K.Dot and Q share the cover of the new issue of Billboard. The cover story will look at TDE, the “Hip-Hop hit factory that has Kendrick Lamar, a soon to be No. 1 album from ScHoolBoy Q and the attention of Jimmy Iovine”.
UPDATE: Billboard just posted the article and it includes some interesting tidbits, including a Black Hippy album and a potential/scheduled Kendrick Lamar release date.
In 2014, TDE hopes to lock and load its most ambitious slate of releases: Rashad and the label’s first nonrap signing, New Jersey-based female singer-songwriter SZA, will be coming with albums, as will original team members Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. Meanwhile, Free thinks the long-awaited debut from Black Hippy – the supergroup featuring Lamar, Q, Rock and Ab-Soul – is likely to appear in 2014; Tiffith indicates that TDE is planning to release a new Lamar album this coming September, too.
