Kendrick Lamar & Top Dawg Cover Billboard

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Kendrick Lamar and TDE founder and president Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith cover Billboard‘s new Hip-Hop Power Players issue. For the cover story, they sat down with Datwon Thomas to talk about the father/son dynamic of their relationship, Top’s transition from the streets to the industry, “Duckworth”, the formative years of the TDE label and how Kendrick came into the fold.

How would you two define your relationship?
Tiffith: I trust his judgment, he trusts mine. Some shit I’m tripping on, he might call me and change my whole mind about it.

Lamar: You don’t get too many people like him this side of the neighborhood. A lot of motherfuckers want you to see them down just like them. Or don’t want you to come up like them. If it weren’t for him, I’d probably be sitting around with this motherfucking money and face and platform and not doing shit because I didn’t have the proper guidance to know exactly what to do and how to inspire the next kid.
