Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Top Dawg shared a photo on Instagram today (above) of a marker board that lists the label’s upcoming releases, and the tantalizing lineup includes new stuff from Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad, and others.
First on the list is Schoolboy Q, who has the words “sample clearance” by his name, suggesting that an album is in its final stages. This makes sense considering that Top Dawg recently hinted that Schoolboy Q’s upcoming album would be released before the summer. Following is SZA, Rashad and Ab-Soul, whose projects are respectively listed as “4th stage creative,” “3rd stage creative,” and “mixing.” Below that are Kendrick and Jay Rock, both of whom released albums in 2015.
The board also hints at releases from two currently unknown artists, labeled as “John Doe 1” and “John Doe 2,” as well as a hopeful and highly anticipated 2017 release from Black Hippy, a supergroup comprised of TDE artists Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Kendrick and Schoolboy Q.
