The Compton born rapper took to the TDE Instagram to discuss the rumours; releasing a video of himself talking over a video of a Blues Clues plushy. Addressing TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, Lamar said, “Top, you gotta stop them from smutting my name, man,they been smutting my name all year, man. You ain’t said nothing. Enough is enough, man. Got ’em saying I done shook the label and all that. They must don’t know about that, that pickle juice that’s under your red cap, man. About that sweat, the sweat that’s holding that red cap together, reason why it don’t fall off your head, man. That lubricant. You need to tell them that the reason why that cap don’t fall off yo’ head, man. So why would I fall off? Watching cartoons, man.”
It has been reported that the rumour started on the Instagram account antixbound. They claimed that Kendrick had left TDE so he could put more of his energy and effort into pgLang – Lamar’s own creative services company.
Kendricks response confirms that he is still part of TDE and his next album will most likely be released on their label. That said, no release date has been set for his next album, although he has recently been seen filming a music video. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter, to never miss a new music release.
