  • Word

    It this was the early 2000s, id be like “Aftermath! Aint nuffin after that!” But now im like “Aftermath…cuz your album will never drop”

  • Justin T. Poindexter (@Justp94)

    No, Only Kendrick and Schoolboy Q signed… Jay Rock is still with Strange Music. And Ab-Soul is unknown.

  • Brutally Honest

    The Three Headed Monster (G-Unit, Shady, Aftermath) just became a cerberus with Top Dawg

  • ….

    so kendrick actually is aftermath?
    usually this wouldnt be a good look for artist signing here..but at this point dre could benefit alot from kendrick…so i do feel this will be his next big artist since game

  • ….

    jay rock is not a star..sorry no potential

  • the void

    schoolboy Q>kendrick.

  • wow

    who cares thoe? These nigaz aint gave us nuffin free ever a mixtape/show nuffin so i look at it as its been a major label type thing all the way thru … what this means now is there is major label influence on their releases… which as we all know ahem wiz can be a major fuck up when marketing comes into play congrats and good luck i guess

  • Converse

    Haha prepare to sit on the shelf? Game shoulda warn you niggas

  • Rec

    Yes Jay Rock is signed to Strange… BLACK HIPPY as a group (Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, & Schoolboy Q) are to Interscope. Kendrick is also signed to Aftermath as his solo major deal.

  • wahrheitsgetreu

    not surprising. but still a bad decision. they will have to wait for eternity to release an album. man. even though ymcmb is bullshit, at least they release albums without any shiiit delays.
