On Ave’s new NuPac street album track “Truth Be Told PSA,” he makes a hefty claim about nearly joining forces with TDE.

“I see what you’re going through, man. Send my love,” K. Dot said, according to Troy. Not long after their alleged talk, Troy called up his then-manager Hovain to work out a deal with TDE. “I said, ‘Yo, put the plan in action, man,” Ave said. “We gonna go out West when I come home, and we gonna sign with TDE.” (XXL Mag)

In the past, Troy has discussed TDE standout Kendrick Lamar.


Ave’s claims come after his unfiltered interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club earlier this month, where he called Lamar a “weirdo rapper.” He then noted how he was a fan of the Compton MC, adding, “I f— with Kendrick cause the n—a reached out while I was in jail, and that’s some real n—a sh–.” (Billboard)
