This will be Rihanna’s first performance of 2017!

On Thursday (December 21st), Rihanna is a special guest at The 4th Annual TDE and Friends Holiday Concert & Toy Drive/Giveaway in Los Angeles. More details below the video.

Top Dawg Entertainment, the west coast record label home to Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Jay Rock, Isaiah Rashad, Ab-Soul, SiR and Lance Skiiiwalker, is once again partnering with the Nickerson Gardens Housing Projects for their fourth annual two-day toy drive/giveaway and free concert. The concert will take place on Thursday 12/21 at the Nickerson Gardens Projects from noon to 4pm with performances from the entire TDE roster, as well as surprise guests. The concert is open to the public and attendees are encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift to be donated the following day, Friday 12/22, at the toy drive and giveaway. Last year’s surprise performances came from A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa and O.T. Genasis, and the concert was kicked off by an address from councilman Joe Buscaino. The LA Times noted that the “the crowd went wild” when Jay Rock took to the stage, “rapping along with the lyrics and screaming for more songs.”

The annual event serves to bring together the local community for a celebration that focuses on giving back to the neighborhood that gave TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and many others in the TDE family their start in music. Those who attend are encouraged to both have fun and to also work toward continuing community growth and advancement through teamwork, volunteering, and fundraising. The event provides local children with the joys of the holiday season that they might not otherwise experience; gifts, clothing, food, as well as a once in a lifetime opportunity to see their hometown heroes up close with a special free concert. This is a particularly triumphant year for TDE; between Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. and SZA’s Ctrl, the label is celebrating twelve Grammy nominations for the 2018 Awards.

“Welcome to Rihanna Drive… My home. My whole life was shaped on this very road.”

Rihanna was in Barbados on Thursday, November 30, as she was honored with her own street. The news that Rih would have a street named after her in the town of St. Michael was first announced in October. The official unveiling of Rihanna Drive coincided with Barbados’s Independence Day.

A plaque featuring a message from Rihanna appears on the road, formerly known as Westbury New Road. The plaque includes her statement that “My whole life was shaped on this very road.”

Rihanna wore a bright yellow dress for the occasion, a look only dampened by the torrential rain that hit St. Michael on the day. At one point in the proceedings she gave a speech in which she noted the importance of following your dreams: “I guarantee you the only thing that got me here was believing in my dream.”

Check out some HQ pictures from the event below.

a day my people and I will never forget! all the lessons, running around barefoot, nosey neighbors, braiding hair on the step, playing in the cemetery, walking to the beach, rum shop karaoke keeping the whole street awake til 4am ("only the lonely" by Roy Orbison is playing in my head as I type this) , stealing Sammy pomegranates from his tree, begging my mother to let me walk to Jan's shop cause she had American snacks, selling plastic/glass bottles to Peter so I could buy those American snacks, getting my hair hot combed for Harvest at church, doing my homework on my front step while Miss Hyacinth yells "ya gon get belly hurt from dat cold step" across from her veranda, watching iFE walk past with her dreads dragging on the floor like a couture gown, all the times I thought Melissa came to hang out with me, turns out she was dating my next door neighbor all along, rushing to do dishes when my mother's high heels start hitting the pavement as she gets off the bus from work……right here on this street! WESTBURY is more than a community, we're family!!! Thank you for all that you've poured into my life and the woman I am! It takes a village, and I'm glad my village was you!!!! To God be the Glory!!!! #RiRiDrive
