Kendrick Lamar, world-famous American rapper, has reportedly left his record label with hopes of starting his own one. The artist was signed to Top Dog Entertainment but a rumour was leaked online that the rapper had left in order to start his own label and call it pgLang.
The artist is credited with rights on the website for pgLang but the online rumours about the real reason Lamar left have had the internet buzzing. TDE's president took to social media to cryptically address the rumours but only said that they travel faster than the truth.
This did nothing to quash the chatter happening on the internet, with many speculating that there was more going on behind the scenes that would have pushed Lamar to the edge.
pgLang is self-described as being a collective of multilingual creatives who will tell stories through music, TV, film and books. The label is also set to include Baby Keem, Murder District and Jorja Smith.
Kendrick Lamar left Top Dog and took collaborator Dave Free with him. The company was registered in March 2020 but the internet's rumour mill is churning about who and what they will sign next.
In other music industry news, Legit.ng reported that American rapper couple Offset and Cardi B, have got fans wondering if they are still getting a divorce like they previously publicised.
Cardi B clocked 28 on October 11, 2020, and the father of her child made sure to make the day a special one for her.
Offset took to his social media page to pen down a sweet message to his wife as she clocked a new age. The rapper described Cardi as an amazing woman and said that he and their daughter, Kulture, are proud of her.
