The album was supported by the singles "All My Life (In the Ghetto)" and "Hood Gone Love It". His second studio album 90059 was released in September 2015. It was supported by the singles "Money Trees Deuce", "Gumbo" and the title track. In June 2018, Rock released his third studio album Redemption. He would end up winning a Grammy award for the album's single "King's Dead". All three albums have achieved relative critical and commercial success.
