Named as one of XXL Magazine's "XXL Freshmen 2014," Ty spent this Fall headlining the North American "In Too Deep Tour." The tour - which features special guest Lil Bibby - kicked off late August and continues through late November (see below itinerary). January 2015 will then see the Los Angeles-based artist joining forces with his longtime friend and collaborator YG for a multi-city tour of Australia and New Zealand - for complete details, please log onto

Hailed as a smooth and charismatic live performer, Ty has spent much of the past year on the road. 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 " Presents: The Beach House Tour."

"Or Nah (Feat. 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. In addition, the "Or Nah (Remix) (Feat. The Weeknd, Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard)" companion video -- directed by Ryan Patrick (Cut Copy, Miike Snow) -- remains an online sensation with nearly 37 million individual views at Ty's official YouTube channel,

Furthermore, "Paranoid (Feat. B.o.B)," the first breakout hit from "BEACH HOUSE EP," was recently certified gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000. 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, logging individual views now in excess of 27 million at

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"; 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 syndicated Arsenio 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."
