The title track of Jay Rock's second album 90059, this is named after the zip code of his hometown of Watts. The song was produced by by frequent collaborator Tae Beast of Top Dawg Entertainment in-house production team Digi+Phonics and features Lance Skiiiwalker.
The song's music video features fellow TDE artist SZA driving a masked and straightjacketed Jay Rock to an abandoned area where she frees him. The clip's concept references the rapper's long-awaited and often-delayed second studio album. "You haven't seen Jay Rock in four years," Top Dawg Entertainment President Dave Free told MTV News. "You've seen him on features and small pieces like that, but you haven't seen him in four years with his own material. So, the concept was, he's been gone and he's insane at this point. Then, SZA metaphorically broke him out, or mentally broke him out."
Jay Rock raps about little kids ("snotty nosed rascals") carrying guns ("big ratchet toters") in his hood. MTV News asked Rock why this was important to highlight. He replied: "Because I was one of them. Growing up in the hood, young n----s is out here starving, trying to get it. I was one of them, trying to do what I had do to make a dollar."
"I feel these young n----s out here that be trying to grind. I respect it. That's why I touched on that. Everything is a repeated cycle, but I still try to be that big brother that might come through like, 'You could do the right thing.'"
Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
