Top Dawg Entertainment continues its strong 2018 streak.
On Thursday night, West Coast rapper Reason came through with There You Have It, his first full-length release under the TDE banner. The 12-track album was executive produced by Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, and includes guest appearances by Xian Bell, Space 600, and D Beezey. The album was preceded by the singles “The Soul,” “Better Dayz,” and “Summer Up.”
There You Have It is now available on all major streaming services, including Apple Music, iTunes, and Spotify.
Fans can also catch Reason on Jay Rock’s The Big Redemption Tour, which kicked off earlier this month.
Reason’s TDE deal was announced in early August, months after he appeared on the hit Black Panther soundtrack. In a recent interview with DJ Booth, the rapper explained why he decided to sign with TDE rather than another label.
“Every meeting, all they talked about was my social media, my YouTube numbers, my SoundCloud numbers, and then we would play music for six minutes and that would be it,” he said. “Top did not bring those things up once, and we played music for an hour and a half, and we see where TDE is. Because at the end of the day, you can do whatever you want, you can put glitter on it, try to make it shine, they gotta play the music. If the music isn’t there, it’s like, what else are you left with?”
