Jay Rock releases the official music video for the new “Ambition” Freestyle track. Read the lyrics for the track.
Jay Rock, one of the original members of Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), has released the official music video for his new track “Ambition (Freestyle).” This release comes after a period of relative silence from the artist, with his last full-length album, “Redemption,” dropping in 2018.
While details about Jay Rock’s forthcoming album, rumored to be titled “Eastside Johnny,” remain scarce, “Ambition (Freestyle)” could potentially be one of its lead singles. Earlier this year, he released “Too Fast (Pull Over),” featuring Latto and Anderson .Paak, and “Eastside” with Kal Banx, which could also be part of the upcoming project.
The “Ambition (Freestyle)” clocks in at just over a minute and a half, but Jay Rock uses this brief runtime effectively. His lyrics convey a sense of urgency and determination as he emphasizes his commitment to his path to success. Lines like “No myth, no fable, witness the rise of a beast / Gotta live it up, you only get one / Nothing’s impossible, I’m grinding ’til the mission is done” highlight his unwavering ambition and work ethic.
The music video complements the track’s energy, featuring visuals that capture Jay Rock’s dedication to his craft. While fans eagerly await more details about “Eastside Johnny,” these lead singles suggest that Jay Rock is gearing up for a powerful return to the music scene.
Yeah, fuck a ego
Bullshit feelings, I let ’em go
Ten out of ten, holding them in, it will show
East Side doing the most
No, just stacking my chips
Staying prepared for the shits
My ambition won’t allow me to quit
V8 motor my drive
Cocaine in my lines
My name holding this weight
East Side Johnny the God
I’m controlling my fate
Had to jump off the trail
No more running in place
Lockin’ somethin they dread
Look it’s all in their face
Niggas ain’t loving the fake
Still got clips on the waist
I ain’t begging for bread, still I rise like yeast
Every day is a song, I live my life on the beat
And when I sit at the table there’s no surprises, a feast
No myth, no fable, witness the rise of a beast
Gotta live it up, you only get one
Nothing’s impossible, I’m grinding ’til the mission is done
