Highlights include this summer’s “Under the Influence of Music Tour” (alongside Rostrum/Atlantic recording artist Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, and other hip-hop superstars), a Stadium Stage set at the 2014 Hot 97 Summer Jam, and his own wildly successful “DollaSignWorld.com Presents: The Beach House Tour.”

Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard)” was an undeniable summer smash, exploding as the Most Added track at Urban radio outlets nationwide before ascending to the top 10 on the iTunes Store’s “Top Hip-Hop/Rap Songs” chart as well as the top 15 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” ranking, on top of becoming certified Gold for sales exceeding 500,000 units.

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’ blockbusterTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; “Dead Wrong (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign),” featured on Trey Songz’s recent #1 album, “TRIGGA”; and a trio of tracks on Wiz Khalifa’s chart-topping blockbuster, “BLACC HOLLYWOOD.” Ty is also featured on frequent collaborator DJ Mustard’s acclaimed new “10 SUMMERS,” as well as on tracks from artists spanning Meek Mill, Stalley, Lupe Fiasco, 2 Chainz, Wale, and others.
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 syndicatedArsenio Hall Show.
Born Tyrone Griffin, 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 top 10 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.”
