Notable hooks: "Paranoid," "Or Nah," "Sorry Mama"
Over the past couple months, it's been nearly impossible to avoid hearing Ty Dolla $ign. Taylor Gang's resident ladies man blew up in a big way with his catchy club hit "Paranoid" featuring B.o.B, and continued the success with his Wiz Khalifa-assisted "Or Nah." The records, both on January's Beach House EP, are just some of the latest examples of Ty's ear for smooth hooks. An R&B singer with heavy rap influences, Dolla $ign strikes a balance between the two with smouldering beats and lyrics heavy on sex and drugs.
Unsurprisingly, a number of artists have recruited Ty for hooks of their own. In the past year he has collaborated with rappers ranging from YG ("Sorry Momma") to Snow Tha Product ("Don't Judge Me"). Whether he's talking weed or seducing the ladies, it's clear Ty Dolla $ign is a hook man in demand. —Chris Mench
