Here’s a Look at TDE’s 2016 Release Schedule


There’s no doubting Top Dawg Entertainment’s impact over the years. They’ve transitioned Kendrick Lamar into a household name, pushed Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, and ScHoolboy Q, introduced the world to Isaiah Rashad and SZA, and continue to take a stance on industry politics. The latest news to surface from the label is information about a number of upcoming releases.

TDE’s CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith shared a photo showing a list of all the albums that will come from the label’s roster in the coming months. Word has been circulating about two new SZA projects for months now. In addition to her own work, she paired with Rihanna for ANTI‘s “Consideration.” Another album we’ve heard about is Isaiah’s upcoming effort. A few weeks ago, Top Dawg mentioned that the LP was “almost ready,” and soon released “Smile.”

Surprisingly, the teased schedule includes Kendrick Lamar. The Compton emcee is fresh off of an epic performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards. He took home five awards that night including best rap song for “Alright” and best rap album for his critically acclaimed LP To Pimp a Butterfly.

Fans can possibly look forward to a Black Hippy project at some point as well as two new artists. Take a look at the schedule in its entirety below.
