We Need The TDE Vs Dreamville Competition In 2019

Hip-hop’s tradition has historically been predicated on 4 key components: MC’ing, DJ’ing, Beatboxing and Graffiti Writing. With the latter two extra by-products the renegade motion that originated within the minds the Bronx’s expressive youths quite than being intently aligned with its present guise, it begs the query as as to if there are persisting attributes which might be extra befitting the worldwide phenomenon that it has since turn out to be. First delivered to the fore by the warring factions Boogie Down Productions and The Juice Crew as they sought to claim their respective borough’s pre-eminence over the rap recreation, one defining attribute life on the creative frontlines has been the irrepressible urge to check your prowess in opposition to your fellow inventive minds. Whether it manifests in shows wordplay, a perceived slight or trespass on a fellow MC’s skillset, or within the morbid form violence, the will to check your mettle in opposition to these perched on the style’s highest totem is dyed within the wool hip-hop like little else.

A scholar the artform’s doctrines in each method, the observe pitting the deserves your materials in opposition to your contemporaries has been tantalizingly reignited by Atlanta’s J.I.D. Scarcely various days after he fered a late contender for album the yr with earth-rattling sophomore mission Dicaprio 2, the J. Cole protégé didn’t mince his phrases on his aspirations for the Dreamville collective within the years to come back. Boasting artists similar to Bas, EarthGang, Ari Lennox and Lute amongst others, an interview with Complex noticed the “East Atlanta Playboy” throw the gauntlet all the way down to their Los Angeles based mostly counterparts in Top Dawg Entertainment: “We competing with TDE. That’s what must be identified. Dreamville, we gotta step this shit the fu*okay up. Cause them n***as is fireplace! I do not even know any entities that I fu*okay with, however I fu*okay with TDE.” Derived from admiration quite than animosity, this call-to-arms hasn’t gone unnoticed by the label that comes full with one the best rosters ever to assemble beneath one incorrigibly creative banner.

J.I.D – by HNHH

A scorching prospect in his personal proper with an undeterred self-belief akin to J.I.D’s, TDE signee Reason responded to his light-hearted provocation after the 2 met at Rolling Loud. Comically captioned as “bumped into this random man at @RollingLoud he stated he was half some dream group or one thing idk. Really cool man tho,” the picture the 2 conversing intently despatched a transparent message that the respect he’d proven to the non secular dwelling Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and extra was reciprocated, however that his problem had been duly famous.

At a time the place many hip-hop heads have been left disenchanted by uniformed passibility appearing because the low barometer for important or business success, the information that two factions revered for thought-provoking output gained’t be banding collectively, however will as an alternative draw the battle strains, has left many clamouring for dream hook-ups quite than hotly-contested square-fs. Despite the truth that any ardent connoisseur theartform would salivate over the announcement the long-gestating collaboration between Kendrick and Cole, to decry these two labels for respectively wanting supremacy is to negate the aggressive spirit that’s an important side hip-hop’s lifeblood. There is a false impression that beef and rivalry are indivisible from each other, however this might not be farther from the reality. Where one is shaped on real; or within the case some right now’s artists, manufactured, hostility, the opposite is extra in keeping with a sporting contest with the clear aim crowning a victor and placing as a lot a deficit between you and your opponents within the course of.

On J.I.D’s half, there was possible no apprehension in sending this jol shot throughout the bow to TDE, contemplating its de-facto chief, Kendrick Lamar, as soon as lobbed an incendiary machine into what he noticed as a wilting and detrimentally harmonious eco-system with “Control.” Alongside stealing all the headlines from a monitor that featured verses from Big Sean and the elusive Jay Electronica, this 2013 fering noticed Ok-Dot proclaim that “I’m normally homeboys with the identical n***s I’m rhyming with, however that is hip-hop and these ‘n***s’ ought to know what time it’s” earlier than offering a laundry checklist MCs that he wished to bloodbath on wax. Cole was among the many stock rappers that Kendrick needed to displace, a frontrunner that might bly protest Ok. Dot’s standing as hip-hop’s kingpin. This pleasant rivalry has merely been inherited by their respective crews.

