Cilvia

Top Dawg Entertainment managed to dominate underground hip-hop in 2013 without releasing a single album. With the recent promise from Anthony Tiffith, TDE’s Chief Executive Officer, that the label will offer fans six albums in 2014, fans nationwide are anxious for new material. Chatanooga, TN native – and latest signee to T.D.E. – Isaiah Rashad kicks off the new year with his solo debut Cilvia Demo, a fourteen-song album that has been years in the making. He originally captured the attention bloggers with his B.E.T. Freestyle with TDE and continued to build anticipation with singles such as “R.I.P. Kevin Miller,” “Ronnie Drake,” and “Shot You Down.” Boasting features from TDE’s newest songstress SZA as well as ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock, Cilvia Demo offers fans his distinct Southern appeal while still melding with the label’s West Coast crooners and staple emphasis on progressiveness through lyricism.
