The new Nate Dogg has arrived.
Before going forward, I would like to state that I wasn’t much of a fan of Ty Dolla $ign. Now that’s no type of shade, tea or whatever else term is being used now to define hate. It was simply the truth, I wasn’t a fan of his voice. But one thing that couldn’t be denied was his songwriting ability and that was phenomenal.
After hearing him on Big Sean’s “Play No Games” with Chris Brown, my opinion started to change slightly. I mean I absolutely love everything about that record. However it wasn’t until I heard him paying homage to his hometown on “LA” that completely sold me.
Why you ask? Because that’s where it hit me. Ty Dolla $ign is Nate Dogg reincarnated. Now I know what you thinking, “You can’t replace a legend like Nate Dogg!”. This is true…you can’t. But you also can’t deny what he is doing for the west coast. Ty is literally bringing that gangster soul back and making it cool for the hood to sing again.
Cue in his debut album, Free TC. Coming in at 16 tracks, the album embodies everything that we need to hear right now from the westcoast singer. With features from Kendrick Lamar, YG, Kanye West, Diddy, Wiz Khalifa, R. Kelly and a long list of other industry heavyweights. Stream Free TC below and be sure to head over to iTunes to grab a copy.
