“Each year I try to pick a manager who’s had a groundbreaking year. The roles managers lawyers and executives play, should be celebrated, especially in the volatile entertainment business,” explains Williams. This year that honor goes to Top Dog Entertainment (TDE) for their success as the management team behind Kendrick Lamar’s rise and seven Grammy nominations.
