The Daily Grind Video

If you’re relevant artist in music, chances are you spent the last week performing dozens of showcases at Austin’s SXSW Film & Music Festival.

During GlobalGrind’s time down in the great state of Texas, we caught up with our good friend Ty Dolla $ign fresh off his high energy performance at the Nice Kicks showcase.

With recent news of his “L.A.” collaboration with Kendrick Lamar making headlines, Ty revealed he may ask singer/songwriter Jhene Aiko to join the forthcoming Los Angeles anthem. The “Paranoid” singer also toyed with the idea of holding a contest for L.A.-based singers to audition to become part of the “historical” collaboration.

Ty also teased his forthcoming “Familiar (Remix)” featuring 2 Chainz, which he says is out of this world. Ty’s forthcoming album, Free TC, is dedicated to his little brother, who is in prison for a crime Ty believes he didn’t commit. The proceeds of Free TC will go towards TC’s legal fees.
