix above.