On the topic the rosters at their disposal, there has by no means been a time the place they’ve been on such an equal footing on the subject of vitality, creative distinction and relevance as they’re at present. Bolstered by not solely Dicaprio 2, however the globe-trotting sound Bas’ breakout mission Milky Way, in addition to the clear anticipation for EarthGang, Cole’s declare that “Dreamville stacked like the soldiers” appears apt (lest we neglect, Lute, Cozz and Ari Lennox are solely warming up). Coupled with the label mastermind’s engulfing opus KOD, it could possibly be argued that Dreamville goes into 2019 a step forward their West Coast rivals. That’s to not say that TDE has laid dormant in 2018 nonetheless, fering stellar initiatives from SiR, Reason’s debut There You Have It and most notably, Jay Rock’s Redemption. Now that the seeds warfare between the 2 have been sown within the listeners’ thoughts, success upcoming initiatives from each camps might be made all of the extra pivotal resulting from its results on our inner scoreboards.

Jay Rock – by HNHH

While the standing  Kendrick’s new mission stays unclear, the discharge slates each imprints appear greater than succesful besieging the business in 2019. On Dreamville’s beginning line-up, there’s Cole’s The Fall Off, EarthGang’s full-length Mirrorland, a brand new fering from Ari Lennox, whispers a ‘conceptual mission’ between J.I.D & No ID and that’s with out even broaching whether or not the t-teased Revenge Of The Dreamers three will lastly emerge. Meanwhile in Cali, the ever-imposing Schoolboy Q, who purposefully delayed his new file after Mac Miller’s premature passing, might be returning to the fray, possible alongside the enigmatic Ab-Soul, Tennessee import Isiah Rashad and the important darling that’s SZA. With each Dreamville president Imbrahim Hamad and TDE’s patriarch Anthony ‘Top’ Tiffith’ proclaiming 2019 to be a large yr, the looming specter   competitors respiration down their necks ought to lead each artist to hone their new initiatives till they border on perfection.

Harbouring all of the makings essentially the most contentious tug–war over the market share because the days Bad Boy and Death Row, the essential distinction is that every bout might be determined by achieved music quite than bullet wounds, which makes it not a combat to be worrisome over, however one to bask within the sheer brilliance .

At time when numerous stars are criticized for complacently using waves or counting on a well-trodden sound, the problem that J.I.D issued is not going to solely push the events concerned, however encourage hip-hop at giant to succeed in a better plateau. In that sense, this declaration warfare from J.I.D shouldn’t be a trigger for alarm however a time to rejoice, in what has all of the makings a compelling and historic occasion for tradition as we all know it.

SZA Feels Grateful Amid TDE Toy Drive Where Fan Jumps Fence For Autograph

Top Dawg Entertainment’s annual Christmas particular came about yesterday and among the many nice performers akin to Jay Rock, Reason, Rich the Kid, Kendrick Lamar, in addition to shock visitor Travis Scott, was none apart from miss “Love Galore,” SZA. Travis got here via to carry out their collaborative observe and as soon as the occasion was over, SZA kicked it with some adoring followers who had her feeling very grateful.

The video beneath exhibits the 28-year-old singer signing the shirt a younger and seemingly very keen fan who jumped a gate simply to see SZA in particular person. He will need to have been so star struck as a result of his solely phrases have been “thanks” after SZA signed her identify with a everlasting marker. 

“Lol this lil boy hopped the gate to get this and didnt even say three phrases! Such critical power lol. Kids are a blessing. immediately Is a blessing. to be on a TDE is a BLESSING. Thank you to everybody for bringing toys and vibing out!” she captioned the video.

SZA was rightfully gifted the “Rule Breaker” award on the Billboard’s Women In Music convention earlier this month the place she thanked TDE’s CEO Terrence “Punch” Henderson for “having a coronary heart gold” when she started her profession. 

