Kendrick Lamar has finally broke his silence with a out the blue post via his twitter which took fans to his website to give an update on his newest album thats set to release soon. Kendrick let it be known that he was finally leaving the TDE label he started with 10 plus years ago revealing that “Nu Thoughts” will be his last on TDE.
Kendrick wrote “As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years,” he continued. “The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling. There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all. See you soon enough.”
Of course TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith responded to Kendricks announcement. Top Dawg said
“With this being Dot’s last album on TDE, this is more of a VICTORY LAP, a celebration,” the statement read. “I know he will be successful in whatever it is he decides to do and will have our FULL support. As for Top Dawg Entertainment, we will continue to grow, develop and give artists the platform to expand into whatever way they choose.”
