Back in March, Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith let the music world know his plans for 2016 and what was the rollout plan. The plan which included six album releases. On Wednesday (Dec. 28), Tiffith tweeted that TDE had met its goal, thanks to the label’s newest signee Lance Skiiiwalker and an unnamed artist who dropped an album this year. Not sure how that one slipped by TDE loyalist.
Taking to twitter Tiffith tweeted:

The Top Dawg crew was pretty busy the past year. With Kendrick Lamar releasing his surprise project Untitled, Unmastered while ScHoolboy Q dropped the Grammy-nominated The Blank Face LP. Isaiah Rashad and Ab-Soul also delivered The Sun’s Tirade and Do What Thou Wilt., respectively while the aforementioned Skiiiwalker debuted his Introverted Intuition album. SZA and Jay Rock were the only two to not drop a project in 2016.
Jay Rock who is still recovering from a motorcycle accident and we all know SZA standpoint on the music industry. A few months back she blasted TDE president Punch on twitter @iamstillpunch can release my album if he ever feels like it. Y’all be blessed.” We still have yet to get an SZA project.
Back to the mystery artist that Tiffith has eluded to, it is anyone’s guess, but Tiffith teased in his tweet, “i will reveal in 2017.” Stay tuned.
