Top Dawg Entertainment has some of today’s greatest rappers on its roster, and fans are desperate to get new music from them. TDE CEO Anthony Tiffith released a photo over night detailing the progress of each artist’s album.
It looks like in 2016, fans can look forward to new music from ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Isaiah Rashad, and Ab-Soul. There are also two new artist on the list only referred to as John Doe 1 and 2, but if their current roster has set any sort of standard, these new artist should be highly regarded.
Also on the list is Grammy Award winning artist Kendrick Lamar, who’s progress in unclear with only “??? (GET TOP ON THE PHONE)” beside his name. I am not sure what this means or who “Top” is, but hopefully it’s Top Dawg himself and he just has to give the all clear for the album to be released and in early 2016 we will get new K Dot.
Unfortunately, Jay Rock is still in hospital after a motorcycle accident last month, but is said to be on the way to recovery. Once he gets there, I hope he is back to making music, and can join this list too.
Lastly, on list is “2017 possible release” by artist BH. BH can only possibly mean Black Hippy, a collaborative of TDE artists, Kendrick, Schoolboy, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock. Fans have been praying for an album release from Black Hippy since the group formed in 2009, but it seems unfortunately we will still have to pray, as the album status is literally “praying.” At least it looks like it is in the works.
Check out the Instagram post below for the progress of each artist and keep Black Hippy and Jay Rock in your prayers.
