NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Atlantic recording artist Ty Dolla $ign is celebrating his fast rising stardom with a flurry of high profile activity set to keep the Los Angeles-based artist in the spotlight through the summer and beyond. To kick off the summer, Ty can be seen on newsstands everywhere as he graces the cover of The Fader's "Summer Music Issue," and XXL's annual "Freshman Issue," known as the prestigious list of hip-hop's most important new stars. Ty is currently completing work on his massively anticipated debut album, "FREE TC," slated for release later this year.

"Or Nah (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard)" -- the latest single from Ty's acclaimed "BEACH HOUSE EP" -- is a surefire summer smash, with the remix, featuring The Weeknd, available for purchase at all DSPs and streaming services today. The single recently exploded as the Most Added track at Urban radio outlets nationwide and is continuing to climb the top 10 on the iTunes "Top Hip-Hop/Rap Songs" chart.

Acclaimed as a smooth and charismatic live performer, Ty is poised to spend this summer bringing his entertaining live show to venues nationwide starting at this year's BET Awards Weekend with a set at the 2014 BET Experience on Saturday, June 28th.

Known for his high-energy live shows, Ty is set to team up with fellow Atlantic labelmate and Taylor Gang member Wiz Khalifa, as well as a cavalcade of other hip-hop superstars including Jeezy, Tyga, DJ Drama, Rich Homie Quan and more, for this year's "Under the Influence of Music Tour," kicking off July 24th at Scranton, Pennsylvania's The Pavilion at Montage Mountain and then travel through the summer. Following this, Ty will then embark on the hugely anticipated international leg of "The Beach House Tour" which will see the singer hitting cities such as London, Paris, Amsterdam and more, with additional European dates still to be announced.

Meanwhile, "Paranoid (feat. B.o.B)," the EP's breakout hit single, has just been certified gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000. The DJ Mustard-produced track proved a top 5 Urban radio smash earlier this year while also breaking into the top 10 on both Billboard's "Hot R&B Songs" and "Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs" charts. In addition, the "Paranoid" companion video -- directed by Ethan Lader (Bruno Mars, Travie McCoy, B.o.B, OneRepublic) -- remains an online sensation with individual views over 19 million at Ty's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/tydollasign.

Furthermore, Ty made a number of high profile TV appearances, performing "Paranoid" backed by the legendary Roots on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as well as visits to BET's 106 & Park and the nationally syndicated Arsenio Hall Show.

"BEACH HOUSE EP" sees Ty collaborating with a wide array of top hip-hop stars and studio wizards, including Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, French Montana, Travi$ Scott, Fredo Santana, Casey Veggies, with production from Young Chop, DJ Mustard and even Ty himself. Additionally, the 7-song collection features additional production contributions from violinist/arranger Peter Lee Johnson. The EP follows the breakthrough mixtapes, "BEACH HOUSE" and "BEACH HOUSE 2," the former acclaimed by Pitchfork for its "dense, immersive production" and "(Ty's) voice: a syrupy tenor that can contract into taut staccato sing-rap or spread out into drippy vocal runs at a moment's notice."

Born Tyrone Griffin, Ty Dolla $ign has been an in-demand writer, producer, and featured artist since helming YG's 2010 smash, "Toot It and Boot It (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign)." Since then, his credits include work alongside the likes of Trey Songz ("Fumble") B.o.B ("HeadBand (Feat. 2Chainz)") and Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg, whose "Young, Wild & Free (Feat. Bruno Mars)" proved a GRAMMY® Award-nominated blockbuster. The music from Ty's production team, D.R.U.G.S. (Dirty Rotten Underground Sound), dominated the airwaves in 2013. This new era of L.A.-bred producers and musicians -- which also includes DJ Mustard, Nate3D, Chordz and James Koo -- has redefined the sound of West Coast hip-hop with heavy 808s and a greedy snap.

A series of increasingly hot mixtapes earned further attention, leading Rolling Stone to call Ty one of the "10 New Artists You Need To Know in 2014." As if all that weren't enough, the gifted singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist remains a highly demanded collaborator, co-writing Chris Brown's top 10 smash hit, "Loyal," while featuring on new tracks from artists spanning Trey Songz, Meek Mill, Lupe Fiasco, DJ Mustard, 2 Chainz, Wale and more.
