After starting the year off with Isaiah Rashad's 'Cilvia Demo,' TDE lets some of its heavy hitters take the spotlight. ScHoolboy Q's long-awaited album, 'Oxymoron,' finally hit stores this week, and he's getting even more shine by appearing alongside his Black Hippy brother Kendrick Lamar on the cover of Billboard's new issue.

Q dons a pink hoodie as he sits beside the 'good kid,  m.A.A.d city' creator, both glaring intensely, but this news isn't solely about a good look and mean posturing. The accompanying cover story reveals that a new Kendrick Lamar album will be one of the six projects TDE plans to release this year.

Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith, Top Dawg Entertainment's CEO, revealed that Lamar's sophomore effort should drop in September. Although there's no singles for that opus yet, the 'Poetic Justice' rapper has been keeping busy by scoring some rock collaborations, including one with Imagine Dragons and another one with Tame Impala for the upcoming 'Divergent' soundtrack.

TDE is also planning a Black Hippy album featuring all four members -- Lamar, Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul -- sometime in 2014 as well. So there's a lot of West Coast heat coming in the near future.
