TDE was on track to deliver six projects within the year just as label CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith promised, but in the final home stretch and only less than two months to go, the group seemed to have fallen short of releasing Ab-Soul and SZA’s projects. Ab-Soul recently took to Twitter on Nov. 13, to give fans and his team an update about his LP.
Top Dawg originally took to his social platform on Nov. 10, to relieve himself of some of the blame regarding Ab-Soul’s album delay. “@abdashsoul & @MixedByAli holding up his album. I’m done takin the blame… they need 2 get da mixes right.. that’s the hold up. Get at them,” he tweeted. Following his comments, the “U.O.E.N.O.” artist responded, saying he was “Headed to da stu wit @MixedByAli & @MoosaTDE right now…#DWTW.” Just heading to the studio probably wasn’t the update that fans wanted, but it’s good to know the album is a work in progress.
That’s at least more than can be said for SZA, who took to Twitter in Oct. 2016, to suggest that she was not only not putting out an album, but she was possibly “quitting” the music biz. The verdict is still out on that though. So that leaves, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad, and Lance Skiiwalker, who have all put out albums this year. Hopefully Ab-Soul will follow suit soon.
