“Top Dawg Entertainment is all about growth and expansion and providing a platform for talented artists to express their art. With that being said I’d like to welcome Doechii to the TDE team,” TDE founder Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith said of the newest artist on his roster. “Doechii’s energy is infectious and I’m excited to see her blossom and share her gifts with the world.”
