RLGT 100 Word Review:
Ty Dolla $ign – Airplane Mode
Ty Dolla $ign might be the next great hook artist in rap. The mantle hasn’t been taken upon by anyone since the passing of Nate Dogg, but seems bent on taking the burden. His debut, Free TC, is due to drop on the 13th, but until then his Airplane Mode EP can satiate your need for chronic infused R&B. A short affair, only ten cuts and 24 minutes, it’s more of a primer to Ty’s abilities as a hook man over Mustard’s new West Coast.
Standout Track: The minute-nineteen “Money Ruin Friendship” has the most contagious melody of the bunch. It’s a shame it’s so short, you’ll definitely be left wanting more. But at that length, it doesn’t hurt to rewind Dolla $ign’s casual croon and Dijon’s bouncing keys.
