Ty Dolla $ign is easily one of the most reliable melodists in the entire rap game, having long solidified his position with acclaimed albums like Beach House 3 and an abundance of scene-stealing guest appearances.
Now, Ty Dolla has officially added another one to his discography with Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, a stacked project featuring contributions from Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, and many more.
And while the coveted “King Of Hooks” title has been widely recognized to be Nate Dogg’s honor, Ty Dolla $ign has long fielded praise of a similar nature.
In fact, during a recent interview with Power 106, Ty actually revealed that Snoop deemed him to be “the reincarnation of Nate Dogg,” a high honor from one of Nate’s closest collaborators.
“I feel blessed, I feel honored,” says Ty. “Nate Dogg was carrying a huge torch and he passed it down. I just talked to my other homie, and he told me he talked to Snoop on his birthday, and Snoop said I was the reincarnation of Nate Dogg. When I heard that, I was like, alright, Snoop saying it? That means everything. Like I said, it’s an honor and I feel blessed to carry that torch. It’ll be passed on again. I just encourage for the next artist out there, be yourself — be a one of one.”
