Ty Signs to Tru Thoughts, Announces New Video for 'Like You Never'
Two digital EPs due in the coming months
We are proud to announce that Ben Chijioke, better known as British rapper Ty, has signed to Tru Thoughts Records to begin the next stage in a remarkable career with the release of two digital EPs; the first of which ‘A Kick Snare & An Idea’ will be out in April. Check the video for ‘Like You Never’ below, the first taste of that EP.
With a reputation built on his original style and refusal to hop on any industry bandwagon, Ty is best known for his lyrical frankness and honest portrayals of everyday life, setting him aside from many mainstream hip hop acts and allowing him complete artistic independence. This has led to the release of four successful albums and a Mercury Prize nomination, among many high profile plaudits.
Here’s what he had to say ““It’s really nice to feel part of a family of people working to push your music and your dreams, I instantly get the right feeling about Tru Thoughts and I am looking forward to being able to just fly !!! musically and be in control of what I wanna share with the world…..” Ty