“I am simply so grateful for everybody having persistence with me,” she advised the gang.

21 Savage's "I Am > I Was:" The 5 Best Features

Tis the season the place males are made, boys are born, and ladies are netted within the kind silk reserved for dignitaries. The “featured artists” that seem on 21 Savage’s  I Am > I Was are as large league as they arrive, give or take a number of noticeable absentees.

For  I Am > I Was, 21 Savage rolled out a plan, and the label complied, protecting all of the bills related to the illustrious visitor listing. The run-through you’re about to learn might sound a bit of spellbinding at first, however hear me out. This is the unficial “ficial” listing to trump all different lists projecting probably the most spectacular collaborative moments on I Am > I Was, beginning with the plain alternative, Mr. J. Cole.


Nobody cared to ask Yung Miami what she thought all these marriage proposals. That’s why she let the ball slip proper out her hand, letting it fall proper into the palms 21 Savage. “a&t” is a gender-related epithet, which one. In view that, “ass and titties” is at all times pointed within the course the male gaze. But 21 discovered a workaround to the problem by together with a feminine voice, as a result of when the enjoying area evens out, all people and their uncle’s canine likes speaking about personal components in giddy vogue.

Yung Miami’s message is obvious: she does not thoughts indulging your fantasy, however the second anyone together with 21 Savage, loses sight the endgame, the bubble goes pop, and we’re again to sq. one. By all accounts “Free JT” is a trigger, as a lot because it considerations the evolving City Girls group dynamic, however by God, Yung Miami’s solo exploration did her some good, particularly if you add “a&t” to the operating tab.


As humorous because it appears to be like on paper, Childish Gambino is definitely a gel-fit subsequent to 21 Savage on “monster.” If in any respect conceivable, Glover might have inadvertently fired f his manifesto in a semiconscious spell, illustrated by way of his efforts to attach with the typical American. On “monster,” he finds one more vessel to string the message alongside.

On the flip aspect, Gambino may be pressured right into a binding scenario prior to later. “Coming from the dust” might lose its resonance as a tradeable expression as he continues to change between mediums. Childish Gambino is tactfully enjoying a high-risk sport, the place the expectations he locations on himself stick with him regardless his place. But for now, “monster” maintain his the recent streak alive, at an impossibly excessive charge pace, particularly when you think about the constraints he was working with: another person’s imaginative and prescient. 


Project Pat wasn’t the one visitor performer to shine on the Ice Cube-inspired “good day.” A famous technician like ScHoolBoy needed to be egregiously unhealthy to overlook out on the shortlist. His intro verse strikes me as the right illustration “dissonance” profitable out in shut encounters. When completely different types collide, it forces a bizarre middle-ground – which is precisely what occurred when 21 & ScHoolboy shared the identical platform for the pre-chorus, giving option to a scathing verse the place the TDE rapper warned in opposition to the hasty use “Twitter Fingers.”

Project Pat’s verse might have been extra memorable within the broader context the entire venture, however ScHoolboy’s contributions to “good day” are equal to a significant organ operating issues obsequiously. 21 Savage was smart to let ScHoolboy assume management when and the place his contact was wanted.


Don’t mistake this for Project Pat-inspired heritage second. His work charge hasn’t diminished over time, and fairly actually, the breakup Three 6 Mafia most likely did him extra good than unhealthy – corresponding to a dissected specimen that’s solely discernible beneath the best gentle. Project Pat’s capability to make idiomatic language out nothing is what units him aside amongst the opposite A-List friends.

After years campaigning with the easiest within the area, Project Pat holds the key to creating an enduring impression. As a lyricist, precision and language are inseparable. Today they name it “the lingo” – the faster you latch onto it the higher. Project Pat is not a novelty choose for the sake inclusivity, however quite a well-earned effort. Why accept a Horrorcore copy when the unmitigated model is ripe for the taking?

