Ty Dolla $ign
Born Tyrone Griffin Jr., Ty Dolla $ign has been an in-demand writer, producer, and featured artist since helming YG’s 2010 smash, “Toot It and Boot It (feat. Ty Dolla $ign).” Since then, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, has fast become one of hip-hop’s most highly demanded collaborators, contributing his acclaimed production and writing skills to Chris Brown’s #1 hit, “Loyal,” Kanye West’s “Real Friends” and “Fade,” Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home,” Rihanna’s “FourFiveSeconds (with Kanye West & Paul McCartney)” as well as work with Big Sean “Play No Games (feat. Chris Brown & Ty Dolla $ign),” Trey Songz (“Fumble”), B.o.B (“HeadBand (feat. 2 Chainz)”), and Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg, whose “Young, Wild & Free (feat. Bruno Mars)” proved a GRAMMY® Award-nominated blockbuster. His “BEACH HOUSE” mixtape & EP series earned him further attention, leading Rolling Stone to call Ty one of the “10 New Artists You Need To Know in 2014.” His most recent release and second studio album, BEACH HOUSE 3, has been hailed by Pitchfork to be “a superbly refined collection of songs, carefully crafted and smartly cast.” With standout tracks including “Ex (feat. YG),” “Don’t Judge Me (feat. Future & Swae Lee)” and “So Am I (feat. Damian Marley & Skrillex),” the album quickly rose to the ranks as it appeared in the Top 15 on the Billboard 200 and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
