T.Y. – Hold Me Down [Audio]
Hamilton, ON – Originally published August 26, 2014 – Hamilton-based MC T.Y. returns this week for the third installation of #TYTuesday. T.Y. is campaigning for his forthcoming project by hitting us with a new remix every single week. Last week T.Y. got in on “You Got Me” by The Roots. The week prior, he remixed Souls of Mischief’s “93 til Infinity” and threw us a very Pro Era-esq performance. Actually, I ended up hailing him as, “Canada’s answer to Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era crew.”
Anyways, T.Y. is back this week with a remix of “Provider” by N.E.R.D (side note on that: you may remember the video featuring Pusha T as a drug dealer; tee hee). Check the track below.
This remix takes a totally different spin on the darkness that was the original. This joint is all love; love to the homies holding T.Y. down from day one and beyond. It’s also a plea. T.Y. asks his peeps to hold him down. Which is humble as it gets.
Rap cats can get knee-deep in the the game and forget their priorities. T.Y. wants to keep things on the clear, so he’s being all proactive and stuff and asking for guidance before he loses himself. We’re also given some insight into T.Y.’s progression along the way: “Twelve years ago/ Seven months/ And eight days/ That’s how long ago I wrote my first song in sixth grade.” Happy 12 years, seven months, and eight days of rap anniversary, T.Y.!
About: Yours Truly, T.Y.
After a brief hiatus following “Brooklyn Way” and “Let Me Ask You” earlier this year in March premiered on The Come Up Show. Fans have been patiently awaiting the move and the anticipation couldn’t be any higher. Humble as ever, T.Y. has been gearing up to take things to new heights with his new project – which remains untitled at the moment. It’s one that will touch people emotionally, he is a man of the people, and the people stand in his corner willing to go to extreme lengths to support him in any plight he chooses to embark on.
