TDE Teases 2016 Release Schedule
There has been a lot of talk surrounding the Top Dawg Entertainment camp and their release schedule for 2016. TDE founder and CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith decided to add a little fuel to that fire with an Instagram post teasing all the projects the label currently has in the works.
"Shit about to get nasty real soon," Tiffith wrote. "I told y'all I got y'all in 2016."
The photo shows a whiteboard with a layout of the current stage each artist's project is in as of today (Feb. 29). Schoolboy Q's album is in the midst of sample clearance while Ab-Soul's is being mixed. SZA's LP is listed as being in the fourth stage creative. Isaiah Rashad is in a similar state as his project is labeled as being in the third stage creative.
Kendrick Lamar is even listed under the 2016 release schedule, but apparently Tiffith needs to speak with his label's star. Jay Rock is marked down as being in the ER following his motorcycle accident that occurred a few weeks ago.
That's not all of the teasers that Tiffith offered up though. While the whiteboard does not reveal their names, it appears that Top Dawg Entertainment has signed two new artists. One is even listed as being in second stage creative. The other is marked down as to be determined.
The most exciting hint for fans may very well be that a Black Hippy album could be released in 2017. Tiffith has "praying" written down next to this one though, so there is clearly nothing concrete when it comes to a much anticipated album from the Black Hippy supergroup.
