As we noted in our Oct/November issue, Top Dawg Ent. had 2013 in the cobra clutch. Despite no one in the roster dropping an album, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, SZA and Isaiah Rashad put out enough banging singles, blazed enough features, killed enough stages and caused enough of a stir in hip-hop to have a buzz that majors would kill for. Though 2013 didn’t offer any LP’s from the Cali imprint, according to label CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, 2014 is going to be a totally different story. Early this morning, Tiffith took to Twitter to announce that the label will drop six albums next year from their six person roster. “We ran 2013 without dropping 1 album,” he typed. “I wonder wuts gone happen in 2014 when I drop 6. They not ready 4 this.”
ScHoolboy Q’s forthcoming album, Oxymoron is slated to drop in February. Kendrick Lamar is currently working on the follow up to his 2012 platinum selling album, Good Kid M.A.A.D. City. Are y’all ready?
