Ty Dolla $ign Announces the 'In Too Deep Tour'
Atlantic recording artist Ty Dolla $ign has announced plans for a major North American headline tour. The "In Too Deep Tour" will get underway October 1st at San Antonio's White Rabbit and then travel through late November (see itinerary below). For complete details, please log onto www.dollasignworld.com/tour. Recently named as one of XXL Magazine's "XXL Freshmen 2014," Ty is also busy completing work on his hugely anticipated debut album, titled "FREE TC," due out later this year.
Ty the cover star of Fader's recent "Summer Music" issue has spent the summer alongside Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, and a cavalcade of other hip-hop superstars for this year's "Under the Influence of Music Tour," which kicked off last month and wrapped this past Sunday in Irvine, CA. Hailed as a smooth and charismatic live performer, the Los Angeles-based artist has spent much of the past year on the road, with highlights including a Stadium Stage set at the 2014 Hot 97 Summer Jam and his own wildly successful US run of "The Beach House Tour," with the international run kicking off on August 29th in Hanover and includes stops in London, Paris, Milan, Amsterdam and more.
A gifted singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Ty has fast become one of hip-hop's most highly demanded collaborators. Recent highlights include Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign (Feat. Kill The Noise & Madsonik)'s "Shell Shocked," the Atlantic Records hit single from Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies' blockbuster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; "Dead Wrong (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign)," featured on Trey Songz's recent #1 album, "TRIGGA;" Lupe Fiasco's "Next To It (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)" and a trio of tracks on Wiz Khalifa's new album, "BLACC HOLLYWOOD." Ty is also featured on frequent collaborator DJ Mustard's acclaimed new "10 SUMMERS."
"Or Nah (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard)" the current single from Ty's acclaimed major label debut, "BEACH HOUSE EP" has proven an undeniable smash. The single, which is rapidly approaching Gold certification, exploded as the Most Added track at Urban radio outlets nationwide upon its spring release before ascending the top 10 on the iTunes Store's "Top Hip-Hop/Rap Songs" chart. In addition, the "Or Nah (Remix) (Feat. The Weeknd, Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard)" companion video directed by Ryan Patrick is an online sensation, drawing nearly 17 million individual views at Ty's official YouTube channel, http://youtu.be/TUj0otkJEBo.
Furthermore, "Paranoid (Feat. B.o.B)," the EP's first breakout hit single, has been certified gold by the RIAA. The DJ Mustard-produced track proved a top 5 Urban radio smash earlier this year while also crashing the top 10 on both Billboard's "Hot R&B Songs" and "Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs" charts. The "Paranoid" companion video directed by Ethan Lader (Bruno Mars, Travie McCoy, B.o.B) also remains a YouTube favorite, with over 25 million views at http://youtu.be/cC2ZgCEaLWs.
As if that weren't enough, Ty has made a number of high profile TV appearances, including a performance of "Paranoid" backed by the legendary Roots on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as well as visits to BET's 106 & Park and the nationally syndicated Arsenio Hall Show.
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, his credits include Chris Brown's #1 hit, "Loyal," as well as work with 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. The music from Ty's production team, D.R.U.G.S. (Dirty Rotten Underground Sound), dominated the airwaves in 2013. This new era of L.A.-bred producers and musicians which also includes DJ Mustard, Nate3D, Chordz and James Koo has redefined the sound of West Coast hip-hop with heavy 808s and a greedy snap. A series of increasingly hot mixtapes earned further attention, leading Rolling Stone to call Ty one of the "10 New Artists You Need To Know in 2014."
