Top Dawg Entertainment, home of Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SZA and Isaiah Rashad, held a fan appreciation party yesterday (January 26) in honor of Lamar's several Grammy nominations. Although Lamar did not take home a Grammy, the TDE fan appreciation event allowed the Compton, California emcee to speak to his supporters and showcase his labelmates' work.
SZA kicked things off at the event, followed by Isaiah Rashad, who is slated to release Cilvia Demo January 28. The newest members of the TDE collective were followed by a TDE veteran, Jay Rock. Ab-Soul came soon after with an assistance from SZA who joined Soul Brother #2 for a performance. ScHoolboy Q, whose Oxymoron album is slated to land in stores February 25, hit the stage after Soulo.
Kendrick Lamar closed the show with a set that featured Wale and a few fans joining him on stage. At one point, TDE's Twitter account said Lamar was battling a fan.
