Ty Dolla $ign has taken 2015 as his year as he released his debut album Free TC and has shared his life with all of his fans.
Most singers in the industry have sex appeal like Trey Songz or can kill the dance scene like Chris Brown but Ty Dolla $ign is different from the rest. Â His raspy Cali accent grasps an audience of not only the sexy, but those who like to party as well.
He tells Fader Magazine, â€œIâ€™m not tryna promote being the best fucking American man. Iâ€™m promoting partying and having fun and being that type of American.â€
Writer for Chris Brown’sÂ LoyalÂ and Trey Songz’sÂ Fumble, the LA nativeÂ keeps his options open to producing and writing.
Bigger than him, he’s using his platform to actually help a cause going on in America and speaks passionately on the subject.
Ty Dolla $ign’s younger brother TC has been incarcerated for 11 years for a murder in California that he did not commit and was sentenced life. In many interviews he’s explained that this album is not about the money but it’s about putting efforts into reopening his brother’s case and to also to make a difference in the world.
According to podcast interview on, Keeping It Civil with Karen, he’s put over $10,000 into a lawyer to look into his brother’s case. Â He also spoke on others in prison andÂ hopes that he can make a difference for those also wrongly convicted of crimes.
Almost a month after the released date of Free TC, fans have reacted to the album positively, supporting his first debut. Ty has said that fans have tried to put him in a category of a R&B singer but he doesn’t want to be put in a box, dueÂ to the different sounds on each track.
With features from Jeremih, Babyface, Jagged Edge, Sevyn Streeter, E-40, and R. Kelly, he has an album with a variety of features that new artists can’t get a hold of.
From the Beach House, Beach House 2, Sign Language, and Airplane Mode, Free TC, has carried up the various sounds that Dolla $ign always delivers. He mentions he is no “copycat” and doesn’t want to sound like anyone else.
Besides the music, supporting the actual causeÂ of why he’s pushing his work is a good enough reason to purchaseÂ Free TC.
On Wednesday Ty Dolla $ign released that he will be on the Purple Reign Tour with Future starting February 2016.
