Known for his singles ‘Paranoid”, “Or Nah,” and ‘Blasé ” a long with a long list of writing contributions and features, Ty Dolla $ign has shown that he’s one of the hardest working artists in the industry today. He’s been so busy that it seemed like he wasn’t ever going to give us a new album anytime soon. That changed this week when he dropped his new single “Purple Emoji” which features J. Cole.
So what has Ty been up to the last three years? Why has it taken him so long to give us a new solo project? Here’s a look at what all he’s been into and potentially why its taken him almost three years to give us a new album.

Nao is going to do well here as an artist and I’m going to tell you why.
