Kendrick Lamar Has Reportedly Left TDE

Kendrick Lamar addresses rumors that he left Top Dawg Entertainment.

UPDATE: Kendrick Lamar has responded to rumors that he has left his flagship label. Taking to Instagram on Tuesday (October 6), TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith shared a “PSA from Kendrick Lamar” featuring video of a stuffed animal with narration by Kung Fu Kenny himself. 

“Top, you gotta stop them from smuttin’ my name, man,” he says. “They been smuttin’ my name all year, man. You ain’t said nothin’, man. Enough is enough, man. I done shook the label and all that, man.”

He continued, “They must don’t know about that pickle juice that’s under your red cap, about that sweat that’s holding that red cap together. The reason why it don’t fall off your head, man…that lubricant. You need to tell them the reason why that cap don’t fall off your head, man. So why would I fall off?“

The word on the street right now is Kendrick Lamar is no longer signed to TDE (yea right). The unfounded rumor was started by Antixbound, a collective who have been credited with leaking information about TDE in the past. 

Antixbound claimed during a Instagram live session that Kendrick Lamar has left Top Dawg Entertainment for the recently launched PgLang, a media company that includes a record label, movie studio and publishing house. Kendrick Lamar launched pgLang back in March with his manager and former co-president of TDE, Dave Free. The announcement was made via a short video that included appearances from Baby Keem, Jorja Smith and actress Yara Shahidi. 

PgLang’s label’s roster will reportedly include Baby Keem, Jorja Smith, Murder District, and more. 

As the conspiracies get louder it got the attention of TDE president Terrence “Punch” Henderson, who 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.”

Still no official word on what’s going on or if Kendrick has left TDE, but the wild takes are already flying on social media. Check out some of the reactions to Kendrick Lamar “leaving” TDE below. What I get from this is people really do not like TDE.
