As HotNewHipHop points out, Antibound is not affiliated with Kendrick or TDE but they have been known to leak information about TDE in the past.
In March, Kendrick launched the mysterious pgLang, described as a multilingual collective who tells stories through media including music, film, television, and books. To accompany the announcement, he also released a video, directed by Dave Free, with appearances from Yara Shahidi, Baby Keem, and Jorja Smith.
– Isaiah is dropping after Reason
– Kendrick is 100% dropping before the year, and he would’ve dropped earlier BUT COVID ruined the albums rollout.
– T.D.E. didnt know about pgLang till everyone else did, and are having tension because Kendrick didn’t tell them.
There has been no confirmation, but around the time the rumors surfaced, TDE president Punch took to Twitter to issue a cryptic response. “Smh can’t even try to be mysterious and vague in my tweets no more…” he wrote in one tweet, adding, “A rumor gets halfway around the world before the truth get it’s shoes on. Lol.”
Smh can’t even try to be mysterious and vague in my tweets no more…
The leaker previously claimed that Kendrick is “100% dropping before the year” and that COVID has impacted his album rollout. They also allege that TDE didn’t know about pgLang until everyone else did, which has caused “tension.”
In October 2019, prior to the launch of pgLang, Kendrick’s manager Dave Free left his role as TDE president to focus on Baby Keem and his film career. He directed many videos for TDE’s roster including ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Kendrick.
New music from the Compton rapper could be imminent. Last month, Kendrick was spotted shooting a music video in downtown Los Angeles. In May, TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith seemed to indicate that he was still signed to the label when he told fans that the wait for music would soon be over.
“Stay patient king Kendrick will return soon,” he commented.
