Hear It First – Ty Dolla $ign ft. Charli XCX and Tinashe, “Drop That Kitty”

drop-that-kittyIf you feel uncomfortable with listening to this song due to its title, I don’t blame you. The lyrics’ content isn’t much more gratifying either. Luckily, Tinashe makes this song slightly more bearable and may be the reason I find myself coming back to the song.

The whole thing just tries way too hard to merge Pop, RnB and Hip-Hop and just flops. I can picture listeners enjoying it, just not on this planet. Still, you can check out the new song and hear it first below:

Music Recommendation – Single – Wiz Khalifa ft. Ty Dolla $ign, “Refresh/Say No More”

wiz-khalifa-ty-dollaYou liked these two together on their hit Or Nah, so two of the biggest faces of Taylor Gang came back together to give you 8:40 more of their music. However, Wiz Khalifa sounds more like his prime form and Ty Dolla $ign manages to carry much of the song. Throughout, it is slow while lengthy but manages to resemble one of my all-time favorite songs, Remember You.

The song starts with Khalifa rapping about the same ole same ole, behind a rather ominous but fitting beat. I would wait until Ty Dolla $ign jumps in before fully judging this song, however. His voice makes the song a bit more interesting, though he makes me feel like an old man trying to hear what he is whispering on the chorus.

Overall, I would rate the song/songs/noise for eight and a half minutes at:


This project is very slow-paced, which is not necessarily bad, but has a problem fitting into a time length and keeping the listener paying attention. The Say No More section is way better, but both are enjoyable. I would have loved hearing The Weeknd on this track, but then again I do not know a song that I wouldn’t enjoy hearing The Weeknd add his voice to. Somehow this article transformed into praising The Weeknd, but then again no one ever said that they wouldn’t prefer a meal without dessert.

So go ahead and give the song a listen below. I highly recommend that if you will listen to it, play it in full or don’t play it at all. Hear it in full and pretty much first below:

Music Recommendation – Single – Ty Dolla $ign ft. IamSu, Lies And Dreams

ty-dollaThis one is a Samsung Owner’s Hub exclusive, so it would be hard to catch this song. However, I discovered in on HipHopDX.com and thought it was worth sharing. Ty Dolla $ign shows his actually impressive vocal range (and even more impressive autotune skills) while IamSu raps a solid verse, though the flow is a bit cringeworthy at spots.

“In the morning, first thing I do is roll up, then I think of you.” Then he gets stopped in Iowa. And go ahead and guess what they find on him. Regardless, the song is catchy and features a steady beat that does not interfere with the Ty Dolla $ign’s vocal quality.

The fade-out is slow and smooth, and really ends the song on a good note. I appreciate the smaller things in the song as a whole, such as the enlongated notes and long fade-out. Overall, I would rate it at 8.5/10. I recommend a listen below:
