Tiffith has shown this type giving spirit in Watts for quite some time. The past four years, TDE has hosted its annual Christmas toy drive, giveaway, and concert at Nickerson Gardens, where the CEO and Jay Rock were raised.

Top joined Kendrick Lamar in overseeing Black Panther: The Album, featuring music from and inspired by the highly-anticipated Marvel film. Today, the TDE camp dropped a video for “King’s Dead” starring Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and Future.

Others have also joined in similar efforts around the country, including Snoop Dogg, who donated money for kids to see the movie, and T.I. who teamed up with Walmart for a free Black Panther screening in Atlanta. Actress Octa Spencer did the same in Mississippi.
