In November 2015, the LA-based singer released his highly anticipated debut album Free TC dedicated to free his imprisoned brother. Supported by radio hits “Saved” featuring E-40 and “Blasé” featuring Future and Rae Sremmurd, the latter of which topped at No. 20 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Ty’s first studio album has been described as one of the strongest and most diverse R&B album of 2015.
After embarking on Future’s Purple Reign nationwide tour earlier this year, Ty released a deluxe version of Free TC featuring 4 exclusive tracks including radio hit “Wavy” featuring Joe Moses. After performing on the #SchoolsNotPrison tour over the summer and headlining the Rock The Vote concert at the Democratic National Convention in July, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest project Campaign which includes the single “No Justice,” which sheds light on racial injustice, and features vocals from his incarcerated brother TC.
