The theme this week is spotlight: Ty Dolla $ign. Thought I’d switch from 4 tracks to feature an artist and another side of him. It feels like he’s mainly seen when he’s being featured on a pop song (like Work From Home by Fifth Harmony). But he’s been releasing quality content for many years. He also released an album today, Beach House 3 and that’s our first feature, Droptop In The Rain. The lyrics are roudy and nasty, a trademark thing for Ty $.
The second track is a boast track, Stand For. This is back in late 2015 where Ty had gained followers and was about to release one of his bigger projects, Free TC. The album sold just above 30,000 copies and reached new trap audiences with the hit single Blasé with a feature from the trap king Future. From the same album, he had a feature from Kendrick Lamar as well. The track was titled LA and is our third feature this week.
He’s always been featured by huge artists; Kanye, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick, Future, Lil Wayne, Wiz, Meek Mill, Gucci, T.I. and many more. It might be because of his label paying enough cash, but it might be – and probably is – a feature-for-a-feature kind of thing, which is where I’d put my bet. He has a perfect voice for doing the hook and for many rappers, the hook is where they need a feature. Hence, Ty is often providing a hook for a verse. This takes us to the last track, It’s A Vibe. It’s one of the main singles from 2 Chainz hugely popular album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.
