Ty Dollar $ign set to cash in on popularity with summer NZ tour
One of hip hop's hottest artists is returning to our shores this summer
Ty Dolla $ign will perform concerts in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch, starting at the end of January. He will be joined by special guest Kent Jones and Onehunga five-piece SWIDT for the Auckland and Christchurch gigs, while Auckland's Jess B+ will also appear at the Auckland show. All three events will be graced by Mai FM's DJ Sir-Vere.
Since featuring on YG's 2010 smash, Toot it and Boot it, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter-instrumentalist has become of the genre's most high in demand collaborators and solo artists.
Before releasing his debut album late Free TC late last year, the 31-year-old artist born Tyrone Griffin, had two of 2014's biggest songs – Paranoid (featuring B.o.B) and Or Nah (featuring Wiz Khalifa). In 2016, he's been a feature on two of this country's most popular tunes – Fifth Harmony's Work From Home and Sucker for Pain from the Suicide Squad soundtrack. Ty Dolla $ign first toured here in 2015
