Isaiah Rashad Calls TDE Signing A Blessing From God

Isaiah Rashad also speaks about his familiarity with ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul & Jay Rock before his signing with TDE.

Isaiah Rashad, the latest Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) signee, recently spoke about what it felt like to sign with the imprint.

"I had a son on the way so it felt like a blessing," Rashad says in an interview with Complex. "I felt like God really swooped in. I was falling and it felt like cushion under the fall." 

During the interview, Rashad also spoke about his familiarity with the Top Dawg emcees prior to his signing. 

“When I was in college all I listened to was ScHoolboy Q’s Setbacks," Rashad says. "Then I hear ‘The Heart Pt. 2’ and I really got into that. Even though I was listening to Q, I hadn’t got invested enough to listen to everybody else. Then I realized that he is the same dude I heard on a hook of a Jay Rock song from when I was like in high school. I heard Ab-Soul, so I started fucking with all of them. It all connected. These niggas were role models to how I wanted to make music. I feel like it might be predestined.

“Getting signed to TDE is like I got accepted into the college I really wanted to be in," Rashad added. "Except they didn’t have all of those bogus ass classes. Ain’t got to take a math class to graduate and shit. But, I will need an accountant if I do this shit the right way. Hopefully, I will need that type of math class. Other than that, I got Punch [TDE president Terrence "Punch" Henderson] as a professor.”

Isaiah Rashad, a Chattanooga, Tennessee rapper, signed with TDE last year. The signing was announced September 2013.
