if your material is good and u please your fans everytime u drop it doesnt matter how long u take.


meanwhile u got artist dropping sh*t so fast and its so trash that their fans dont even listen to the sh*t past the 1st week.

I don't know why but I could hear Prodigy from Mobb Deep when I read that.

He should drop a mixtape next then the joint album with J. Cole followed by another mixtape before his second album.

I pray for a Black Hippy album somewhere in there but Q kinda took my hope away.

I'm loving my version of GKMC though. It's flawless. Classic type album that I listen to daily and will hold me down for a minute. Still fu*king with Section 80 & O.D. as well. K. Dot's music is timeless.

Just hoping for Q and Soul to drop some new heat soon.

He toured off Section 80 for a year plus, he can tour off GKMC for another year, along with EP and OD and unreleased ish he has a nice enough catalog for a good 90 min set or even a few hours if he really wants to give people their moneys worth. As people have already mentioned he potentially has a collab mixtape or album with Cole, plus he will drop enough features here or there on TDE and other ish to keep the rap groupies wet. 2 years is a good break to milk his catalog while its fresh and when new found fans might be going back to his older ish. He will also build anticipation if he stays away for a little bit.
From a business perspective what is very important is for him to lay low from a PR point of view, not go around saying stupid sh*t that alienates fans or make his label question his judgment and shelve him. The other thing I think is probable given history is that the the second major label album will likely be more commercial, if that one is also supposed to be on Interscope. I dont know how many albums their deal covers. Would also be nice to know if he has the option of dropping a TDE only album.

We will also apparently see Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and Q solo albums that drop on Interscope....could get interesting.

^^^^THIS.

That fast food mentality is fools gold. Now if you just in it for a quick buck then get it how you live.. But Artist who truly care about their craft and longevity know better.

That's why ever year you get a new hot n*gga and in 1-2 years you'll never hear from them again.

If your putting out high quality content you dont have to worry about constantly staying on "the Scene" because the music has extended your staying power by its replay value.

I think there's a big misconception between being "the trending man of the hour" and being able to sustain long term success as an ARTIST.






the over grind factor proved beneficial financially but on the flip side negatively effected creativity and longevity as a whole........... i remember a time when there was a 2-3 year gap as far as an artist dropping an album. not to mention that if a mixtape was dropped, that sh*t was like a special event. nowadays art is rushed, and the money increases but skills decrease.

I'll wait.

The longer a lot of these n*ggas go without keeping their fans fed, the quicker the d!ckriders will jump on the next new n*gga to come out. Its a sad game that few rappers have a loyal core fanbase that will wait for new material.


you grew up in this mixtape basedgod era. i feel sorry for you.

every great artist had years in between great albums.
