Top Dawg Entertainment was in for a scare recently. Their in house engineer and frequent Kendrick Lamar producer Derek “MixedByAli” Ali had his hard drive stolen from his car, which was filled with unreleased music.
Luckily, the hard drive was recovered by Hawthorne police and has been returned to its rightful owner. It’s unclear what unreleased music is contained on the hard drive, but considering Ali has his hands in all TDE projects like Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Isaiah Rashad and more, it’s safe to say there was some fire on there. At least $1 million worth of fire according to police, although we have no idea how they came up with that valuation. At least the police did something right this year… Enjoy!