1. J. COLE

J. Cole closing stanza on “quite a bit,” is by far probably the most publicized function on day one, thanks partially to his dealing with “trending points” in 32-bars or much less. His message goodwill in the direction of Markelle Fultz pushed the embattled NBA sophomore into “trending territory,” with none interference. Just earlier than bearing on the Fultz drama, he motioned to Tekashi 6ix9ine in the same vein. As you may guess, Cole’s best choice on “quite a bit” was to tread evenly in fewer phrases, so the nuances  his message might develop on their very own. J. Cole is already an higher echelon lyricist by nearly each stretch the creativeness, however on “quite a bit” he was lastly in a position to grasp the final lacking piece in his repertoire: the artwork “much less is extra.”

With that beneath his belt, J. Cole was in a position to convey a brand new sense finality for Tekashi, Fultz, and most significantly, for his personal self-regard. His insistence on utilizing troubled figures as fashions “cognitive remedy” helps to disguise his motives. What are these motives, you may ask? The reality is tough to swallow as a result of his motives are usually not an imposition. Together, 21 and J. Cole create a perfect second suspension inside the opening measure the album.

Kendrick Lamar & Travis Scott Perform At TDE's fifth Annual Holiday Toy Drive

Watts was lit on Wednesday evening. Kendrick Lamar, Top Dawg, and the TDE crew got here collectively for his or her fifth annual toy drive, they usually introduced Travis Scott alongside for the trip.

Reason Spits Crazy Bars Over TDE Bangers In New Freestyle

Stepping to the mic, Reason wastes little time in establishing his presence. Kicking issues f with a reimagined variation Kendrick Lamar’s personal rhyme scheme, Reason takes to “Element” with the arrogance a real wordsmith. “Street good like I am rolling with some students,” he raps, within the opening stanzas, “n***as folding, cash piling, bread older than nostalgia.” From that time on, intelligent bars and punchlines arrive on a nonstop foundation, as Reason delivers an onslaught over his labelmate’s instrumental. 

“It’s getting scary, simply see what the West cravin’,” spits Reason, sliding by means of with a Wes Craven reference for the slowpokes. He would not cease there. “Words electrical I got here with an unwell movement, not sick an unwell movement, however electrical, an eel movement,” he raps, his supply on level to the fullest. It would not finish there, because the Leakers queue up Jay Rock’s “Parental Advisory” for him to physique. And relaxation assured, he does precisely that.

In case you missed Reason’s current album There You Have It, you should definitely peep that proper right here. Though it is technically his debut as a TDE signee, the album itself was recorded and launched previous to the deal, making it technically a reissued drop. Still, it is clear that Reason is gearing as much as make an enormous splash on the sport, and we will solely hope his new challenge arrives before later. Peep the bars, and watch one essentially the most thrilling new lyricists at work. 

Kendrick Lamar Says He Isn't Working On A New Album

Kendrick Lamar could not have promised us an upcoming album however in our hearts, we have been nonetheless hoping that one was on the best way. The TDE rapper hardly ever goes public with any info pertaining to his music or private life. In reality, he is one probably the most secretive artists immediately. The Pulitzer Prize winner has been rumored to be engaged on a brand new challenge for just a few weeks, which TDE members have shut down. Now, Kendrick has dispelled the rumors himself in a uncommon interview with the L.A. Times. 

Isaiah Rashad had us all buzzing in September when he stated he had heard a whole Kendrick album earlier than stepping again from the claims. During a current discuss with the L.A. Times, Kenny was requested about any upcoming work he’ll be placing out however he made certain to not get anyone’s hopes up. The piece reads, “He claims he hasn’t been engaged on a brand new album, however says that he’s continually working.” Directly after the interview, he was headed to the studio. While there might not be any concrete concepts for a full-length challenge, it is a good signal that he is nonetheless engaged on new vibes.

Hopefully, we see a brand new physique work, or at the least an announcement, in 2019. We’re at all times wanting ahead to some new Kendrick.

The phase kicks f with a fellow west-coaster, Snoop Dogg.
