Earlier today we showed you ScHoolboy and Kendrick Lamar’s Billboard cover, and now the cover story is available and it’s got a few gems in it. Including tidbits about Kendrick Lamar’s next LP and the possibility of a Black Hippy album in 2014…
In 2014, TDE hopes to lock and load its most ambitious slate of releases: Rashad and the label’s first nonrap signing, New Jersey-based female singer-songwriter SZA, will be coming with albums, as will original team members Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. Meanwhile, Free thinks the long-awaited debut from Black Hippy – the supergroup featuring Lamar, Q, Rock and Ab-Soul – is likely to appear in 2014; Tiffith indicates that TDE is planning to release a new Lamar album this coming September, too.
If TDE can manage to pull off these releases? Ahh man… hip hop wins.
Another tidbit from the cover story is K. Dot’s response to Macklemore’s GRAMMY text.
That text surprised me, but Macklemore is a genuine dude. However it panned out, I wish him much success. He touched people’s souls, and no one can take that away. Really, the whole Grammy moment was incredible. Not everyone gets that shot.
Definitely a lot more friendly than Drake’s “wack as fuck” comment. Right?
