Top Dawg, Interscope, & Aftermath make joint venture

Top Dawg Entertainment

Top Dawg Entertainment announced a deal this week with Universal Music affiliate Interscope Records and Dr. Dre’s imprint Aftermath Entertainment. The labels have made a joint venture involving Top Dawg’s golden children of the Black Hippy collective.

This means that forthcoming releases from Black Hippies Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock will come jointly from Top Dawg, Interscope, and Aftermath. This includes Good Kid in a Mad City, the highly anticipated debut (or arguably sophomore) full-length album from Kendrick Lamar.
