"I want to be just like Puff, you feel me?" Ty Dolla $ign looks up from the piano and stares intently through the weed smoke. "Come with a crazy slaughterhouse of artists and hits and then buy a whole bunch of properties... it's possible. That's what Beach House is all about."

A lot of people say they want to be like Puff, but Ty Dolla $ign is really making moves. His back catalog is already impressive, with multiple multi-platinum hits to his name as a solo artist, featured artist, and songwriter. This October, he released Beach House 3, one of 2017's best albums, but he is just as excited by helping other artists and giving back to the community as he is about his own success.

Ty Dolla $ign is building an empire with his family and friends, and his label The MVMNT is an integral part of the plan. With artists like 24hrs, Joe Moses, TeeCee4800, Tish Hyman, and D-Loc (who was Ty's incarcerated brother's cellmate) on the label, Ty's got a lot of firepower on his team. "Get with your crew, do your own shit, and you'll last," Ty says. "I promise you."

We spent a day in L.A. with Ty Dolla $ign and The MVMNT for our latest Music Life video to find out about the Beach House series, his start in music, his aspirations for the future, and much more.
