Top Dawg Entertainment is quietly ushering in a new class of stars to lead the label. Most notably, Doechii made her debut at the BET Awards on Sunday evening with a show-stopping performance. Elsewhere, Reason was busy feeding his fan base with a new Jay Rock collaboration while Zacari teamed up with Isaiah Rashad to drop new music. Completing TDE’s most recent run, Ray Vaughn delivered a new track called “Mannequin.”
“Mannequin” falls in line with his previous single, “Potential.” Aggressive in its production, “Mannequin” showcases the Long Beach native’s wordplay while delivering a catchy hook.
“They took Ls before their ego and the dying for their block/All these Ls, that’s a hand, start to look like three o’clock,” he raps.
“He killed ****, gave him life, damn, they tricked him out his spot/The only reason that he parked ’em, he was goin’ through a lot.”
Ray Vaughn has steadily delivered new tracks since signing to TDE. Over the last few months, he’s delivered reflective tracks like “Picking Cherries,” anthems like “Top Shottas” and playful tracks like “Strong.” Paired alongside fellow TDE acts like Doechii, Reason and Zacari, Ray Vaughn has carved out a unique lane in the imprint’s next generation.
