TDE’s Isaiah Rashad took to Instagram Live a few days ago and revealed Kendrick Lamar had a brand new album “damn near” done. But according to TDE’s CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, it isn’t coming anytime soon.
On Tuesday (September 4), Top Dawg released a message on Instagram letting all the excited fans know that the Kendrick album was not dropping in 2018.
“ATT: KDOT DON’T HAVE A NEW ALBUM COMING NO TIME SOON,” Top Dawg wrote. “So keep playing DAMN until the kid is inspired again.”
Though K. Dot’s album isn’t coming out in 2018, TDE’s head honcho tweeted on August 29 he has two more albums for fans this year.

According to TDE‘s Isaiah Rashad, Kendrick Lamar is damn close to finishing a new album.
During an Instagram Live session with TDE’s CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, Rashad revealed that he heard a “damn near” completed album from Kendrick. Along with that, he mentioned ScHoolboy Q’s album and SZA’s new hair color change.
“Q finna drop. SZA’s hair is green, so you know it’s going to be fire. You never know what’s going to happen.” Then he goes on to say, “Top just played me a whole Dot album, damn near.”

The label boss also recently stated that Q’s album was “90% to 95% done”, all but indicating that the Blankface LP architect is dropping soon than later.
With so many active artists on the roster, their recent signee, Reason, could also be set to release music as well.
