The news follows a week where TDE was a constant figure in the headlines.
TDE made waves with the release of its full BET Hip Hop Awards cypher. The airing of the cypher led many to believe Kendrick Lamar dissed Drake during his cypher verse. That cypher clip can be viewed below.
This week, it was also announced that TDE’s Black Hippy is scheduled to be on the cover of XXL. Ab-Soul appeared to criticize XXL and other publications following the release of the magazine cover. Soul said that publications need to refrain from printing “Kendrick Lamar and Black Hippy,” as Kendrick Lamar is a member of Black Hippy, along with ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. Soul threatened to remove himself from the group if magazines continue printing “Kendrick Lamar and Black Hippy.” XXL had “Kendrick Lamar & Black Hippy” printed on its cover.
Also this week, new TDE member Isaiah Rashad released a remix of his song “Shot You Down,” which features ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock. Q delivers a news worthy verse where he announces that his often delayed album Oxymoron is now slated to be released in January 2014.
UPDATE: TDE has released Ab-Soul’s “Dub Sac.” The selection was released today (October 24) and it was produced by Tae Beast & Dave Free. The track can be heard below.
The selection follows the release of Jay Rock’s “Numbers On The Board.”
The two selections are in sync with Top Dawg’s promise of releasing songs by Ab-Soul and Jay Rock this week. The third work Top Dawg said would be released is a music video by ScHoolboy Q.
