Ty Dolla Sign is working hard for his new album these days. Therefore we don’t see him much.
During a recent interview with Spin, Cali rapper Ty Dolla $ign opened up his thoughts about rap icon Kanye West, the best of grunge music Kurt Cobain and stopped smoking weed.
The ‘Pineapple’ rapper has explained how he feels work with Kanye West and how he inspired his music. He said:
“I had a meeting one time with Kanye and played him the album. He was like, ‘Bro, nah. You need to do what you do. Add more bass, add more drums. The real shit, that’s what no one else is doing.’ That conversation definitely inspired me and made me go back and go crazy with the live instruments.”
He talked about his favorite rock symbol Kurt Cobain. He said:
“I got Kurt tatted on the back of my leg. The first time I ever actually loved a rock song was ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ and then it made me go and listen to all of his shit. I wish he would have lived longer to really get off everything and I wonder what he would sound like right now. I definitely wanted to pay homage to Kurt because he’s the rock star of a rock star.”
Ty also revealed why he stopped smoking weed. He stated:
“I stopped smoking weed. That was cool, to just completely just clear my head and write songs. Before I would go straight in the booth and freestyle everything and sometimes on this one I wrote shit on my phone, or on a piece of paper, tried to map it out harder.”
