TDE Co-Prez Punch Recaps The Label’s 2016, Says Jay Rock’s Next Album Is Almost Done


(AllHipHop News) Top Dawg Entertainment had another huge year in 2016.

It began with Kendrick Lamar winning five Grammy awards in February.

Then TDE head Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith announced the label was on pace to release projects from Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, SZA, Isaiah Rashad, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock.

Four of those artists did drop new bodies of work.

The world also got something from the newest Top Dawg Entertainment signee Lance Skiiiwalker and a mysterious second neophyte.

But SZA and Jay Rock were not among the TDE acts to let loose a project in ’16.

Top Dawg Co-President Terrence “Punch” Henderson took to Twitter to reflect on his company’s last twelve months.

He also gave an update on the follow-ups to SZA’s 2014 EP Z and Rock’s 2015 album 90059.

SZA quit and blamed me lol (kidding). Watch when her album comes. I’m extremely proud of her growth and this record. Amazing,” wrote Punch. “Jay Rock got in a dirt bike accident being a true project baby lol. I joke but it could’ve been bad. He’s great and his album is almost done.”

In addition, Punch hinted he may be ready to release some of his own music in the near future.

“Oh. I’ve been recording too. Lol. No for real this time,” added the music executive/rapper.

This year Punch appeared on Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered and Ab-Soul’s Do What Thou Wilt.
