Earlier Today I Tweeted “Kendrick Lamar is on Interscope? I didn’t know that,” after seeing a video from Kendrick’s Section .80 played on MTV Jams with Interscope listed as his label on the bottom left hand of my TV screen. Just a couple hours later, Fader has reported that Kendrick Lamar and his group Black Hippy have inked a deal with Interscope/Aftermath and his upcoming yet to be titled album will be released jointly by TDE, Aftermath and Interscope. Congrats, Kendrick!
Top Dawg Entertainment’s founder and namesake, Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith says that TDE has “just closed” a joint venture deal with Interscope Records and Aftermath Entertainment, the Interscope imprint founded by Dr. Dre.
Kendrick Lamar’s forthcoming, still-untitled album will be released jointly by Top Dawg, Aftermath and Interscope. Future releases by Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock will be released jointly by Top Dawg and Interscope. More details on the deal, from Tiffith, are coming soon.
