"Long Beach and Compton command attention as West Coast rap epicenters, but Jay Rock is here to put Watts on the map. The rapper caught fire through underground mixtapes and the Lift Me Up EP before blowing up with All My Life in the Ghetto. It's a biographical tale of Jay Rock's come-up inside and outside his native Nickerson Gardens projects. Backed by sweet strings and a sung hook, All My Life stacks up nicely against Biggie's 'Juicy' and the Game's 'Hate It or Love It', but with an upgrade: Lil Wayne drops a sick, 16-bar cosign." -- iTunes Store
