Back in February, Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony Tiffith hinted that 2016 was going to be a big year for his label. He posted an Instagram photo of the TDE album release schedule, which suggested artists like Jay Rock, SZA, Ab-Soul, and Skiiiwalker would drop new projects before the year’s end; however, with less than three months until 2017, we’re still waiting for the artists’ respective albums, leading many of us to wonder, “What the hell is taking so long?”
First, the good news: On Friday, Tiffith went to Twitter to announce Lance Skiiiwalker would be the next TDE signee to release a record. His long-awaited Introverted Intuition is set to release next Tuesday. Though many were excited to hear that the Chicago rapper’s debut studio album was right around the corner, others were upset that TDE has yet to drop SZA and Ab-Soul’s projects.
Shortly after Twitter users sent their complaints, Tiffith responded with some explanations. Apparently Ab-Soul’s Do What Thou Wilt and SZA’s A aren’t even finished yet.
But fans shouldn't give up hope. Tiffith reassured everyone that there were more TDE albums to come before 2017. Let's cross our fingers this actually happens.
