Black Hippy -- Compton's own Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and Jay Rock -- "is ready to rule the hip-hop world" according to Respect magazine.

The Top Dawg Entertainment crew covers the publication's Vol. 4 Issue 3, which hits newsstands on April 30.

The four have worked independently as artists yet have stuck together as a group when it comes to features and supporting each other's music.

It's only the beginning, as Kendrick Lamar's 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' LP is still making an impact and Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q are at work on their future projects.

For this, we think Black Hippy definitely deserve respect.
