Watch : TY – Eyes Open ft OG Rootz (formerly Durrty Goodz), Deborah Jordan & Pumpkin

Taken from new album A WORK OF HEART, set for release March 2nd 2018 on the Jazz re:freshed label.

For his 5th release, rap afficianado Ty takes us on a journey of works from his heart. He tackles subjects like his childhood neighbourhood Brixton and works through issues over the course of the album of poverty, depression, racism, family, hiphop and the creative process to philosophical musings on life and even imagined film soundtracks. The album, entitled ‘A Work Of Heart’ is produced and predominantly written by Ty. The sounds are a mixture of crisp, bouncy production, live instrumentation and vivid and entertaining lyrics. Featured guests include Tall Black Guy, Wayne Francis (United Vibrations) and the legendary Umar Bin Hassan of the Last Poets. Of the album the artist says This is my life work, it’s how I feel…I want to upgrade the view of hiphop. This jazz-infused hiphop album is simultaneously uplifiting and thought-provoking.
