TY'S "SPECIAL KIND OF FOOL" IS OUT TODAY (Waajeed Remix and "Something Big" mixtape DL)

by Eric C. on April 19, 2010

“Special Kind of Fool” is Ty’s story. The tale of an artist who after ten years, three critically acclaimed albums (Awkward 2001, Upwards 2003, Closer 2006), collaborations with the likes of Tony Allen, De La Soul, Damon Albarn and Estelle, a Mercury nomination amongst other accolades, and a worldwide army of fans, has always followed his heart.

Ty is best known and loved for his lyrical honesty, ability to conjure emotion- fueled poetry out of every day realities, dynamic live shows, and his eclectic sense of musicality, which never really did fit comfortably in to a musical box. Some may have thought him unwise not to jump on various bandwagons, but maintaining his independence and artistic integrity has allowed Ty the space to make consistent and uncompromising classic albums for the last 10 years. “Special Kind of Fool” is a cheeky hint that the wisest course is to be yourself and follow your passions in life, no matter what others might say about you.

Bought it today! Really nice work. But no solo tracks. Every track on the album is with a feature.

@Josef Thats what Ty does. He gives other people their shine & creates music with them.

Kinda like the old skool way of doing things but giving them credit too! ;)
