2017 is set to be another big year for Top Dawg Entertainment, with record label boss Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith suggesting that Kendrick Lamar’s next release will be (another) “album of the year.”
Hip Hop fans have gleaned from the way K. Dot signed off on “The Heart Part 4” that the Compton rapper’s next album will drop on April 7, but Tiffith has confirmed that TDE has much more planned for the remainder of the year.
In a Twitter Q&A on Saturday (April 1), Tiffith took questions on the label’s release schedule. He revealed that SZA’s album “CRTL” is finally set to drop after a long wait, soon to be followed by a new ScHoolboy Q record.
Asked if “CTRL” is set to drop after Kendrick’s next album, Tiffith simply said “yes,” which is pretty vague, but he also clarified that SZA’s album would drop before the next ScHoolboy Q album.
Without throwing around too many details (or any at all, really) Tiffith also confirmed a new Jay Rock album for 2017, saying “yaaaaasss lol” when asked if fans could expect one.
Besides a solid guess on Kendrick’s release date, we don’t know much about TDE’s schedule for the next eight months — but going by their track record and the talent on their roster, it’ll likely be worth the wait.
