Earlier this year, TDE's CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith shared the label's master plan for 2016. So far, we've received albums from Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q, a new song and video from Isaiah Rashad and confirmation that his album is almost complete, as well as material from TDE's latest signee, Lance Skiiiwalker. Today, Tiffith confirms a few more of those plans, crossing off additional items from that list of 2016 TDE releases.
According to Tiffith, projects from Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, and SZA will be arriving soon. Taking to Instagram to share the news, Tiffith posted an Instagram video of Jay Rock in the studio last night and confirms that the album is "80% done." Earlier today, the CEO posted an image of a folder on his desktop labeled "SOULO final mixes in." Now that Ab-Soul's fourth yet-to-be-titled album is in its final stages, TDE's CEO promises that a release date for the project is "coming soon." Tiffith also hints that SZA's first studio album A will soon be released as well.
Three months ago, Tiffith shared a clip of a TDE in-house listening session with Ab-Soul again on Instagram, saying that the new material is "sounding Krazy [sic]." Ab-Soul confirmed via Twitter that he had confirmed his tracklist back in June and used the hashtag #DWTW, which people are speculating to be the title of his new album.
Take a look at TDE CEO's Instagram posts below.
