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.
After dropping a snippet of the Kendrick Lamar assisted cut “No More Parties In L.A.”, Kanye now drops off the finished version. Enjoy the track down below while we patiently wait for SWISH to arrive February 11th.

So it seems G.O.O.D. Fridays is officially back as Kanye releases some more new music, a week after releasing “Facts.” The series of releases will be preparing us for the upcoming release of Ye’s SWISH album, much like he did leading up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010. Take a listen to “Real Friends” featuring Ty Dolla $ign down below along with a snippet of the Kendrick Lamar assisted cut “No More Parties In LA”, which was recorded back in the MBDTF days.
Just before the year ends Kendrick Lamar decides to drop off a double video for “U” and “For Sale?” that is called “God Is Gangsta.” Get a look at the cinematic video for the To Pimp A Butterfly cuts down below.
Kendrick Lamar got 11 GRAMMY nominations this year and in his latest video the TDE rep acknowledges what it took to get to this point, “Hard Work.” Listen after the jump.
After hearing J. Cole take on one of his album cuts, Kendrick Lamar now remixes one of Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive standouts. Kendrick decides to give us his take over the “A Tale Of 2 Citiez” instrumental. Take a listen after the jump and let’s keep our fingers crossed their joint project is on the way.
J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar have had hip hop fans anticipating their collaborative project and what wondering when or if it was ever going to see the light of day. Well it seems today we get little confirmation that it may be on the way sooner than later.
Today the two decide to drop off remixes of each others tracks. First up is Cole taking on K. Dot’s “Alright” single. Take a listen down below.
Ty Dolla $ign’s album is arriving next week and today we get to hear the final version of “L.A.” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Brandy and James Fauntleroy. The actual CDQ will be available later tonight but for now enjoy the Big Boy’s Neighborhood premiere after the jump. Pre-order Free TC.
Although a lot of his music from To Pimp A Butterfly is more on the serious side, Kendrick has found ways to keep it humorous as he does it again with the latest visual for “These Walls.” Watch the short movie after the jump.
