(AllHipHop News) TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith tweeted last December that the label planned to release six albums in 2014. The camp has dropped four albums so far this year, but Kendrick Lamar has yet to join Isaiah Rashad, Schoolboy Q, SZA, and Ab-Soul in ’14 releases. After first suggesting K. Dot’s next LP would arrive this month, Kendrick tells Carson Daly he would like to get the good kid, m.A.A.d city follow-up out before the end of the year.
“I’m hoping to push it out before 2015,” said Kendrick. “I’m gonna say that. I’m working hard in the studio.”
The Los Angeles native released his new single “i” on Tuesday. K. Dot revealed during the interview that he had actually traveled to St. Louis to get the blessing from soul legend Ronald Isley for the Isley Brothers’ sample used on the track. The “Swimming Pools (Drank)” rapper says Isley even added ad-libs to the song.
