Kendrick Lamar Says ScHoolboy Q's Next Album Is TDE's Current Priority

Kendrick Lamar says that ScHoolboy Q is next, followed by Ab-Soul and Jay Rock before Black Hippy albums are even entertained.

While at South By Southwest, Kendrick Lamar was asked about the current objectives of Black Hippy and the group's TDE collective. Fresh off of his own gold-certified release, good kid, m.A.A.d city, Kendrick pointed attention on his band-mate. "Right now, we're really focusing on ScHoolboy Q; his album's coming out," Lamar said of what is believed to be Q's first major label-backed album after independent success of #Setbacks and Habits & Contradictions.

Kendrick continued that the other members of the four-person collective will release solo projects, following ScHoolboy, and before Black Hippy is considered. "Ab-Soul and Jay Rock [are next]," he revealed. "[Black Hippy] is a lil' further back than expected 'cause there's just so much goin' on with the individual acts. Right now it's about ScHoolboy Q, then we'll probably work on figurin' out when we'll do Black Hippy."

As recently as last September, multiple members of the group had dismissed reports that Black Hippy would ever record an album.

    SO WILL ALL THEIR SOLO ALBUMS BE DISTRIBUTED BY INTERSCOPE???

    • Leto El

      I think Jay Rock is the only one that won't through distributed through Interscope since he's also signed to Tech N9ne's Strange Music. I could be wrong though.

    Be paid weekly and earn like a boss! Love my job, since I've been bringing in $87h I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online. All I do are easy tasks from this one cool site, Epic2.com___

    I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! HHDX, PLEASE WORK ON HIRING MORE QUALIFIED WRITERS WHO ARE INVESTED IN HIP-HOP NOT ONLY FOR A JOB BUT BECAUSE THEY LIVE IT LIKE US! YOU NEED TO STOP HIRING THESE JAKE'S AND KATHY'S AND HIRE PEPOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEIR TALKING ABOUT. JAKE SAYS "... what is BELIEVED to be Q's first major label-backed album..." BELIEVED?? WHY DON'T YOU KNOW FOR SURE JAKE? A QUICK WIKIPEDIA SEARCH WOULD'VE CONFIRMED THAT FOR YOU SINCE YOU APPARENTLY DIDN'T KNOW. THEN, JAKE SAYS "As recently as last September, multiple members of the group had dismissed reports that Black Hippy would ever record an album." THIS IS ALMOST LAUGHABLE, THOSE GUYS WERE CLEARLY FUCKING WITH YOU MEDIA TYPES SAYING THEY WOULD NEVER DO IT, EVEN SAYING IT WITH LITTLE SMIRKS IN VIDEO INTERVIEWS. IF YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW HIP-HOP, GO WRITE FOR NBCNEWS.COM OR SOMETHING. YALL ARE LOSING CREDIBILITY WITH ME BECAUSE YOU SHOW TIME AND AGAIN THAT YOU HAVE WRITERS WHO WRITE ABOUT HIP-HOP, WHEN YOU SHOULD HAVE HIP-HOP HEADS WHO HAPPEN TO WRITE FOR HHDX... BIG DIFFERENCE. IF YALL DON'T CLEAN THIS UP, I'M LEAVING AND NEVER COMING BACK. ALLHIPHOP.COM DOESN'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM. THEY KNOW THEIR SHIT OVER THERE. DON'T GET DEFENSIVE WHEN READIN THIS, JUST TAKE IT TO HEART AND ADDRESS THE ISSUE.

      Dude is right but it's already too late. Been late. Google Glass is coming, someone could just facial recognition you and know your whole life from Facebook and Twitter. But you clowns love this sh*t. HHDX gave up when the tool-bar appeared down below and interns are cheaper than paid staff.

      HotNewHipHop is another site with bullshit trolls who pose as famous people, have stupid arguments, listen to terrible music, and talk about dumb shit. HNHH is probably worse than HHDX tbh.

      It's not just this site that's going downhill, it's most of the Internet in general. Yahoo, TMZ, BBC, and countless other sources have a shitload of pointless stories written by unskilled, uneducated editors 24/7. You have brainless conformists, assholes, and other vermin saturating the databases with pure idiocy and ignorance. You have sites such as YouTube and WorldStarHipHop exploiting ignorance and savagery. People can no longer spell and write for shit, nor conduct a meaningful conversation due to their overall stunted growth, prejudice, and personal flaws. No one cares anymore. Many people are only worried about Facebook updates, Twitter feeds, inane YouTube videos, bullshit Tumblr, Reddit retardation, watching slutty transsexual porn and getting laid, drugs/weed/alcohol, and whatever the fuck else. Most people are either complete idiots, sheep, pseudo-intellectuals, or all of the above. Intelligence, consciousness, morality, accountability, and dignity are becoming more and more non-existent by day. Corporations have taken over the Internet, and laws like the SOPA will strike back again to control and monitor our lives since people don't know how to fucking act and exercise their minds independently. So let's thank the idiots and human animals for screwing our world via rectum. Most people are already ignorant tools, so it's too late to awaken them since they are set in their ways.
