Earlier this month, Isaiah Rashad made his welcomed return with a new single, "Free Lunch," his first track since January. He soon revealed that he'd be the next TDE artist to drop an album, as he shared a release date of Sept. 2 for his yet-to-be-titled project. It'll technically be his debut album, as his last project, Cilvia Demo, released in Jan. 2014, was a 14-track EP. Rashad has come through today with another new track, entitled "I Mean. Yet again, it's a bold and triumphant effort from one of the most talented members of the game-changing California label.
TUT Feat. Isaiah Rashad
Tennessee is a quiet breeding ground for great rappers. TUT's Preacher's Son was one of the best tapes of 2015 on the low. Fans have been patiently awaiting new TUT material, and Tuesday morning they got their wish in the form of "G35," a soulful ode to his silver 2003 Infiniti G35.
Yesterday, TDE President Dave Free tweeted out the date "09.02.16," perhaps signaling at an imminent release date for a project from one of the label's signees. Fans of the LA powerhouse speculated that the next TDE release might come from Ab-Soul, SZA, or Isaiah Rashad, none of whom have put out a project since 2014. Signs now point toward the lattermost artist, as the young Tennessee rapper has shared a new single, "Free Lunch," on Apple Music.
Everybody Shut Up
Jesse Boykins III Feat. Isaiah Rashad
The eclectic Brooklyn-via-Chicago R&B singer/producer Jesse Boykins III returned today with a new project, Bartholomew, his first since 2014's Love Apparatus LP. The new tape includes a wide range of exciting guest features, from Dej Loaf to Willow Smith to Audio Push.
Childish Major Feat. Isaiah Rashad & SZA
While most of us have been celebrating the Fourth of July, multi-talented producer/singer Childish Major has been doubly celebrating as it also happens to be his birthday. He's cooked up his very own birthday song, and he's got some pretty strong features in the mix, from two of TDE's underdogs. After quickly getting some artwork done for it via twitter, he's come through with the full collaboration.
The last we heard from Isaiah Rashad was his September single "Nelly." The infrequency of his output, though, has only caused fans to meet each new release with more anticipation, as everything he has put out has been more than worthy of the brand that's behind him, TDE.
A couple days ago TDE said that new material from Isaiah Rashad was on the way, and it turns out they weren’t lying. Tonight, the label decided to let go of a new track out of the blue called “Nelly.”
Audio Push Feat. Isaiah Rashad
Hit-Boy's HS87 crew has a lot of potential, but over the last couple years, Audio Push have proved themselves the most likely to blow of the bunch. Starting out in L.A.'s Jerk scene, the duo have proved their versatility on subsequent releases, putting out yet another cohesive mixtape with The Good Vibe Tribe earlier in the week.
Benny Cassette Feat. Isaiah Rashad
If you weren't aware that Benny Cassette is signed to G.O.O.D. Music, don't worry, neither were we.
Caged Bird (Jager)
Kembe X Feat. Isaiah Rashad
Kembe X returns to our front page for the first time since July 2013's "Ugly Fuckling" with yet another vertebrate-referencing single. "Caged Bird" is collaboration between X and TDE's Isaiah Rashad with an instrumental courtesy of Cilvia Demo's The Antydote.
Qualmes "Direct Deposit" series is still going strong. The rapper has just delivered the first instalment of the new year with "Cognac Convos". The new cut comes complete with an instrumental from DannyDee, who just got a huge look with a beat for Isaiah Rashad's Cilvia Demo on "Track 13". Qualmes is fresh off of dropping his Advocate Of mixtape, which dropped at the top of the month. If you haven't checked it out yet, make sure to do so here.
Isaiah Rashad Feat. Jean Deaux
TDE's new signee, Isaiah Rashad gets together with rising Chicago songwriter Jean Deaux on a new track from his upcoming Cilvia project. Rashad shows his versatility by switching up his delivery from the first to second verse, while Jean handles the hook. Isaiah's new 14 track effort hits iTunes tomorrow, but it's out now in New Zealand. Get Lorde to buy you a copy. Quotable lyrics:
RIP Kevin Miller
Top Dawg Entertainment promised us some new music today, and lo and behold it's arrived from their newest signee Isaiah Rashad.

Listen on the Soundcloud below (click 'read more') and let us know if you're excited to hear more from Isaiah. Quotable Lyrics
Isaiah Rashad Feat. Michael Da Vinci
TDE's recent signee is back with another new track, with Michael Da Vinci on the assist. Danny D takes care of the instrumental on this one. TDE just revealed that they'll be releasing no less than 6 albums in 2014, so "Brad Jordan" could possibly live on one of those. Quotable lyrics:
Isaiah Rashad Feat. SZA
Give Ronnie Drake (Prod. by The Antydote) a spin - it's a new offering from Isaiah Rashad, featuring SZA. It was dropped on Friday, November 1st, 2013. Isaiah Rashad's rap artistry continues to improve with every release, something which is most definitely evidenced on Ronnie Drake (Prod. by The Antydote). His ever-expanding catalogue is definitely better for it, and we're looking forward to the next piece of the puzzle - aren't you?

Kendrick Lamar Feat. ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock & Isaiah Rashad
Bump BET Cypher, the latest cut from Kendrick Lamar which features ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock & Isaiah Rashad on the assist. It dropped on Wednesday, October 16th, 2013.
