TDE is in the holiday spirit and have decided to not only host a toy giveaway but a holiday concert as well today (Dec. 23) in Watts, CA. The label is partnering up with Nickerson Garden projects to give away toys, shoes and put on a free concert for the residents.
Members of the TDE team feel it is of utmost importance to give something back to the local communities, especially during the Christmas holiday season,” said a press release. “It’s always so greatly rewarding to see such a festive spirit in the faces of young children when they receive a gift from Santa, especially as many of them may not have received a toy at all if not for the TDE team and those who support them bringing their resources together.”
The entire TDE roster is expected to perform, which is Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad and SZA.
TDE’s CEO Top Dawg said it was only right to have this event in the community that raised him.
“Being one of those young boys raised in the Nickerson Gardens projects I felt it’s my duty to bring the show back home,” he said. “Rather than just giving gifts for the holidays, I also wanted to bring something different and unique to my community.”
