Crew Love: TDE

Crew Love: TDE

Get familiar with TDE's roster in this week's edition of Crew Love

Top Dawg Entertainment, or TDE for short, is one of the biggest success stories in hip-hop in recent memory. Founded in 2004 by Anthony Tiffith, the label didn't release its first mixtape until 2008, and its first album until 2010, but since then, has reached commercial and critical heights the likes of which most other independent labels couldn't imagine.

With a relatively small roster, comprised of core Black Hippy members Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q, as well as recent signees Isaiah Rashad and SZA, the label's strength has been the distinctive personalities of each MC and the relatively similar vibe of most of its music. Lots of that is thanks to in-house production teams Digi+Phonics and THC (who will probably get Crew Love features of their own at some point), who have produced tracks for nearly every artist on the label.

Read on to get in-depth information on every artist currently on TDE's roster, and check out a detailed timeline of the label's rise to the top right here on HNHH.
