Ben Chijioke, better known as British rapper Ty, is taking over the Espy front bar for a killer free entry show on Thursday 13th February.
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.
After gaining notoriety on the London underground scene Ty signed to Big Dada records in 2001, the same year his mighty debut album ‘Awkward’ was released. The union between the artist and label saw a further two albums followed by his forth solo album ‘Special Kind Of Fool’ released via BBE records.
Ty signed to Tru Thoughts in early 2013 and began releasing the EP series ‘Kick Snare and An Idea’. Part 3 launched at the start of the year, which includes remixes by DJ Spinna, Lil Dave and Baby Dukes. Expect to hear these new tracks along with Ty’s impressive back catalogue!
