Of Course Troy Ave Lied About Almost Signing With TDE Article

On "Truth Be Told PSA," a 32-minute commentary track on his newly-released and insultingly-titled mixtape Nupac, disgraced New York rapper Troy Ave intimated that, upon his release from jail, he had plans to fly out west and sign a record deal with Top Dawg Entertainment after Kendrick Lamar allegedly reached out to him through a mutual friend.

According to TDE's boss man Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith, that story is, course, "fake news."

In a series tweets, Tiffith set the record straight:

While we certainly didn't need confirmation from TDE to know that Troy Ave's story was likely fiction—he's never spoken with Top nor Kendrick—it's good to know we can ficially cross f the missed connection from our running "almost" rapper and label pairing list.
