Ty Dolla Sign new album, “Free TC” dropped on November 13th with features such as, Brandy, Fetty Wap, BabyFace, Diddy, Trey Songz, E-40 and more. Despite the epic lineup of features, the most memorable aspect of the album is the content. It’s intriguing to listen to a project showcasing various topics that’s of importance to an artist rather than the typical rich lifestyle artist tend to rap about. The 16-track album also has a variation of beats that truly demonstrates Ty Dolla Signs ability to make music that will appeal to different types of music lovers. Some beats provide an r&b vibe, guitar based or have a pop feel.
There’s also a dose of honesty handed out by Ty Dolla Sign with this new album. On the second track, “Saved” featuring E-40 Ty Dolla Sign raps, “No I won’t save her, Dolla Sign fuck but he won’t date her.” Some of the songs on “Free TC” such as “Saved,” “Know Ya,” and “Horses In The Stable” are dedicated to the promiscuous women in the world. Ty Dolla Sign also has a few relationship geared records that range on both sides of the relationship spectrum. “Credit” featuring Sevyn Streeter is a song Ty Dolla Sign uses to represent all the men who try to change their ways to make their girl happy yet she’s still unhappy. On the other hand “When I See Ya” featuring Fetty Wap confronts the topic of messing with a girl although she has a boyfriend and vice versa.
The most meaningful song on “Free TC” and probably one of the most meaningful records of 2015 is called, “Guard Down” featuring Kanye West and Diddy. Ty Dolla Sign provides a lot of encouragement on this track with lyrics promoting faith, “Sister don’t let your guard down.” “Guard Down” mentions the fight not being over and the loss of close people.
Therefore, Ty Dolla Sign really put together a well rounded body of work. “Bring It Out Of Me” is only one of several fun and wild night records. Stream above and share your thoughts!
