Like the Game before him, the Watts-born Rock uses his long-awaited debut, Follow Me Home, to build a shrine to the realer-than-thou mentality of the old Death Row family, brick by thugged-out brick. Thankfully, he matches his reverence with skill, blitzing his minimalist beats with a sweaty, fervent flow that recounts a lifetime of watching out for death and working the hustle. The guest list (Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Rick Ross) is impressive too, though the satellite players sometimes introduce too much polish — like a Whole Foods glistening on skid row. B+
