Earlier this week, TDE’s CEO “Top Dawg” took to his Twitter account to announce a schedule of releases from the label, which may possibly include the long-awaited and highly anticipated Black Hippy project in 2017.
Well to show he’s not playing games he delivers a new project from K. Dot, titled untitled unmastered.
Got Juice? Hoodies and T-Shirts available now on egomerch.com.
To honor his past while celebrating his future, the TDE rapper took several Compton high schoolers from his alma matter on a field trip they’ll never forget, The Grammys. They got to watch their idol perform and accept multiple awards. Check out their day with K. Dot unfold above.
So this is random just like anything Jay Electronica does, but during a Periscope session with fans Jay took a few shots at a couple Hip Hop heavyweights.
When asked to “put some Kendrick on,” Jay responded “Nah, fuck that. I like the one Kendrick song with Gunplay, “Cartoons & Cereal” But other than that, we don’t know what the nigga talkin about.” Oh? Then someone allegedly says “Fuck Kendrick” to which Jay replys “Nah, don’t say fuck Kendrick. You can’t say fuck Kendrick. That’s still our brother.”
Jay had this to say about 50:
“50 Cent is a good rapper. Right now he got potential to be a rapper. But he’s on some sucker shit. And we will slap 50 Cents’ fucking eyeballs loose out his scalp.”
Now back to K. Dot:
“Look. Kendrick himself would tell you he couldn’t body me. Kendrick is my son. Kendrick is my baby. Kendrick wishes he could be me.”
This could get interesting but really what’s the point of K. Dot or 50 saying anything back? Gotta drop an album first Jay. Fuck the bullshit, get in the booth and back your claims with a solid LP, g.
With the 58th GRAMMY Awards coming up in 2 weeks and being nominated for a near record 11 gold trophies, K. Dot covers the latest issue of Billboard Magazine.
Read a few excerpts from his interview below and check out the full cover story here.
The difference between GKMC & TPAB
“Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is great work, but it’s not my best work. To Pimp a Butterfly is great. I’m talking about the connection the record made. Good Kid, M.A.A.D City made a connection. But To Pimp a Butterfly made a bigger connection.”
On his potential new album
“As far as content, what I want to get across, I have an idea,” he says. “But even that’s still premature. Once I get back in that studio, things evolve into other things.”
Soooo remember when 500,000 unit sales equaled Gold, at 1 million sales you were declared Platinum and 10 million sales meant yo shit was Diamond? Welp, not anymore the game has changed. The RIAA will now include digital streaming in gold and platinum certification.
Meaning the RIAA now recognizes 1,500 on-demand audio and/or video song streams as 10 equivalent track sales, which in turn counts for one equivalent album sale.
That’s good news for some of your favorite artists. 17 more albums, notably Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly and Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise, which are now both platinum with streams. Congrats.
