“Memphissippi,” based IVAV (a hip-hop division of Curb Records) Rapper Ty Brasel released the music video for his single “4 The Stars”, from his recently released mixtape Destiny: Vol, 1, today following a premiere with Hollywood Life. This mixtape was produced by Dirty Rice, Joseph Prielozny, and Juice Bangers, and features cameos from a long list of hip-hop collaborators, including Jay-Way, J. Monty, Plan G, 1k Phew, Jenna Wright, and Parris Chariz. The success of Destiny: Vol 1 resulted in Ty being featured in Wonderland Magazine, CelebMix, Essentially Pop, PopWrapped, Yahoo Style and more! The breakout single “On Me” featuring Jenna Wright is currently climbing TheHotChart.com at #7. The release of Destiny: Vol. 1 follows Ty’s 2020’s The Divine Storm and 2018’s Destined For Greatness albums which resulted in more than 53 Million+ streams off the back of hit single “Praying Hands,” “Night Dreaming,” and “Highlight.” The release of Destiny: Vol. 1 was a culmination of years of hard work for Ty as he channeled his years of struggling and perseverance to create a mixtape that motivates others to push through the dark times in life.
When asked about the music video for “4 The Stars” featuring J. Monty, Ty said, “We shot the “4 The Stars” music video in San Francisco because that’s where the director, Mike Folabi is based out of. When he brought the idea to the table, it just felt perfect. He did a great job of capturing the essence and culture of the city and it really brought a new life to the song for me. It’s crazy because it’s one of those motivational anthems but it also speaks on the complexities of battling grief & fear while still pursuing your dreams.”
Ty Brasel was born in Memphis, TN, where he grew up at the intersection of East Memphis & Olive Branch, MS. This area, referred to by locals as “Memphissippi,” is where Ty first recognized his passion for music. His style was first showcased on 2017’s “Young T,” 2018’s “Destined For Greatness,” and 2020’s “The Divine Storm” draws inspiration from the southern style of rap he was raised with, as well as influences like Kendrick Lamar, Curren$y, and Post Malone. As a teenager Ty chose a path that led him down a road of substance abuse and crime. After an encounter with God following his senior year of high school, Ty decided to change his ways and began a new spiritual journey. He enrolled into college at Ole Miss and started a hip-hop group with a friend. However, once in college some of those same demons began to present them self again, and Ty was arrested four times during his freshman year. At this point Ty had a choice to make in his life and chose to drop out of school during his third semester to focus his energy on music. With no money and no real plan Ty went home and used his struggles as motivation when creating his music. Ty’s songs are often aimed at people in the down cycles of life, and in his lyrics, the theme of overcoming life struggles and personal demons is ever present. The notion that while there may be storms within, peace and hope are attainable. No better is this hope for a brighter future heard than on Ty’s 2021 mixtape Destiny: Vol. 1 where Ty reflects upon his life to this point.
