Anthony ‘Top Dawg’ Tiffith Honored With Watts Street Named After Him

City Councilman Tim McOsker, whose 15th District includes Watts, celebrated Top Dawg with an Instagram post on Saturday.

“As the founder of TDE, Top Dawg has had a transformative impact on our beloved community of Watts,” McOsker wrote alongside a series of pictures of Top Dawg at Saturday’s ceremony. “Raised in the Nickerson Gardens housing development, his commitment to uplifting local talent and fostering a sense of pride within our beloved Watts has been a beacon of hope.”

He added: “Top Dawg is a great example of somebody who comes from community and has created for himself an opportunity to become such a significant figure beyond the limits of our beloved Watts — but doesn’t forget where he comes from. And he does that by making sure he’s in Watts, uplifting folks.”
