Its all about the newest member to the “Top Dawg Entertainment” Crew SZA who has recently made history as the first lady to the all-male Hip Hop group. The 23-year-old singer, SZA, stopped by MTV to give details on how #AKOOlSTORY developed into being adding to the TDE roster alongside Kendrick, Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul.
SZA says “They don’t treat me like the girl, like, in the best ways though,” she says. “No one tries to baby me or walk over me ’cause I’m a girl. They let me fight for what I believe in and let me be as creative as I wanna be and just give me free reign. I love that.”
And for SZA not to celebrate her new deal with “champagne and a car,” shows that the singer songwriter is ready to work toward her next big move!

As a reward to the students of Mount Pleasant High School in Rhode Island for winning the Get Schooled National Attendance Challenge, Kendrick Lamar came through and was “Principal Of The Day”. I’m positive that all of K. Dot’s fans wish they went to MPHS just for that one day.
