Top Dawg Entertainment to Release Six Albums in 2016
Top Dawg Entertainment is looking at a busy year as the collective’s CEO, Anthony Tiffith, announced that six albums are set to drop this year including projects from Schoolboy Q, SZA and Kendrick Lamar.
“S— about to get nasty real soon… I told y’all I got y’all in 2016 #TDE,” read the caption of the photo which shows how the album releases will play out.
Isaiah Rashad, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock are also slated to release an album this year. The list also hints at two new artists under the imprint to release albums. Neither of these artists have been named — but knowing TDE’s history, we’re sure they’ll easily be new favorites.
It seems everyone is in a different stage with their forthcoming albums, though. While SZA and Rashad are in the 4th and 3rd creative stage, respectively, Ab-Soul’s is on mixing. K. Dot apparently needs to get his woes on the phone and Schoolboy Q needs a sample clearance.
It seems TDE will have something special for fans in 2017, as well. So far, it’s titled “BH” and many speculate that it will be TDE’s collaboration album that’s been brewing for awhile, titled Black Hippy.
With only three months into the new year, TDE has had some major ups and downs already. While Kendrick Lamar nabbed five Grammy Awards for his sophomore album, To Pimp a Butterfly, Jay Rock was in a motorcycle accident — but is luckily recovering well.
