Watts rapper Jay Rock accompanied by his TDE crew, Kendrick Lamar and SZA, release a funked-out extended version to “Easy Bake” off his well-received sophomore album 90059. Unveiled as ‘Traffic Jam’, the contemporary version comes with a new verse from Kendrick, after picking up where “Easy Bake” left off. In an interview with 2DopeBoyz, Jay Rock stated: “Actually that second record was going to be a whole different song, Kendrick did a verse to that too. It was going to be a whole different song for the album, but I had to break everything down. We just added it on to ‘Easy Bake.’ It was a whole different song, but it sound good together.” Produced by Antydote, thankgod4cody and Chris Calor, the “fresh out of the oven” track does not disappoint.
