Over the past few years, Top Dawg Entertainment has dramatically expanded its roster—both in terms of artistic license and the number of signings. And among those new acquisitions is Isaiah Rashad, a rapper from Chattanooga.
Although his TDE debut has yet to be released, he has already shared his first single, "I Shot You Down," for the label. The song has received numerous remixes, including those that featured labelmates Schoolboy Q and Jay Rock.
In a recent feature with Complex, Rashad describes the influence that Chattanooga has had on his music by saying, "I felt like it influenced the way my music sounds now. Chattanooga is really calm, but it's really aggressive at the same time. It's hard to get out of it. Like I said before, I think the music reflects that."
In just the past few days, TDE has shared the video for Rashad's latest track, "Ronnie Drake," which also features vocals from recent TDE signee SZA. In the evocative black and white video, we see Rashad and SZA hanging out in Chattanooga—riding bikes, visiting family and spending time around junk cars. Watch the video below.
Rashad's "Cilvia" is due out sometime in December.
