TDE Is The Right Fit For SZA

Back in in August 2013, Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), a the powerhouse record label that is home to Black Hippy’s Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock, signed SZA to be apart of the roster. She sat down with MTV to discuss her signing to TDE. SZA talks about why TDE was the right fit:

“The thing that made it the right fit for me with TDE was definitely more of a personal, emotional decision, knowing [Top Dawg Ent. President] Punch, for like two years prior, of like non music-related, like no pressure, or running into them beforehand, just in the streets. They’ve always been kind to me. They’ve never been Hollywood, or funny. I don’t know. It’s really just the talent level. They aren’t the kind of label that will give you a bottle of champagne and a car when you sign, but they’ll give you all the studio time you could ever ask for and every producer you could ever dream of and all the support you could ever want and that’s real.”

She would also discuss being the first female member of TDE and how she celebrated after the signing. You can watch the interview above.
