While TDE continues its run of success, label president Punch announces that he’s transitioning over to the creative side with his debut album.

He tells Billboard that he writes and records often, and now feels its time to pull the trigger.

“I think I’mma do a project for sure,” says Punch. “I think I’m going to finally finish it because I write a lot and I record every so often. I think I’m just gonna go ahead and knock it out at this point. I’m starting to get that itch more and more. Before, it was like, ‘OK, I write a little bit. I can rap. Let me put it down for fun. It’s cool.’ At this point, it’s starting to turn into a burning. I really want to do it now.”

Punch appears on “untitled 05 | 09.21.2014” from Kendrick Lamar’s recently released untitled unmastered. project.

A time frame for his project’s release is currently unknown.
