Aiko released her Sailing Soul(s) project in 2011, a collection that featured several rappers, including Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Her collaborations with Lamar have led to a bond between Aiko and Top Dawg Entertainment.
“I’ll always work with [TDE] because not only are they extremely talented, but the movement that they represent,” Aiko said in a November 2012 interview with HipHopDX. “With Ab-Soul especially, I love the message in the music. It’s not just nonsense.”
The latest member of TDE, SZA, reached out to comment about the car accident with a tweet.
