Though Top Dawg honcho Anthony Tiffith wants you excited for his label’s offerings this year, he might want your prayers for next year’s. The CEO uploaded a slew of status updates to Instagram on Monday night, listing his major artist’s current projects and teasing a couple dream scenarios.

And most notable of all is the final item, a possible reunion that Stereogum mentions could entail the full Black Hippy album we’ve been waiting for:

In TDE we trust.
