Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith (TDE CEO) revealed on Twitter today that no release date will be divulged until “a few more samples” can be successfully cleared. The TDE HNIC also promised to leak a new ScHoolboy Q song “early next week” as a token of appreciation for fans’ patience and loyalty. Peace to HHDX.

  • hova scotia

    lol some people are unoriginal using samples and complaining about getting them “cleared”

  • Shakeem Muhammed

    i hope that leak is that ‘Man of the Year’ song

  • ji_gantus

    swear more artists should do this, keep people updated

  • TruthHurtsNigga

    Yeah, what a-holes, who wouldn’t want their original music desecrated by some mediocre thug rapper.

  • mega mane

    hova scotia and truthhurts know nothing about art.

  • 2legit2quit

    ^^or hiphop lol

  • 2dope4nope

    Hmm but this here “The TDE HNIC also promised to leak a new ScHoolboy Q song “early next week” as a token of appreciation for fans’ patience and loyalty.” Ain’t mad but these samples cleared spitta and wiz did that and they were NyQuil 100% be original but the “” above I’m good.

  • the realest

    Lol @ niggaz using the word “original” as code for not saying that his music is ass.

  • Beamerz

    Calling them “AHOLES” will certainly make them more lenient

  • Sample Clearer

    cosign @Beamerz
    because i’m definitly going to clear a sample after being called an asshole lol

  • Sample Clearer


  • Hip-Hop was FORMED frm samples, like it or not. That’s the originality of that “genre”, believe it or not. You wanna have bitch fits, go head and listen to Drake take-it-in-the-ass music, smh. If it’s not one thing you bum ass broads complain abt it’s another.

  • its not like they’re not getting paid or exposure.

    samples are sure more creative than covers, which no one seems to have a problem with

  • PJ

    You gotta appreciate an artists being protective of their craft. It suck for us, the consumer, but it’s understandable.

  • hova scotia

    tde stans. art is subjective, but im sure you don’t know what that means. lol

  • the vet

    @hova scotia stan or not the use of samples is hip hop fam .. before their were lyrics over beats there was someones song and someones drum loop used to make people dance, that was the same time hip hop became hip hop. Lyrics & shit came afterwards. Like Ill said “That’s the originality of that “genre””

  • hova scotia

    i understand that and for that i apologize (out of context)…maybe i was just a little heated when the ceo called people who most likely made original production AHOLES for not clearing them in time…”the dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum”…..J DILLA was perhaps one of the greatest to flip a sample, i’m not knockin sampling at all, just the arrogance of that statement…and if you would like to claim i know nothing about hip hop..please give me a quiz lol
