Top Dawg Entertainment only gave us two albums last year from their roster and one of them, To Pimp A Butterfly, was arguably the best album of the year in hip-hop and maybe music in general. It seems TDE wants to do things bigger this year as we get to see a photo posted by Top Dawg himself that shows a tentative release schedule and maps out the label’s plans for the remainder of the year. See it below.

Ab-Soul’s These Days tour passed through Vancouver and during the stop of course the Black Lip Pastor had to meet up with Nardwuar. It’s been awhile since we have seen a Nardwuar interview but nothing has changed as he brings plenty of gifts for Soulo.
