E-40 and Rihanna to Perform at TDE Christmas Concert and Toy Drive
As Christmas nears, Top Dawg Entertainment is getting into the holiday spirit by holding its annual Christmas concert and toy drive.
Similar to every year, the even is expected to feature a number of big names. While Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and the rest of the TDE crew are expected to make appearances, E-40 and Rihanna will also be on hand to perform.
TDE founder Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith shared the news on Twitter, tweeting,"🎶 Schest nuts roash-ting on a open fyah... Jack Frossh nipping from your nosehhhh 🎶 @rihanna @E40 #TDEXMAS17." The event takes place today (Dec. 21) at Nickerson Gardens in Los Angeles with gates opening at 12 p.m. Admission to the event is free if you bring an unwrapped gift for the toy drive.
The label has previously discussed the event in the past, telling MTV News in 2015, "In cities like Watts, Compton and South Central, a lot of these kids don’t get to leave their neighborhoods."
TDE President Dave Free added, "They don’t get to go to these shows. They don’t have the resources, money or opportunities to be in these environments, to be submerged in music, culture and different elements. To me, that’s an important thing. That’s what I see in all these families, in their faces, that excitement."
