Label stars Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, Isaiah Rashad, SZA, and Lance Skiiiwalker all came out to Nickerson Gardens Projects in Watts to put on a performance for the community. Kendrick delivered a quick freestyle over Jay Rock's "Vice City" before the two performed "Money Trees" together. Even some of TDE's close friends like ASAP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, and O.T Genasis showed up to hit the stage.
The event also doubled as a toy drive to give back to those in need, making the day an even bigger success for all of TDE.
TDE's CEO, Anthony Tiffith, celebrated the homecoming event with a personal message about the label’s annual holiday concert. "Lil bro and I turnt nothin in to sumthin and today is the day we bring it back to the hood where it all started. There is no better feeling than being able to give back to where u come from," he wrote. "I hope my success inspire and motivate y'all to work hard at wut ever ur trying to achieve in life. Hard work and dedication always pays off."
Lil bro and I turnt nothin in to sumthin and today is the day we bring it back to the hood where it all started. There is no better feeling than being able to give back to where u come from. It was dope watching the Lil homies jump on stage and rock the mic. Other homies holding down security with no incidents... every year at this time I feel like we come together as a family and I feel the love minus A few niggas I 😂😂😂 at that got jealousy n hate in their eyes.. overall Today was a great day.. I hope my success inspire and motivate y'all to work hard at wut ever ur trying to achieve in life. Hard work and dedication always pays off.. Remember nobody is going to give u shit or owes you shit but you. You have to work hard for wut you want.. I'm a project baby just like all of y'all and Nothin was given to me, I worked my ass off and stayed dedicated to my hustle.. so if u feel ur owed something don't fuck with me...those who want to work hard 4 it and can bring something to the table I'm with yall... I run this music shit the same way I use 2 run my spots in hood...nobody gets shit for free. You got 2 earn it..with that being said...my next move is our studio and y'all niggas better bring me some heat... let's get it .... at the end of the day I love da homies , homegirls and the hood. Thank y'all for 2day I'm out Top "Dude" Dawg #TDE
