Over the past few weeks, Jay Z's Life + Times site has been putting out short documentaries on young artists in a series called "Where I'm From." So far, illustrious producers Hit-Boy and DJ Mustard have been profiled, and now SZA, TDE's first lady, has gott
SZA recently performed a private show at Red Bull Studios, showcasing some music from her Z project.
On Tuesday night, SZA brought her Z EP to life during a private show at Red Bull Studios in L.A.
SZA's new album Z wasn't jam-packed with features, although TDE label mates Isaiah Rashad and Kendrick Lamar made an appearance in some of the few featured tracks. Isaiah Rashad appeared on the soft "Warm Winds" where he sang along with SZA.
Just like every other artist in the game this week, Isaiah Rashad and SZA are down in Austin, Texas for SXSW.
Isaiah Rashad dropped his Cilvia Demo earlier this year, and while it had considerably less hype around it compared to his TDE labelemate ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron project, it was certainly just as solid if not moreso.
We've seen footage of Jay Z and Kanye West tearing it up at SXSW, but while all that was going down, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Isaiah Rashad, and SZA were putting in work at the iTunes festival.
We've obviously heard a lot on the album Oxymoron from the man behind it, ScHoolboy Q, however for this video from Google Play, we get to hear from other TDE signees, Kendrick Lamar, SZA and Isaiah Rashad on the new album and Q himself.
TDE's Isaiah Rashad and SZA discuss their respective upcoming projects. Rashad has "Cilvia" dropping shortly and SZA is working on her "Z" EP. The two also discuss Kendrick Lamar's Grammy nominations and his performance at the event.
A week or two ago 50 Cent tweeted that he had a track with TDE's new signee SZA. It never surfaced at that time, but now it has, in visual form. Fif has hopped on SZA's "Teen Spirit" for a remix and add not one but two verses over the slow joint.
The two TDE signees recently dropped this collaborative track, "Ronnie Drake," and return today with the visual for it. Watch the black, white and red video, directed by Fredo Tovar & Scott Fleishman.Peep Isaiah Rashad Feat.
