Isaiah Rashad Says

Isaiah Rashad solely focused on making music following TDE signing, says his "whole life has changed."

With today’s (January 28) release of Isaiah Rashad’s Cilvia Demo EP, the Top Dawg Entertainment signee now serves as the first artist from TDE to release a project in 2014. Isaiah addressed his newly-released project during a recent interview with Revolt TV.

The Tennessee rapper commented on taking listeners for a ride on Cilvia Demo EP and compared the project to the feeling that comes with spending a long night with friends..

“I gotta emphasize that this my first project. But in my project Cilvia I just wanna take you on a ride,” Isaiah said. “Imagine like getting off work at like six o’clock, 6 PM. And like you don’t go home. You with your homies. And you get home at 6 AM. That’s what my project is. And I don’t wanna give you like a sum up of my whole life, but I can give you like the past two, three years. I can sum it up in 10 tracks. 10 cool ass tracks and that’s what I’mma give niggas.”

Isaiah signed to TDE early last year, a moment he recently referred to as a “blessing,” and as a result now joins the likes of SZA, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, and Kendrick Lamar. The Southern emcee briefly spoke on being signed to a label that features one of music’s biggest rappers.

“Imagine being—not necessarily a rapper, but being an artist,” he said. I draw from what’s happening right now all the time. I draw from the conversations that’s happening right now. And all I can think to rap about is I’m around the biggest rapper in the world and my whole life has changed. Like signing [and] being where I’m at really just put me in the middle of all I gotta do is make music. And you never think about how much pressure you can put on yourself when all you gotta do is make music…Rapping and making music [the] only shit that really give me some type of peace of mind.”

Towards the end of last year, TDE head Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith revealed that his label plans on releasing six albums this year. Tiffith shared the news in a post made to his Twitter account on December 22, 2013.

    Big fan of Kendrick, but I think you meant 14 tracks Rashad, it's a 14 track EP, and btw it's a EP, does that count on the 6 album releases?

      you cant call it an ep if theres 14 tracks LOL thats basically an album some cats put out albums with 8 or 9 songs these days

      its basically 10 don't take it so literal. the intro is nothing crazy in terms of content, and the remix to shot you down is a bonus. the project itself doesn't really feel like an album tbh, its all over the place, so an EP is pretty much what it is.

    if all it takes is 10 tracks to sum up your life, I really have no interest in anything you have to talk about. Also, why would you release more music if you wrote about everything already in 10 songs. im confused.

      If you really have absolutely no interest in listening to his 10 tracks just because he summarized all of his life struggles thus far, you are being an ignorant fuck. Listen to his music before you say shit.

    I read rumors that the black hippy members were not getting paid their royalties. I read they were planning to leave TDE in 2014 and sue him for getting raped out of money.

      I attended the grammys and k dot told me he was getting screwed over by the label.
    • Listen
      No one here is going to believe that you went to the Grammys and Kendrick just decided to tell you something he has never mentioned before. Nice try though.
