Reason #1: The new signed talentTDE welcomed two new signees in 2013: Isaiah Rashad and SZA. A 22-year-old rapper from Chattanooga, Tennessee, Rashad appeared on the BET cypher alongside the Black Hippy crew where he showed he could hold his own. You can also hear his effortless, smooth bars on “Brad Jordan” and “Shot You Down,” the remix of which features Schoolboy Q and Jay Rock.
SZA, on the other hand, gives the label something different with her eccentric sound. The 23-year-old songstress out of Maplewood, New Jersey provided the backup vocals for a mash up of "Swimming Pools" and "Poetic Justice" at the 2013 American Music Awards and released two EPs: S and See.SZA.Run. Watch these two collaborate on Rashad’s “Ronnie Drake" below.
